One of the most challenging aspects of writing, for me, is the nonphysicalness of it.
I sit and think. I sit and write. I sit and brainstorm. I sit and read. My inner gears are smokin’ but the outer parts are pokin’. A day of scribbling – literally, I’m a paper-and-pen girl – means moving my fingers. Period. So while the digits get a nice workout, the rest of me doesn’t. Sure, exercise and walking counter that lack of movement, but I’m frequently left wanting more.
And one of my favorite ‘mores‘ is getting a Reiki treatment. Reiki originated in Japan and is a technique based on facilitating a person’s life force energy for healing and stress reduction. Lousy explanation, I know, but I’m really not trying to explain it. If you’re not familiar with Reiki and you’re interested, you’ll look it up.
I’m just saying I like it. A lot. It makes me feel balanced. Recharged. Life is too short to scribble unhappily. Find what recharges you and do more of it.
