Coming Off Facebook – Awareness, Discomfort, Freedom

Listen to Your Body

An interesting turn of events has happened which made me think quite a lot about my relationship with my body. I mentioned on my Facebook page that I’d had the idea that I could try skiing again. I started doing some training for it and was doing well increasing my exercises by a few each day. My
