A slap in the face
Wednesday, January 08, 2020
Today I went to see a cardiologist. I asked him if some degree of dehydration could cause very mild tachycardia, to which he explained that the rhythm of the heart depends more on your level of activity, whether you're a more active type or lead a sedentary lifestyle, and he said: "And you certainly don't look like someone who exercises at all."
That felt like a slap in the face honestly. I know I cut myself so much slack I barely even make an effort to get up and get moving, but it hurt to have it acknowledged in my face by a professional I'm meeting for the first time. This served me as motivation to start taking this more seriously and actually make it a priority to exercise.
