It’s Not Normal To Be Happy All The Time

That long COVID night…

I’ve been thinking: This is what the living do.

Questions To Empower You On Your Health Journey

It’s our mobility, our energy levels, our vitality when we get out of bed in the morning, our capacity to respond to stress, our ability to fall asleep and stay asleep each night. It’s how our body reacts to foods, smells, chemicals, mould. It’s our immune systems and our sensitivities. It is teeth and bones and muscles and gut and fertility and skin and eyes and ears and so many moving parts. Moving parts we usually only notice when they aren’t working so well all of a sudden.
