IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
We ourselves contribute to slowing down our recovery. Our never-ending responsibilities add to an additional layer of stress while we fight our illness, and our negative reactions compound our physical ailments.
Moment-to-moment awareness and a non-judgemental state of consciousness do not come intuitively while being unwell, as the mind tries to distract itself from the illness.
Seeing one’s own illness with compassion and care leads to acceptance and aids recovery.
We should not be anxious or resentful about being sick, as the added worry is not doing the body any good.
