Communing with Your Body

Good communication with your body is important. It tells you things that you sometimes ignore. Ignoring the messages your body sends your mind is not good. You should pay attention, because these are the messages that could mean life or death. For the most part, though, the messages from your body are not life and death important, but they are important. Your stomach knows when it is empty and requires food. That’s because your body’s cells have sent for more fuel and your stomach doesn’t have any. That’s the message entitled, hunger. It’s the same with thirst. That’s your body telling you that it needs more hydration.

Other messages are more subtle. Muscle aches can mean that you are overdoing something and to slow down. Outright pain in your muscles is your body telling you to slow down or stop doing whatever you are doing. Your body tells you when to put on a sweater, or wear shorts. It also tells you when you need rest and when you have had enough rest. It sends warnings about when there has been an invasion, usually by subtle means like messages telling you to rest, or sneezing or having your eyes water. That’s a strong message from your body saying that it needs attention. Of course, sometimes your body gets these messages mixed up. That’s another sign that something is wrong, whether it is an allergy or narcolepsy or whatever. That’s still your body telling you that something is wrong and you need to learn what it is. Your body talks to you every day; you should take the time to listen. You’ll be glad you did.

About

I am not one who is comfortable talking about myself but here goes. I enjoy writing, family history, and reading. I decided to do this blog because I wanted to try something new. I decided to make it a weekly blog because I wasn't sure that I could keep up with a daily one, and monthly seemed like I was writing a magazine. I think I did ok with my choices. You'll notice that there are not a lot of graphics on my site. That's because there are graphics plastered everywhere on the Internet and those sites sometimes take forever to load. This blog is a place where you can kick back, relax and be ready to be amused. At least I hope I willbamuse you. This blog is on a variety of subjects from my ficitional cat agency, the FFL, which is monthly, to instructional blogs to editorials, which are my opinions only. I admit that I don't know everything and could be wrong -- I frequently am. Now, stop reading about me and read what I have to say!
