Illness Isn’t Weakness and Powering Through Isn’t Strength
Great article here from Arianna Huffington, whilst I don't want to get into the political conversation here, the headline spoke to me because it is all about listening to your body and practicing self-love and self-care.
"It’s not weak to get sick. And the science is clear about what happens to our health — and judgment — when we don’t acknowledge our need to heal and recharge...The science is clear. Whether we’re leaders of the country, leaders of companies or just citizens, our health depends on strengthening our immune system by taking care of ourselves...There is nothing we can do about our age. But there’s a lot we can do to boost our immune system. That means getting enough sleep, eating right, making movement a part of our day and not burning ourselves out. And our leaders should be modeling these behaviors, not mocking them."
