The balance of life

Today, I under­stand some­thing important.

When you give too much to your work, you will lose some­thing in return.

I’m say­ing this because I’m sick. I don’t mean I’m sick of work or what but lit­er­ary and phys­i­cally I’m sick. Haven’t been feel­ing that well since the day before Labour Day.

I believe it is because of long work­ing hours, exces­sive use of brain, not enough sleep and lack of exer­cise which caused my immune sys­tem to drop to a dan­ger­ous level and at the end hav­ing a fever.

I know it’s a good thing because my body is fight­ing the virus and it tries to give me a hint by mak­ing me fever. Who­ever that invented this hint­ing mech­a­nism surely never had fever before. If I were to put in-charge of design­ing this whole mech­a­nism thing, I will put a traffic-light-liked indi­ca­tor maybe at some less obvi­ous places for exam­ple under the feet. Green shows a healthy body while yel­low means beware and red means dan­ger­ous. Like that no one ever have to surfer anymore.

Okay back to the topic. I have been tak­ing tons of Chi­nese med­i­cines since the day I felt some­thing is not right. I don’t like to take west­ern med­i­cines because I don’t think it’s a good idea to let the antibi­otic kills the viruses for me. I don’t know why but I just don’t like it. And the only rea­son I will go to the clinic is for the med­ical cer­tifi­cate (MC). Frankly, I will throw away the pre­scrip­tions the doc­tor gave me and I will go and get myself some Chi­nese med­i­cines instead.

And what do all these have to do with bal­ance? Noth­ing much related actu­ally. It’s just that when I’m sick, I lose all the good­nesses in life and men­tally become unbalance.

I can’t fully taste the sushi at Sakae Sushi last Wednesday.

I can’t fully taste the ice cream fon­due at Hagen Daze last Thursday.

And the worst part is, just now I have to reject my friends to go shop­ping, movies, din­ner and clubbin!!!

The morale of the story is, don’t fall sick dur­ing week­end and pub­lic hol­i­day. A healthy body is far more impor­tant than any­thing else.

Thanks for your con­cern. I’m not that sick actu­ally. Still can walk around and blogging.

Rest­ing at home is the worst part of falling sick. Have to do more excer­cise soon.

You take care too… espe­cially your ear.

west­ern med­i­cines is help you to recover in a short time but it pos­si­ble will fac­ing same prob­lem again, Chi­nese med­i­cines is using long time because it tune back your body and make your body more strong, so i also like chi­nese medicines… ^^
