Work has been crazy lately. I’ve been working long hours and it seems as though it’s been non-stop for months. In thinking about it in more detail, I honestly haven’t slowed down since November 2013. I’m really hoping that after this cycle the long hours will lessen.
I started working on an art journal and I added a photography class to my list. And you would think that this is just adding on to my work. It might actually be adding work. But, the art journal and focusing on things that I like or enjoy, almost makes it feel as though it’s not work. It’s more relaxing. I find myself not thinking about the stresses and allow myself to take my focus elsewhere. Which helps a great deal.
I have a stabilized decoction and a salve to make over the weekend. My eye started to develop eczema. So, I’ll be making a salve to help with that issue. The decoction is to continue my allergy treatment. I’m working with my nutritionist / master herbalist on my congestion. In conjunction with my allergist. This right now is priority for my health. Progress has been really good. But, I still have a lot to work through. I definitely wasn’t expecting that I would feel any relief from the congestion, especially considering how long I’ve dealt with my allergies and asthma. I knew it would take sometime and wasn’t expecting quick results. But, after a week, my congestion started to go away. I am still congested, just not as bad. It took about 3 years to get myself better with asthma and allergies in general, I know this too will take some time. I’m in no rush. My body is healing.
