I have a history of getting sick but for only short times, especially if I’m doing something important. Somehow my body knows how to process the stress quickly.

I try to eat well, I make sure I drink lots of water, and always get lots of sleep. I enjoy my boozy beverages, but always make sure to keep it reasonable.

I also do emotional/ mental energy work and visualizations to further speed the healing process.

I expect that once I arrive in San Andres Itzapa and their Feria is over, I’ll lie down for a while and get some kind of longer cold.

Which is fine. Sometimes you learn the most when you process feeling like crap and it turns back into feeling good again …
