Finishing this house…I became chief “step & fetch it” person. Toting heavy things up & down uneven ground. I did not listen to my body…& my feet were talking the loudest. In short, I gave my right foot a neuroma. My first response was to “baby” it, but when I did it became worse.
It was then I realized that only conscious movement would make this better. So I began my yoga again…movement helped.
Then, I realized my mind was not helping things. Focusing on pain-only makes pain stronger in one’s mind. This weakens the body.
Focus on healing…well heals.
A simple breath exercise…imagining taking the breath in through the toes-up to the knees & back down…has helped tremendously.
Kind of like out with the bad air in with the good….
Really quite silly…..but effective.
