slow motion, fast, underwater healing

Disease and ongoing illness take its toll on our bodies, working them too hard and wearing them down. Wearing the out if we are not careful. When we slow everything down, we can heal faster. Here, we don’t even need to stick our heads under water. We are simply turning the moment into slow motion as it would feel underwater. Slowing our breath, our reactions, our thoughts, our heart rates so that our resting bodies can kick into high gear healing.

Are You Funny During Your Chronic Illness?

are you funny during chronic illness

Usually, the two don’t mix. Funny and illness, what a joke. The sicker I got, the less funny I became. Truth be known, I was way too serious, shhhhhh. Any little funny I had got rubbed raw, sandpapered down to the bone while I was chronically ill. That’s a shame. Funny can help us put illness in its place.
