April 6th…A Type A friend of mine was experiencing severe exhaustion. She described to me how she did not have the energy to work out anymore. After asking her a few questions about her work out, I found out that she jogged for 20 minutes and did the stair climber for another 20 minutes and she does this 5 days straight every week at lunch time. She went on this exercise regiment to loose some weight (2 weeks into it and no weight lose). She also complained about not sleeping very well. A typical type A with too much cortisol. Her job at work is stressful enough for her. I suggested she should relax more and cut back on the strenuous exercise and take up yoga or Tai Chi. All I got was a chuckle and an ‘are you serious?’
April 7th (her horoscope reads)…There is going to be so much to get done today that you might feel a little daunted in getting started. By mid-day, you could even find yourself downright overwhelmed. Take a break, xxxx. Take a long lunch on an outside terrace, weather permitting. Breathe deeply until the stress subsides. You may need to concentrate on finishing only one or two minor tasks today, and put the rest off until tomorrow. Remember, too much stress can take its toll on your health!
April 8th…. My friend took the day off and went to a spa for a long 1.5-hr massage with a facial, manicure and pedicure.
It’s incredible how a trivial horoscope can give credibility to sound blood type health advice.
