What your shoes may say about you…..

Well, it had to happen.


I went to work this week with the wrong colored shoes.  I had picked out a pair of black slacks with a pretty red and black geometric patterned blouse.  I always feel great in red.  Things have been tough at my house lately, and while I would not consider myself depressed, I certainly do everything I can to bring a little sunshine in my life on a daily basis.   With all the things that I have no power to change, I can decide to dress myself in colors that make me happy.  Or so I thought…..


Imagine my surprise on Thursday morning, when I stepped out of my vehicle, and noticed that while I had actually put on the clothes that I had picked out, I had totally stepped into the wrong pair of sandals.  Expecting to see my black pair, I was quite dismayed to see my peach pair.


How did that happen, I asked myself with incredulity?  I had absolutely no intention of wearing peach pumps.  I had absent-mindedly stepped into the wrong pair of shoes that morning.


What does that say about my state of mind?  What does that portend for my health in the days to come?  The experts say that 85% of sickness and disease is rooted in the emotions.  This means that stress, (of which there has been plenty in my circle) seriously affects the immune system.   Fortunately, I know this, and I have the opportunity to take a mini-break, dial down, and reassess.


What about you?   I know that stress is not my own particular purview:  it affects us all.  Are you aware that unrelenting stress and severely impact your immune system?  Think about it, research it, change it.


I am off to the coast today…. Getting some fresh air, sea breeze and clearer head.  Any one need to join me?


Until next time,

    If that is true about the 85%, that is actually excellent news. Can you link to a study or some of the experts who have studied and shown this? Thanks
