Why rest is important when you’re tired?
Last Friday I had a scary experience. I was working as always, all of a sudden I got dizzy. I thought it will past so I didn’t pay attention but later on when I was bending to get a bottle of water I was feeling again dizzy and also a heavy sensation on my head. I told a friend and she told me, please go home. Another friend saw me she said Hilda go to see the nurse. She went with me.I asked her, because I was afraid to past out on my way to the nurse office.
The nurse saw me and she found my blood pressure a little higher, usually mine is always perfect. It surprised me and she recommended to not go back to work and see my doctor right away.
I coud’nt believe my blood pressure was high. Me never! I always presume to be heathy.
I ended up having many test and the recommendation to take it easy and stop working until I got the Results.
I wanted to go to the botton of this because I know is more than the symptoms. what is causing this?
I know Stress is one of them. usually I don’t have stress at home, I’m blessed to have a great family and do what I love .
Stress its bad for us even if is for just a few moments it can raise our blood pressure, but when it happens every day it will make a mess with our blood pressure and cause our heart rate go faster.
For Stress great alternatives are:
-Sleep * Bed time schedule
-Organize* organization offer a natural sense of control and peace of mind.
Not having enough sleep is not good for our body, I was having 3 to 4 hours of sleep lately because at night time I got to involved on what I love it , Even if I was napping in the afternoon , it wasn’t the same that having a good great 7 to 8 hours sleep at night time.
Did I know that ?
I did but I thought just eating healthy will help and it does but you need the 7 to 8 hours of sleep at least to recovery the energy you loose in the day.
Being off from work is very unusual for me, I don’t usually have this time off until now.
I rested all day yesterday. I watched TV after many months. I almost forget what TV is.
I have great news my blood test results were okay, now Waiting on my appointment for my stress test.
I can’t drink coffee for now, which really hard because I love my morning coffee. This is my second day.
I’m using Cafit which is a powder drink that taste like coffee.
What I learned from this experience is to be more careful with my body, to rest more often, to be more organize, I don’t have to do many things at the same time.
I have to choose by priorities.
A good amount of sleep is very important and at the right time. Night times are for this.
I know I want to learn everything but I should pause when I need it. Also not to let stress from another people afected me. We can not change them but we can change the way we react.
I can resume this in a phase, I will do anything I dream, but first I need to take care of my body as the tool for everything.
Nothing is more precious that a healthy body and clear mind.
