Worry Not

If you feel a little worried
Anxious or plain upset
Remember that there are better things
To come your way just yet
And take the time to dream a bit
Consider where you’ll be
In times ahead without this stress
And pure anxiety

Take a walk or do some exercise
To pacify your mind
Breathing in deep to saturate
Yourself with air; unwind
And sleep a little more as well
Eat healthy snacks and meals
Spend time with friends who make you laugh
Do things that chill the deal

But over all these matters just
Be true to you each mile
Inspire yourself and turn your face
From worried to a smile
And step ahead with faith and trust
That you can be happy
Allowing good to flood right in
And wipe out your worry

Don't Worry

Workout Wobbles

The lure of the duvet
The weight of your legs
When the gym comes a calling
Or swimming pool begs
And any old reason
Just pops in your head
To sleep a bit longer
And stay in your bed!

Yet lash out at temptation
Resist any urge
To languor and linger
Let its will not be heard
Nor conceded to; obeyed
For the longer you stay
Under cover the harder
You’ll find that workout today!

So put your mind to it
Jump up and resolve
To beat any decoys
That simply don’t solve
The matter before you
The need to get fit
And with it more healthy
Be strong and don’t quit!!!!

Oh and note to self – maybe don’t use writing a poem about it as an excuse not to go! 🙂

C2H5OH (Alcohol)

C2H5OH
A boozy little code
That wipes the mind; addles the brain
And puts each in the mode
Of wanton self destruction
When taken in excess
Wrecking the liver, heart and more
To cause in-toxic stress
That leaves one feeling sick
Hungover; out of sorts
From mixing up these elements
As wine or gin or port
Or vodka, beer or cider
However it might flow
So maybe it is sometimes best
To stick to H2O!

Adrenaline Junkie

Adrenaline junkie
Always on the go
Addicted to the rush
Of never saying no
Extending the risk
Pushing further and more
Shooting up on adrenaline
Exhilaration galore
For fear that some downtime
Will limit the stress
Where in essence the fact is
That more should be less!

Hormones

There’s something unique about hormones
Those molecules we can’t control
That pace through our blood with a vengeance
Like marshals about on patrol
On missions to regulate systems
To alter; to change and effect
Chit-chatting ‘tween tissues and organs
Whilst keeping all else just in check
And whilst bringing about homeostasis
They pop up adapting the way
That we think, act and be; so hormonally
In a signal parade every day

Google Neuropathy

Bewary of the internet
As diagnostic tool
For it will kill you over cure
And can be rather cruel
Insinuating that you’ve got
A real fatality
When in essence you might just have
‘Google neuropathy’

With Love From The Common Cold

If I am common, who is not?
Said Common Cold one day
For seriously! How can you think
I am a “chav” per se

I mean whoever thought I’d wear
Designer labels too
Perhaps a tag more eloquent
Say – one that says I’m flu

For in all truth I might appear
In many different folk
But common? Come on! Have a heart
I am a decent bloke!

I work real hard to make you sick
I spread throughout your head
I itch your eyes, block up your nose
And flush your cheeks all red

And then I don’t stop there at all
I stuff your ears with goo
And if you’re really lucky then
I’ll hit your stomach too

I persevere with diligence
With might and with great power
So please don’t put me in a box
For I work hour on hour

And so I think it’s fair to say
That I am most detached
From common for my ways are good
My virus I attach

To spend my days a weaving here
And working at great heights
To be all gunky in your head
My future’s looking bright!

     With love from your common cold x

Heart Healthy

Have you looked at the environment
To see if it can be
Altered in any kind of way
To be more heart healthy

A place that will encourage growth
A setting where the heart
Is given chance to optimise
In fine fettle to start

And where all opportunities
Inspire good choices too
To help create more healthiness
With well-being for you

And if you think a shift’s required
Will you step up and see
What you can do to challenge where
These changes need to be.

29th September every year is World Heart Day focusing on creating heart healthy environments.

Nemesis

You think you are my nemesis
You think you will undo
My mind, my heart, my will, my life
But believe me that ain’t true
Cos I choose who I listen to
I choose how I will be
And beat the bastards, every time
Not fall but choose for free
To focus with a pure intent
Just so invincible
You think you are my nemesis
But just on principle

YOU’RE NOT!

Anyone dealing with a disability and life’s daily routines might resonate with this! In my case it’s not being beat by exams with poor health! Onwards and upwards – as they say! 🙂

 

Rethread Our Heads

Lets rethread our heads
Unwind our minds
Through neural corridors
Potentially with active might
Synaptic strength and more
Controlling what we think and do
Project or indeed say
The way we rock to innervate
Our outcomes every day
