I am in 7th Heaven with access to the far infra red sauna again.
This morning I decided to go for a workout followed by a sauna before heading to Glasgow for my workshop.
The sauna is a meditation room for me. I love it in there. The heat, listening to Hale Dwoskin helping people to release and doing my own tapping, codes and visualisation. Just a wee oasis of tropical paradise in the midst of an Argyll Winter.
While making the juice this morning I was attempting to stab the stone out of the avocado when the knife slipped and it wen right into my hand. Owwwwwwww.
Joni started crying when she saw the blood and I was furious ar myself for being such an idiot.
I packed it with some kitchen roll for a bit and it seemed to be fine. So much for getting healthy with raw food lol.
Then I went, did my workout and went into the sauna, here is a picture I took of myself.
While I was in is there it started to throb.
It was just a silly wee cut, nothing to see but the pain got worse and worse.
My hand stiffened up and I could not concentrate on anything.
I showed my daughter who picked up her phone and made me an appointment to see a doc.
Driving became impossible and I realised I would not be able to drive to Glasgow plus was not in a good way for inspiring people. Had to cancel my workshop and was feeling quite sorry for myself.
I went to the surgery which is also the local hospital, and went to visit my uncle and another friend who is in there. My uncle had a stroke 10 years ago but is failing now, our other friend is suffering from chemo and radiation.
That puts it back in perspective.
I also met one of my dads oldest friends he was visiting my uncle, so nice to see him and he was so grateful for his health too. He still drives and plays golf twice a week down at Machrihanish.
In the last 18 months we have lost so many friends and family. We were lucky to have them as long as we did but it makes you think about this aging process and the care that may or may not be available in the future.
You value your health much more when it gets even a little bit compromised and you become a little restricted.
None of us know whats ahead but we need to start taking better care of ourselves to minimise the risks.
This whole getting old malarky does not look that great, best take better care of our bods.
Here is to your health and happiness.
