I’ve had the sniffles and a cough for a little while now, and I’ve essentially just gone on with my life, ignoring everything my body has been trying to tell me. Last night was probably the worst of the ignoring. I decided to go to 2 hours of aerial silks/hoop/dance class instead of stay home and rest. I can do it, I convinced myself. And while I was there, it was awesome. I learned new tricks. I conquered some fears. I felt very proud of myself and my body.
And then I woke up this morning.
My head felt like it was going to explode. My entire body was sore and in some places numb. My nose was entirely stuffed, and I didn’t even have a voice to talk. Even right now, my head hurts so badly that I just want to go home and fall asleep.
Listen to your body folks. It knows what it’s talking about.
