Journal: 3/5/14

Insomnia struck again last night, so I turned off all of my alarms and just let my body sleep as long as it needed. It means no real work will get done today, but I feel much better. I woke up with just enough time to stretch, eat, shower, write, and go to my weekly massage therapy appointment. Massage therapy is one of the key things I do for my health that enables me to live as normal a life as possible. It is painful, and sometimes I’m sore for a day or two, but it is totally worth it.

Stretching is definitely helpful in maintaining the benefits of my massage therapy throughout the week. Plus, I always feel better afterwards, so I do it every morning that I can. If you’re curious, here is the video that I use:
