Knowing is different than doing
Knowing WHAT to do is not the same as actually DOING IT.
My back was flared up after a 6 hour flight of sitting. Not the zaps I had pre surgery (not even close) but enough that it was bothering me and I was going into self beat up and worry…
“What if this comes back”
“What if I’m in pain forever”
However, before I went to text my doctor or panic I asked myself if I’d done the basic that I KNOW to do. The answer was no. I had not.
WE MAY KNOW WHAT TO DO BUT DO WE DO IT?
I know to stay truly hydrated but had not been drinking nearly enough water.
I know to avoid grains, dairy and sugar (dairy is a big NO for me when it comes to pain and inflammation) but had it three days in a row.
Movement, circuits and stretching keeps my body aligned but I had not moved through my circuit before my flight.
And, I was carrying all my carry on stuff on the right side of my body instead of in a back pack.
Yikes. That recognition that I was not doing what I KNOW to do supported a shift. A day of truly doing what I know made a giant difference already in a day.
It wasn’t easy btw! I sat down for what was supposed to be a growth dinner at the place I am staying at and it was a giant bowl pasta, cheese, butter…
