Finding a balance – body and mind

All the pieces fit together. Steady… steady…

Work has been pretty busy, lately.

Fortunately, a lot of my coworkers are out for the week, since their kids are out of school for “spring break” right now.

And in another month, a lot of others will be out, as their kids take their spring break.

So, this is giving me a chance to catch up with myself, which is good.

It’s also giving me a chance to catch up with my exercise, which has lagged over the winter months.

I’ve been working so much, sitting stationary, that I’m really feeling it. I have a stand-up desk at work, but I haven’t been using it as much as I should. Gotta change that.

And so I shall.

Add some more exercise to my daily routine. There’s a stairwell just around the corner from where I sit. I can step away every couple of hours to go up and down the stairs. It won’t take much, but it can pay off with great benefits.

I’ve been riding my bike longer in the morning, and already I feel like I have more energy.

Just gotta get my sleep together… which is always a challenge.

But it’s progressing. It’s all progressing.

I am a long-term multiple (mild) Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI or TBI) survivor who experienced assaults, falls, car accidents, sports-related injuries in the 1960s, '70s, '80s, and '90s. My last mild TBI was in 2004, but it was definitely the worst of the lot. I never received medical treatment for my injuries, some of which were sports injuries (and you have to get back in the game!), but I have been living very successfully with cognitive/behavioral (social, emotional, functional) symptoms and complications since I was a young kid. I’ve done it so well, in fact, that virtually nobody knows that I sustained those injuries… and the folks who do know, haven’t fully realized just how it’s impacted my life. It has impacted my life, however. In serious and debilitating ways. I’m coming out from behind the shields I’ve put up, in hopes of successfully addressing my own (invisible) challenges and helping others to see that sustaining a TBI is not the end of the world, and they can, in fact, live happy, fulfilled, productive lives in spite of it all.
