As I near the halfway point of Round 2 of treatment, I am again reminded how important it is to keep a good balance between rest and activity. Earlier today I was not feeling well at all – tired and achy kind of like having a virus.
At first I tried to power through and kept working. Then I tried sitting outside in the sunshine, which was nice but did nothing to improve how I felt. As a last resort, I decided to take a nap. Following the nap, I went through with a workout even though I wasn’t particularly motivated to do so.
I am happy to report that the nap and the workout did wonders. I feel much better now. I know that I have to be very careful not to overdo it because I pay for it dearly when I do. I also know that maintaining a good exercise routine will help me mentally and physically and that staying active in other areas is important as well. The trick will be to keep a good balance between rest and activity.
When you think about it, balance is something we all need in our lives. We do better when we have a healthy mixture of work and leisure, family time and friend time, contemplating the serious and simply enjoying a good laugh.
Striving for balance and keeping the faith,
