Even so, I refuse to be sick - I don't like being sick and after my two classes today, I spent time resting and trying to drink fluids.
What I do know, however, is that when I do get sick (which isn't often) my body is telling me that it needs to rest and rejuvenate. It's moments like these that I can really see my mindful practice at work.
I try to practice mindfulness everyday and with that practice, my sense of self-awareness grows. I continue to strive to be in-tune with my body and its needs. That is an awesome feeling.
Self-Awareness is just one wonderful outcome of practicing Mindfulness.
