Daily Draw: Mercury Rising and Spider

By the end of yesterday, I was determined to make today “Have A Donut” Day. I was tired and overwhelmed, and I tend to be an emotional eater. #shock #norly But today’s draw is saying, “No no, children, we mustn’t do that. We know better and must do better for ourselves.” We live in these meat-suits for as long as we’re here, and we need them in order to survive. We have to take care of ourselves, meaning eating well, getting some form of movement in (whether you’re able to run miles and miles or you’re like me and just doing stretching and gentle movements to keep the blood flowing), and turning off the electronics 30-60 minutes before bed to help your mind unplug before sleep. And water. Drink lots and lots of water. We all know these things — they’re inherent wisdom that we connect with intuitively because we’re wired for survival on a basic level and our bodies know what to do. We just have to get the Brain out of the way. It’s also important to engage in safety behavior out in the world: drive carefully, watch the weather, pay attention to what you’re doing as much as you can (that is to say, please put the phones down when you’re walking around and for god’s sake don’t text and drive), and pay attention to that little inner voice that’s trying like mad to help you heal.
