Best of Our Blogs: April 17, 2018

Hi guys. I’m recovering from the flu, which makes sense because life has been crazier than normal and I haven’t gotten much sleep. While feeling ill is never fun, it’s given me oodles of time to rest. And it was direly needed. My body and mind needed time to recoup.

I started thinking about how different things were when you were sick as a kid. There was the joy of not going to school and the possibility of a popsicle. I don’t know about you, but getting sick as an adult just feels like another opportunity to worry.

When there’s nothing to do, but think my mind goes free-range. From worrying about whether I’ll get better to analyzing all of my relationships, it’s exhausting physically and emotionally to be ill.

If you’re looking for a distraction too or are worrying about relationships, this is a good week to tune in. All of our posts delve into the topic from healthy and harmonious to codependent and toxic.
