Earlier this summer I decided the time was right to start taking control of my health. Like many small business owners, I have been busy taking care of my team, my family and my clients, and have neglected myself.
A year and a 1/2 ago, my high blood pressure but me in the hospital, with what we thought then was a heart attack but turned out to be a benign tumor on my adrenal gland.
The consequence of that is very high blood pressure that does not respond to medication, and makes me extremely tired, and has contributed to a huge weight gain.
As I waded through the process over the summer, I once again partially abdicated my responsibility for my health. Although I have honoured the symptoms of my current diagnosis, mostly by giving in to the extreme exhaustion when I used to fight through it, and sleeping more, I had to give up the exercise program I was registered in, as my blood pressure is dangerously high.
However, owning a Massage Therapy and wellness company, I know I can do more.
This Week in Wellness has begun.
I am starting with two challenges this week and I hope you will join me.
Healthy Start to the day!
Today is the start of a 30 day yoga challenge for me. It is a start so I choose 10 Min Morning Yoga for Beginners from SarahBeth Yoga. It is easy, and in 10 min you can feel the kinks work out.
