ch ch ch changes….

by Lisa Donovan

Hold on.  I can’t concentrate.  This flitty, flirty “music” on NPR is making my nose bleed.  Gah.. Who’s the douche that picks this crap.  There is good classical music, for christ’s sake!  Need to change the channel.. NOW. freakin lame world… grumble grumble grumble…….. 

Ok.. There see. I just typed what I was thinking and did not alter anything to make me look like a better person than I am - not even the grumble grumble part.. When did I become this grousing grump of a person? WHEN!?!  It seems, these days, that this (”this” meaning my overwhelmingly and alarmingly worn out, tired, overwhelmed, sour demeanor) is the norm and I want it to stop. 

I am evaluating my habits.  Here’s what I have come up with.  I am not eating right.  I don’t drink enough water.  I don’t get enough exercise.  I don’t get enough sleep.  All of those things add up to a very icky me.   

Today I turn over a new leaf.  I start fresh.  I found a great website that I think any of you ladies, mothers or not, could benefit from.  Check out Dr. Weil - I have been an avid follower of his work since I was in high school, until recently.  He is a brilliant combination of homeopathic, natural healing as well as a trained modern day doc - it’s called integrative medicine and I think it is brilliant.  He talks a lot about proper eating and how to live up to your optimal health.  These are matters that I have always been passionate about and very interested in learning more about. With kids, it has become a bit harder to focus on myself and how my body is functioning - obviously not to positvie recults. He even has a section about how to age gracefully.  It’s never to early to start thinking about that.  And with all my grumpiness, the last thing I feel is graceful.  I think I could use a little help.

You can sign up for his newsletter and fill out a personal survey that will bring you personal helath advice every week - it is called his Optimal Health Program.  I’ll keep you posted on how I am progressing and what proves to work for me.
