My relationship with health is often tenuous at best, and I have realised from being on holiday that I am actually capable of going out much more than I generally do when at home. Of course, this may just be psychosomatic and my body is giving me a bit of a break while I'm away on holiday, but I have realised (more than before) that attitude is often everything.
I have still been getting regular stomach pain, and occasional bouts of dizziness and the odd migraine symptom, but I feel so much more capable of just dealing with them. And I don't even have that many support tools here as I do back home. For example, I have been missing my heatpack like crazy while I've been here. The comfort of heat is something that I can't even begin to relate if you don't know what I'm talking about.
I also realised while being here that I MISS my eating habits from home. As much as it has been awesome eating many different and often wonderful foods here, I miss things like raw chocolate, green juices (although I've managed to find a couple of juices here) and gf df food. We go to the odd vegan place while here, but they're often super far away or a bit hidden (or expensive). Being here has renewed my drive for places like Byron Bay, where I could probably eat raw and healthy for every single meal.
I have also had time to observe how I react to certain situations. It can sometimes be really hard to take a step back and ask why you're reacting to something in a certain way, and I find that often when I question my reaction, it's not because I have some innate and deep-seated moral difference to the situation, but because of something much more basic, like the fact that I'm quite hungry and cold and would dearly like to sit down and eat something.
That's about all I wanted to say at this point. Have a couple of photos from our visit to Iga yesterday :)
