Part of the wisdom of age is definitely developing a self scanner. Learning to listen to your body, better judgement and experience is all a part of doing this thing called life. On Friday, my body was telling me, "This is a LOT right now. Too much going on and we're on the verge of getting sick. Let's gear down big shifter".
So instead of doing all the drinking with the Friday afternoon we-just-got-paid-crew at my office, I enjoyed my kombucha in a wine glass (per Abby's survival tips for the weekend) and got my nails done. Self care is part of the getting healthy game and each day I'm trying to get better about feeding my body and my soul.
It's not easy but it's getting easier and always worth it!
