It gave me quite a knock and I'm still hurting today for it, though not as bad as yesterday...thankfully! And I have now concluded my cat is a terrible dance partner! We both took the time yesterday to rest and sleep too, but what really helped was going for a walk outside. I brought along my music and I took my time...and it did take time! Slow and gentle I went...by the time I got to the mall, the stiffness was starting to loosen up and once home with the Robax, it was a little better still....the pain was worse...but the stiffness wasn't.
As much as I wanted to lay in bed and soothe my sore butt, back and shoulders, I had to move or I was only going to get stiffer. Have you ever noticed that? If you don't move around...your stiffness gets stiffer? Move it or lose it right? Well, it's true.
It hurts to move, I know it does, let's be honest, but if we don't keep moving and we baby our sore spots...we only get stiffer and then we hurt worse! And then we get stiffer again still! It's a cycle! and a nasty one at that.....So even on the days when you don't want to move...or you've danced with your cat too...be as gentle as you need you to be...but keep moving!! Just move a little slower till you're feeling better.
I'm still moving slow but I'm moving.
Have a great day and please take good care of you....I'm off to find a better dance partner ;)
