Avoiding the Simple Things in Life
This is a question that comes up quite often for me.
I ask myself that question when I procrastinate over silly things like making a call to sort out a bill that was incorrect, or paying a bill, or writing another blog. LOL.
Anyone who knows me – like my team – can see that I have a lot to juggle on a daily basis. Hence my nickname – “Tsunami Ma.” Phone calls to vendors, customer support, which includes emails and social networking (the newest technology that I am trying to grasp) – that’s just the start of it. Then there is getting my child to and from the park, cooking lunch for the team, putting my child down for his nap (this is my only downtime, which lasts about 15 minutes), etc. And then there are all the other items that still need to be taken care of.
Okay, so those are all great excuses.
But let me ask you. Why do so many of us procrastinate on simple things that could support our health and well being? I can honestly say that I do not procrastinate on these areas or, on the rare occasion that I may, it’s not for long. If I didn’t have good health, I would not be able to live the life I am living now, the life of “Tsunami Ma.” Not only would my body break down but so would everything else.
We need to realize that the more stress or issues we have to deal with in our lives, the more essential it is to find that key factor – balance. This means staying healthy. Maintaining a good diet. Going through simple cleansing, such as nasal cleansing, colon cleansing, liver detoxing – and the list goes on.
These are just some things for us all to evaluate and think about.
