A Good Time to Start, what? How about feeling better so you have more energy to get your creative going. I had a Sciatica bout 1 1/2 weeks ago. So painful. This is what my chiropractor told me: “You got this because, you don’t stand up straight, you sit waaaay to much and you slouch while you do sit. You haven’t been walking much either (I guess my strolls with mom didn’t count at all, rats).” All rightie then. How did he know all this about me? Duh, Heidi, he said much of his practice is Sciatica related. All that I was doing or not doing can apply to all of us at ANY time of life.
So put your “Fit Bit” on and set the alarm so that you get up after 15 minutes of sitting. Buy some really good walking shoes. I love my Skechers with memory foam insoles (like walking on pillows).And start walking, just good, fairly brisk, walking. It doesn’t have to be much, even 50 yards. And stand up straight and tall while you walk.
Drink a glass of water (8 oz.) after you wake up. You have just broken a fast of not drinking any liquids for about 8 hours. No, coffee or tea doesn’t count. Think of bathing all your cells to get them revved up for your day. I could not understand why I was light headed by 10 or 11 in the a.m. Started drinking that one glass before breakfast and voila, light head — gone!
and an upcycling project I am working on. If you go over to Designsbyheidi.wordpress.com you will read more about the project.
Sign up for my workshop—-“Pick A Pattern” There is still room. I promise you will have fun and maybe even get to wear what you have created home!
How fun is that! Have a wonderful, creative, filled with lots of fresh air walks, Memorial weekend. And a HUGE THANK YOU to all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have in our great America!
