If your body told you what She needs would you listen? Would you pay attention? Would you actually do what She is asking for or would you override Her because you know better?
My main goal every day is to be nice to my body. Do I always succeed? Hell no! I fail probably most days, but I keep trying.
I didn’t sleep well last night and this morning I was tired, cranky and craving another cup of tea, but instead I slowed down and listened. Was another cup of tea really what I wanted? I wanted to feel rested and energized so I took myself back to bed for a short nap. I woke up refreshed, fired up and ready to work. And I just realised I still haven’t had that second cup of tea. This to me is showing my body that I love her, it’s putting her ahead of my to do list and “shoulds”.
I know it is not always practical to have a nap (although I really don’t know why the bosses aren’t more understanding!), but what are some ways you can show your body you love her? Do you listen when your body tells you what it needs?
Is it time for you to reclaim your body?
Here are some examples of what your body might be asking for rather than another cup of coffee or a piece of chocolate cake:
- Receiving or giving touch
- Body care
- Wearing attractive clothes
- Finding beauty when looking in the mirror
- Being in nature
- Reciveibg from others
- Buying gifts for yourself
