And today was one of those days. I didn’t sleep well last night — woke about 1:30 am, and then again at 3:00, and woke with a headache this morning. The tai chi has actually dispelled most of the headache, and the rest of it is waning rapidly. But the day, as they say, “did not begin well.” Yesterday I was exhausted and ready to sleep about 9:00 pm… but then to not sleep well was difficult.
So it goes. I got up, and I did tai chi anyway. And I felt better for doing it. Not great. Not 100% But better.
Sometimes this is all you can expect out of a routine practice — that when you’re feeling bad, it will make you feel better. Not all the way healthy, but better. And sometimes that has to be enough.
