In Search of Help
For those of you who are regular readers, you know that I do not lack opinions. I take a stand, some of which are often controversial, but I figure that if you taking the time out of your day to read my blah, blah, blah, than I better offer something and it had better be damn good – most of the time. I love it when I get to learn from people and try to offer the same.
Moreover, for those of you who know me better may realize that I burn the candle at a lot of different ends. I work full-time at an, um, government agency that has been in the headlines a lot, teach adjunct at Georgetown, write freelance for Media Bullseye, do this blog and also spend most of my time entertaining/coaching either my children or my dog. My close friends often ask me “How do you do it?” and I usually have some flippant answer like “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.” Well, that day feels like it is getting closer.
Here’s the part where I need your suggestions.
Since the last part of last year, I have had one major surgery,three colds, one sinus infection, an ear infection, strep throat and now — the kicker — am recovering from pneumonia. Something tells me that I am doing something wrong because I seem to have the resistance of an infant. And this is despite the fact that when I am healthy I try to exercise, take a ton of vitamins, etc.
I know that many of my online friends have more holistic approaches to health, so I am throwing it out there. Given, I am in my mid-40’s, but I usually have boundless energy and cannot get past the feeling that I am doing something WRONG, WRONG, WRONG.
So, blogger buddies, Tweeps, Facebook friends: what do you do to maintain your own physical, spiritual and mental health? Is it diet, exercise, hobbies, meditation, yoga, bourbon (a shout out to Jason Falls)?
I am running out of ideas and thought that maybe, for once, I would use this space to not spew opinions, but rather to suggest them. Maybe Lou Capozzi did as many predicted, and put a curse on me.
I am all ears – that is, until I get the next ear infection…
Thank you all in advance.
