For the past few days, I think I caught a flu and couldn’t move much. No one was at home and I felt physically weak. I haven’t been so sick for awhile now and had to ask around how to get better. Learning day by day, trying few strategies, I finally feel I am getting better and have some energy to move around.
I generally have a good health. At least, something I can manage within my day to day activities with help from some simple medications. However, this time, for the first time in my life, I had to take few days off from all my usual activities whilst had to feed myself. Even when I feel a bit better I had to tell myself “just in case, take another day off until you feel at least 80% of your energy”. This ritual lead me to take off four days off from every activities. Although there were some activities that I never dream to take off, I felt really funny to tell others that I won’t able to attend that meeting because I am too sick.
Good health is not something we can buy.
However, it can be an extremely valuable savings account.Anne Wilson Schaef
I finally can fully appreciate my good health that I can do my usual activities without any physical restrictions. In addition, I also realised that only I can take care of myself. Listen to my own inner voice and allow myself to trust my instinct to do things that are sensible.
Interestingly, in another account, I have felt that eating healthy, taking nutritious food, is important part of a healthy life. I now finally understand and appreciate why my mum told me to eat lots of vege and healthy food.
