Amazing Body

Amazing Body

The amazing body cannot be replicated by science.  I’ve learned during this flu that the body asks for what it needs.   I’m learning to listen to my body.

Usually I can’t sleep in.  My body says it is time to get up, and I get up.  However, since contracting this flu I can sleep until 9:30am (like I did today.)  It’s obvious my body needs the sleep.

I’ve also noticed the things I crave to eat, if we have it handy and I eat it, I feel physically better.  For example, I was craving maple syrup.  I had some and shortly after consuming it, I coughed up the gunk that was making me wheeze.   Again, the amazing body knew what it needed.

Getting Close

I feel like I’m getting close to being better.  I looked up how long the contagious period is for this flu, and I’m definitely past it now.  (The CDC said 5-7 days.)  It’s now dealing with the symptoms.

The worst symptom is the fatigue.  You think you’re up to going down to the basement to get a bottle of canned fruit.  So, you make the journey, and when you get back upstairs, that amazing body is saying, “You need to lie down.”

I dragged the laundry basked to the kitchen and felt like I had just ran the 440.  It’s the body’s way of saying, “Take it easy.”

Take It Easy

Speaking of Take It Easy, I watched a YouTube video of the Eagles singing Take It Easy.  The camera would swing to the audience and it was full of young ladies — groupies.  It was funny watching their reactions to the lyrics.

Okay, I’m going to take it easy today.  I want to be feeling up to attending my temple shift tomorrow.
