When I first saw this scene with Robin Williams in the movie The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, I remember being irritated by it. They say you tend to be annoyed when you see in others the characteristics you don’t like in yourself. I later realized that I have that same attitude of wanting to be free of my body and all the accompanying things that require time and attention like sleeping and eating. Now that image of the king’s head flying around has come to represent my tendency to live in my head and forget about taking care of my body. Making sure I eat, planning to have healthy food available plus getting plenty of exercise and sleep are big challenges for me. However, I know how vital they all are to being healthy so I constantly try to find ways to keep them in my focus.
