“When the famous Spanish flu epidemic killed thousands in 1918, Joseph Pilates noticed that none of those who trained in his physical training had been infected. Today, we have not seen any commercials on TV or in the media about healthy food, food and living water, lifestyle change, positive thinking, exercise (any type of physical activity) and well-being in general. Gyms were closed, forced to breathe in a mask, locked in houses and negativity in the media with only talk about illness and death ... the exact opposite of what a healthy body needs to stay healthy and live in harmony. In an age of hypochondria and absolute panic, the solution is self-education of the mind to prevent disease and psycho-physical well-being." - Anna Devi
Wow it's been a tough week hasn't it! On a positive note, eating well, avoiding sugar and walking with the dog have all helped me process the increasingly dramatic news surrounding "Omicron" and its impact in the UK.
How are you doing?
Where ever you are and whatever you are doing, keep going!
We had a busy work day to day so meals were simple. There is so much to do before we close for a short Christmas break but we are both on it and happy. Night school also closed last night with a question hanging over us because of COVID, would we be able to go back next term? Have loved the classes and the women, we have a good laugh and put the world to rights alongside sewing, its the simple things that connect us these days, isn't it?
Although I had managed to cut out my kimono pattern, I fluffed it right at the end with rubbish sewing which I have to unpick this evening! In the past, I would have borrowed that time honoured phrase my mum loved: "F*CK IT" and binned it BUT, noticeably my resilience is improving and that I put down to eating a low carb paleo diet.
Unexpected things are happening, it seems and I like it!
