I chose the word suffering intentionally; reason being, I used to be of the mindset that suffering is “bad”. Now I am coming to the perspective that it is this very mindset that is blinding me to the wellness perspective. Now I am learning to stay with the experience, see it for what it really is and discover the message of wellness
I am grateful for my sciatica for it reminds me to maintain good posture and core strength through a Lumber Decompression Exercise that I discovered in my attempt to understand my leg dominant pain.
I am grateful for my hypertension for it reminds me to keep to the Eat Well Plate
A healthy diet includes at least 400 grams of vegetables and 2 servings of fruit per day, excluding potatoes, sweet potatoes, cassava and other starchy roots. (WHO Healthy Diet Fact Sheet)I am grateful for anxiety for it reminds me to accept those things I can not change and being mindful of those which I can by staying with each moment and proceed with kindness to myself and everyone else.
I am grateful for all my sufferings for they remind me that I am no different than my patients and through our group sharing I shall heal and experience wellness.
