Have you ever been angry at your body?
Have you ever wished it would just play nice?
Have you ever blamed your body for the pain you’re feeling, the discomfort, the tension, anxiety or injury you just can’t seem to heal?
Well I have a confronting question for you:
WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR YOUR BODY?
I ask this lovingly and fiercely 🙂 xo
Hey I went through YEARS of blaming my body, hating my body, wishing my body would conform to my desires and stop pissing me off with pain and discomfort.
The truth is, your body is on your side!
Your body is trying to HELP you.
Your body’s job is to alert you when you’re in danger. That means pain, discomfort, tension, and all kinds of unpleasant sensations.
Your job is to take care of your body.
Your job is to get to know your body so well you know what it needs to thrive in your relationship of life together…not at all unlike a romantic partnership!
You’re asking a lot of your body every day – whether you’re a desk jockey or professional athlete. Not moving is stressful on your body. Moving a lot without addressing your internal health (fascia/muscles/bones/nervous system) is stressful for your body.
If you want a healthy partnership with your body, learn to welcome all of its communications with you, including pain.
Be willing to take responsibility for your part in creating the pain you’re feeling. And then take steps to address it.
With diligence and commitment you can have a vibrant, trusting relationship with your body and adventure through life with confidence, unafraid of pain because you know what it means and how to take care of it.
There are many resources right here on this channel or blog that will help you take care of your body.
