Part of aging gracefully – (ha ha!) – is discovering that your digestion changes. Yesterday started out great. I was super productive yet even took time to enjoy a fairly leisurely lunch on our balcony in the sun. For dessert I had some cherries. Twelve, to be exact. About an hour later, though, I felt like I’d swallowed a beach ball. Which leads me to conclude that life’s a bowl of cherries only if you can digest them!
Unfortunately, my bloating persisted into the evening. So I consulted Dr. Google for remedies and decided to try the following:
Exercising (Since I’d already exercised earlier in the day I went for a brisk walk around the block instead.)
Peppermint (which I took in the form of this tea.)
I’m happy to report that the the Stomach Ease tea made a difference almost immediately. Keeping my sense of humor about my beach ball belly also helped.
life’s a bowl of cherries life is nothing if not a balancing act…
