Our bodies want to help us stay healthy. They have a lot to say and are a wealth of information. We get busy, life is loud and we miss the subtle tones of our body trying to get our attention.

Atrocious behavior from players participating in the FIFA World Cup has made watching the games both unpleasant and frustrating. I’m shocked at the blatant, aggressive tactics used by some of the teams. It’s like watching “big time wrestling” on a football (soccer) field.

I was listening to a friend of mine the other day as she was sharing her story about being in a very traumatic car accident many years ago. She said it took a lot of physical therapy and hard work to fully recover. However, she recalled the panic she felt being trapped in the car, waiting for rescuers to free her and how this panic feeling is still with her today.
