Happy New Year and “Resolutions” for my Migraines and Health
Welcome to 2017!!! My son spent Christmas with the flu and I spent New Year’s Eve and New Year Day the same way. Ugh. Happy New Year. We have all recovered, I’ve sterilized my house and I’m ready to move on.
Do you believe in resolutions? I looked up what a resolution is and found a few definitions. The one that struck me was, “the action of solving a problem, dispute, or contentious matter….the disappearance of inflammation, or of any other symptom or condition.” (according to my Siri dictionary)
In the past few months I have been investigating my health a bit more with different doctors and therapies. With this, I believe inflammation is a major problem as far as migraine trigger, intensity, frequency, and longevity. This year I’m hoping to reduce my inflammation. I’ll post about my new doctors and discoveries soon!
This year, I will be looking more closely at my diet and ways to calm my body. For the next few weeks, I hope to inspire you and motivate myself to eat less inflammatory foods and do more gentle exercises that make my body feel good. I’m not looking at calories, I’m not looking at weight loss, I’m not looking at intense crazy workouts. I’m talking about being gentle on myself and making me feel better!!!! The looks would be an added bonus, the goal is better health.
If you have recipes, workouts that make you feel good, or ways to decrease inflammation, I’d love to hear. If you have apps you love, programs you follow, or products you recommend, I’d love to look at those also. This year is about working together, taking advice and making it mine, and having some accountability to what I’m putting in my body, on my body, and how I’m moving my body.
Make my blog your support. Teamwork! Try what I’m trying, comment on what you are doing and check in. We can do this. I want 2017 to be the year I learned something new about myself and made it better!
