It’s been getting colder hereabouts, and when it gets colder, my knees, which have seen a lot of living, start to ache more and even hurt. Given that my life is lived in motion most parts of the year and especially in the holiday season, painful knees and the associated limp are not what I want to be dealing with, especially when I’ve got people to see, places to go and things to do.

So, anyway, I was limping along on my daily rounds the other day and the pain and the crankiness in my knees got worse and worse until I finally had to stop, sit down and take a break.

And as I was sitting there, waiting for things to get more manageable so I could move on again, I started thinking.

I thought”Hey, I know that affirmations have helped in the past to ease pain for me. Haven’t done that for awhile.”

I thought “Hey, I know  acupressure to relive knee pain and make them stronger. Haven’t done that for awhile.”

I thought “I know Reiki too and that can do wonderful things to help my body heal. Haven’t done that for awhile.”

Well, duh.

I had the tools I needed to support my body and feel better. I knew what I needed to do to take care of myself, and I was so busy that I didn’t do it.

That ever happen to you?

So, I did my affirmations and I did my acupressure and I added in my Reiki, and, when I stood up again, 95% of the pain was gone and I was walking much better.

and there’s the two clues

It’s not enough to know how to do something- if you want to benefit from that knowledge, you have to use it,

So what do you know that you need to do to take care of yourself?
