Finals started and that means this trimester is almost done. Before diving into studying, last weekend I flew for another training in Seattle.
With all the traveling and emotional turmoil that I have recently experienced, my body was starting to show signs of fatigue. I knew I had a bunch of finals and another 2 weeks of make-up shifts in the clinic during winter break, so I had to go back to taking my herbal tinctures, doing acupuncture on myself, and cooking nourishing foods.
Two weeks ago just before the first wave of exams, I was feeling a bit tired and realized it might be difficult for me to study and have good results with all that fatigue. My body didn’t seem to recover very well after all the traveling I did during the last month so I had two choices: finding the time to get acupuncture and hydro in the clinic, or just readjust my diet and allow my body to heal.
The time has come to start thinking about boards. I am not really feeling anxious or stressed. In fact, the closer I get to graduation, the less the stress. I know for some of us it can be the opposite and boards and graduation can bring on so much anxiety, but I’m happy to say that it’s not my case, at least not right now. I might get a bit anxious right before I take boards, but right now I feel I can only study and everything will be OK.
