This past week I had been slacking on going to the gym. I was just too tired, I thought I was maybe getting sick. It then occurred to me that I was suffering neuro fatigue!! I had been putting a TON of energy and effort into getting my book finished and off to the printer, and my body finally said “enough!”
Since I started Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) a few months ago, the pressure in my head and the foggy feeling has mostly lifted, YAY! But without the foggy feeling, I don’t always notice the neuro fatigue, which is my brain saying “hey, slow down, lady!”.
Today I worked out for the first time in about 5 days, I tried earlier in the week but I was just so exhausted that my body didn’t want to cooperate. But today, holy cow! I looked in the mirror and did a double take. I had to pull out my phone to look at my photo from a few weeks ago. I couldn’t get over the results that I saw just from 20 days ago! NOW THAT’S SERIOUS MOTIVATION to keep on going!!
If I can do this, I KNOW that YOU CAN TOO! It may seem impossible, and it was for me 18 months ago, but just keep taking small, baby steps. Even if it’s just walking around the block, or doing little squats while holding onto a chair…. getting your body moving gets oxygen flowing to the BRAIN!! Remember to keep hydrated and drinks lots of water…. and no alcohol, it impairs the healing of the brain!! YOU’VE GOT THIS!
