Recently, I found myself in bed for three weeks very sick with Bronchitis. How could this happen – I was healthy and rarely ever sick? Then it hit me and I knew why – this was a wakeup call! Besides feeling horrible, it was very costly in income. Every time I’d been sick before, without fail, it was always after long periods of stress, and or not eating healthy, and or not getting enough sleep, and or not exercising – this time was no different. For weeks, I’d been going to sleep extremely late almost every night, not exercising, and eating sweets again.
At first there was a little fatigue, the occasional headache, feeling a little overwhelmed, a little weight gain and bloating. Gradually all this increased more and more, then I needed strong coffee to jump start my day. All this weakened my immune system and I was becoming run down. The warning signs were there, but I ignored them. In the past, during cold and flu season or even when I’d been around people who were sick, it didn’t affect me because I’d been taking care of myself and my immune system was healthy.
Our mind, body and intuition talk to us – they’re there to warn and protect us. It may be our physical and mental health, relationships, finances, business decisions or other areas of our lives. Sometimes we may get only one warning, however most of the time, it starts out as a whisper, then gets increasingly louder or more frequent. Problem is – negative results are usually delayed. Now, I will no longer compromise my health for anyone or anything.
Pay attention to the early warning signs – it can save you!
