This wasn’t in the plan

It’s true what they say, if you don’t make time for your wellness you’ll be forced to make time for your illness. I know how tough it can be to feel like you can stop and do that. People are relying on you to turn up and I feel no end of guilt when I feel like I’m letting people down.

I’ve spent the majority of this week full of cold snuggled under a blanket on the sofa, going through boxes of tissues and TV box sets at an alarming rate.

It has made me think about what I could have done differently to perhaps prevent myself from feeling this way. I’m by no means perfect, I could have been eating more fruit and veg and less salted caramel. I could have listened to my body earlier and made more time to rest. I should probably drink more water.

What I need to remember is that even if I had done all of those things I may still have got poorly – sometimes you can do everything you’re supposed to and things still don’t work out how you’d like them to.  Outside forces are always at play – things that are outside of your own control that can have an impact, for better or worse.

All we can do is work to give ourselves the best possible chance of things going our way and then allow whatever is going to happen to happen. Trying to control things outside of our control is a sure fire route to stress.
