Day 2 of my 21 day "detox" started off with a change of plans. I had decided I wanted to do 30 minutes in the sauna today. I came into work, did a few things, turned on the sauna to heat. I had literally JUST gotten in the sauna, when I got a calendar alert about a meeting being moved up an hour. CRAP. I feel so annoyed. But, I needed to take the call, so I got out of the sauna.
Once the meeting was over, I planned on doing the sauna. But, obviously, I would need a shower. We only have one shower (in the float room), and it was pre-booked, giving me just about 15 minutes to shower after the sauna.
All of these obstacles! Annoying! Truthfully, had I not being doing this "challenge," it was enough to convince me to give up on the whole idea until later in the day... which would have turned into the whole day of not getting around to it.
Instead, I just went for it. I could hurry. 15 minutes in the shower isn't impossible. I could do it! And I did!
I'm so glad I did the sauna today. I was GROSS. I've done the sauna plenty of times, and have come out hardly sweating (my lymph system is messed up sometimes). But not today! I was drenched as if I had jumped in a pool. I could wring out my shirt!
Also, I've been having tightness along the top of my back. Prime spot for liver to detox. While in the sauna, I could feel those muscles begin to loosen up, and I was able to crack my neck and back a few times. Much better!
Since I was so pressed for time, I did my video sans shower. :) It's only day 2, and already confronted with WHY self care can be hard to stick to.
