Lately, i've been under a bit of stress and I haven't done anything to alleviate it. I continued about my days ignoring how I was feeling. And yesterday, it kind of all came crashing down. I had a fever, chills, muscle aches, joint aches, and a massive headache as the cherry on top. I don't always grab the nearest pill but yesterday I had to- the headache alone was enough, never mind the other symptoms.
I spent the day in bed. The whole, entire day. Which gets boring after a few hours, at which point I spent maybe ten minutes tops stretching and then returned to bed. I read, I watched a movie, a caught up on terrible reality tv, and slept. It was a drag, to be honest, but it was what my body needed. And perhaps if I had listened to my body when I realized I was feeling stressed out, I wouldn't have become sick. New resolve: to listen to my body and respond asap.
