Take Time to Breathe
Monday, August 03, 2015
Breathing is automatic. You don't really think about doing it, it just happens. I didn't really value it until these past ten days when my breathing became kabored. I came down with a viral infection which went right to my chest. A week went by and instead of getting better I got worse. What was once an automatic response became a labored effort. I was diagnosed with bronchitis, asthma and the beginnings of pneumonia. No wonder I was having a hard time breathing. I was told that I probably would be dealing with asthma the rest of my life. Now something I took for granted has become something that I think about continually. I will be on an inhaler the rest of my life. This has made me realize how important my health is. Why I will get my weight off. I set a goal to exercise for 10 minutes 3 times a day until my breathing allows me to do more. So my friends take a deep breath and enjoy life.
