Distraction is the ruling force behind our days. Cell phones, computers, instant email, chats, and text messaging. Now add to the mix a packed calendar with events others have filled for you.
Then there are kids, pets, and parents. A very needy family member. Doctor’s visits. Errands. The Car.
Your list may be a whole lot bigger.
Before you know it, months and years start screaming by. This year is about at the halfway mark. Has everything you looked forward to on New Years Eve happened, or are they at least in progress?
Well, like most people this chronic sense of time crunch sets the stage for less health, not more. This behavior can make dealing with neuropathy or any illness much harder than it needs to be.
One of the first things we do in successful neuropathy treatments is ask patients to commit to better self-care. Why? Because we know from experience in hundreds of cases when neuropathy patients invest more time in them, the result is less pain, more energy, and deeper personal resources to pull from.
But how can we do this? Where do we begin?
It all starts with quiet time, first thing every day. This means no computers, tablets, or phones. Meditation, prayer or simply sitting quietly with a note pad. And if you really want to have the best chance of beating your health problems including the pain of neuropathy, you’ll do the same thing at night.
You see, research (and simple common sense) tells us that as a world, we are no longer disconnecting. We simply will tend to let other people and demands pull on us without a break.
Worse yet, people now let their phones and social media “friends” rather than their inner voices or spirit guide them.
Don’t let this be you.
Shut off the TV, phone, and computers at least an hour before bed. Spend the first part of your day on the “Me” list. Eat Healthier. Stop the alcohol. Exercise and move outdoors in sunlight year round... and anything else you enjoy! ~
So, what do YOU do to build healthier days?
