Nell Part 5

I like my little border collie dog, Nell. No, I love her. She teaches me a lot about life.

For example, when Nell gets tired, she sleeps. When she’s thirsty, she drinks. She is in touch with, and responsive to, her needs.

Do you know what doctors tell us? That most of us do not get enough rest. We walk around with sleep debts, like zombies.

And they tell us we do not drink enough water. We drink caffeinated soft-drinks with sugar or sugar substitutes, while our bodies are dehydrated.

Let me give you a test: Do you get at least eight hours of sleep per night? Do you drink at least eight large glasses of water per day?

Learn from the border collie pup: Be aware of, and responsive to, your own needs.

  1. Just read the Nell series. I especially liked the one about the dead bird. I have had a hard time letting go of things in the past. I could not even determine if some of the things were good or bad for me. I just new I wanted things to change. It is simple enough to find something better.
