More than Managing

 Fruity Herbal Iced Tea Recipe 

Strawberry Infused Tea

Topic:  Something difficult about your “lot in life” and how you’re working to overcome it

I’ve had some health challenges the past few years.  I list them only for the purpose of education just in case someone needs to connect – Interstitial Cystitis, Severe Sleep Apnea and Shingles twice within a few months of each other which has left me with a neuropathy where the nerves were affected.  

Okay enough of that – This is how I manage it:

My faith in God – I trust Him with my days and nights

Search out a team of health providers to partner with me

Listen to the language of my body – move on most days and know when it is time to rest

Take time for the little moments of sweetness – a glass of  iced herbal tea, baby’s giggle, watch a sunset or sunrise, etc.

Consistent exercise program (cardio, strength training, swimming and yoga)

Good nutrition – on most days

Choose to deposit more positive than negative in my life 

Choose not to let pain define me

Family time


Working on projects I am passionate about

Do you have some tips on managing the challenges in life?  We learn a lot from sharing with each other.
