Do We Live to Work, or Work to Live?

Do We Live to Work, or Work to Live?

At the moment, I keep getting cyclically unwell. Recently I have had two colds a month after each other. I have had two bouts of thrush and cystitis and this has made me pause and take time off work. This simply isn’t how I want to live my life and I know I made it better before and I can make it better again by returning to Ayurvedic living.

In 2022, I started my Ayurvedic diploma and it was a real eye-opener. I started living better more in tune with nature. And then life got in the way and things started to speed up and I was no longer taking care of myself.

I was putting work ahead of my health, which has now made me put my health ahead of my work. Me and my husband often say, ‘do we live to work or do we work to live?’, and this keeps going round and round in my mind.

It feels very different when your work is of service to others, but if you don’t take care of yourself, you cannot be that support. I often encourage people to live more in tune with nature and to live a healthier lifestyle and sometimes I forget to walk the walk myself and I am determined this is going to change.

This past year, my puppy dog has been diagnosed with juvenile chronic kidney disease and I have known deep inside my stomach that nutrition and ancient ways of healing are the way to go for her, to support her in the best way I possibly can and that falls in line with my beliefs for people. She has westernised clinical intervention when it is needed and they work hard rather than fighting each other and through this she has moved from stage four back to stage three in her kidney disease.

There are some powerful teachings right there.

I am now three months, alcohol free. I have made a longer period in the past, but I’ve had little hiccoughs, little relapses and I believe that’s what has happened with my Ayurveda. I am in no way stating that I have got it perfect I will never have it perfect, nor would I wish to have it perfect. I am learning and developing all the time and I wish to share this with all of you so that we can support each other in living a long happy, healthy life.

What are your thoughts?
