The mind has tremendous power over the body – that’s what I keep learning
It’s 3 : 08 PM on day 767 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to stretch my hamstrings, brush my teeth, feed myself an avocado sandwich and egg for breakfast, work, publish my Disability of the Day feature, practice typing with both hands, practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles and watch TV.
Today I had trouble stretching my right hamstring the way I usually did so I tried something different I closed my eyes, relaxed my whole body, inhaled and exhaled a couple of times and visualized my right leg fully stretched on the bed when I opened my eyes I kid you not my right leg was flat on the bed just like I pictured it there’s something to this mind-body connection thing everybody keeps talking about maybe I should combine western therapies with things people do in the east and see if that works for me. Have you used the power of the mind to get where you want to be health wise?
