Listen to your body.
I got cold yesterday. I don’t know why it happened, but something may not be working well in my immune system. I trust that signal and am taking a rest.
Our immune system is the greatest auto-pilot system. It takes care of everything while we don’t even know what is going on inside our body. It is one of the few things we can fully rely on in our entire life.
But we sometimes break down the system – by listening to what our brain says, not what our body indicates us.
Too busy. I have to go to work. I have many things to do. These self-talks force us not to take a rest even when our body tells us that something is wrong. And we get sick – sometimes get a fatal disease. That’s the consequence of ignoring the sign from our body.
Medication won’t help. It just paralyzes our body and enhances the destructive self-talks.
Of course we need to go to the doctor if we get really sick. But we can prevent it from happening by observing our body. It doesn’t speak, but shows us a lot.
