Three more weeks and I’ll be flying to Romania, seeing my mom and dad, playing with my dog, and just taking the time to breathe, relax and remember to enjoy life. Bought my ticket, did some shopping, started packing and I’m counting the days. I plan on resting as much as possible, needling my parents, meeting with friends, and just giving my brain a break so I can come back fresh and ready to work on my patients and learn some more.
Until then I still have six papers to finish, finals, clinic shifts, and one Apex training in Functional Endocrinology. I already registered for next trimester’s classes and my schedule is looking a bit better than this trimester: 7 classes with just one weekend plus 3 clinic shifts, meaning just 21 credits. Most of the classes are herbal ones, and I figure fewer classes are going to be better with all the herbal formulas that we have to memorize.
Everything is piling up and most of the time I end up turning in papers right before class, but I’m doing my best with all the things on my plate.
I was starting to feel a bit overwhelmed and getting headaches so I got some homeopathic remedies from the ND clinic. I also gave up on everything else so I can have time for 2 infrared sauna sessions per week, and I’ve got to say I love that sauna! Not only does it help detox your body, but I always feel so relaxed and almost fall asleep.
If you haven’t have a chance to try it yet, don’t miss it. I wish I had the time to do it three times per week and get the most benefit, but I still need my acupuncture session.
