Thank God For Pool Therapy
I’ve been feeling so much better since I got in the pool this afternoon. Being in there cooled and comforted my body so much. No doubting that it lowers my feelings of inflammation. The exercise calms my anxiety and nerve pain. I’m so glad the warmer weather affords me this opportunity.
I will be seeking to swim daily whether early morning or early evening. My body desperately needs the exercise. I’ve not been doing any daily intentional exercise or physical therapy for months. Of course, I used to walk often but it seems forever ago. For so long walking a few miles per day was like water to my body and soul. Then, after I stopped walking my body struggled to get back on track.
Still been watching my diet very closely. I’ve maintained an ideal body weight of 180 pounds for almost 5 months. I limit daily my caffeine and sugar intake. Why? Because either of these things have proven to increase my inflammation and nerve pain. Adding daily pool therapy to other disciplines is going to be a huge help for my condition. Overall this has been a great day since I got out the bed. Often getting up is my biggest and toughest step once my body gets knocked down.
