Signs the Mind Body Connection is Missing

Surprisingly, the mind and body disconnect every day.  We lose awareness, grow tired, and lose our sense of self the further and further mind and body separate.

Surprisingly, the mind and body become disconnected every day.  We lose awareness, grow tired, and lose our sense of self the further and further mind and body separate.  I go through on a monthly basis, everything time I work on a new play.  Suddenly, my life isn't my own.  Self-care goes by the wayside as my number one focus is the actors, their clothes, and the wardrobe crew.  My body grows tired, but my mind screams "soldier on!"  This leads to sleeplessness, poor eating, and a sadness I just can't quell.  

The True Cost of Health

What happens when this cost doesn't align with my lifestyle?

 Working for a non-profit has always aligned with my values, but my health costs don't align with my paycheck.  It's a catch-22.  Work more, to afford my health, sleep less and degrade my health.  

Either way, my checkbook and my body remain unbalanced.

I am far from alone in this vortex of health woes--our society has its priorities all wrong.  We eat on the go, valuing convenience over nutrition.  We skip out on check-ups, valuing the extra cash over a clean bill of health.  We opt for the quick fix, the band-aid of prescriptions that treat the symptoms because the cost of finding the root cause may be out of our budget.
