Tonight, I’m relaxing. It’s been a busy week and an even busier weekend. We’ve had family photos, we had dinner parties, and I took a dance class for mom’s night out. I’ve run errands to just about everywhere. I’ve ordered a birthday cake for my daughter’s first birthday, which is coming up way faster than anyone told me it would. I’ve got sunburnt, and ate good gluten free food. I’ve written more things on my 30 Before 30 list.
Although life is going pretty amazing right now, I still have a chronic illness. More than one. Several. That means that occasionally— okay, frequently— I have to slow down and listen to my body.
Whether you have a chronic illness or not, it’s important to understand your body’s cues.
