Whenever I’m reminded of this life lesson, it always hits me over the head — hard. Really hard. Thank you sinus headache and runny AND stuffy nose (how is that even possible?): my body’s punishment for refusing to listen to its needs. Apparently running it ragged to meet the demands of life, work, NaNoWriMo, and NaBloPoMo makes it unhappy. Back to the couch I go with my tissues, plenty of liquids, and Hallmark Christmas movies.
Do you listen when your body says to slow down? What happens when you don’t?
