Some pics of my gorgeous afternoon walk the other day. I don’t ever remember taking my dogs out in the winter before. So grateful for days like these.
I often found myself thinking of my body as an insidious liar that is not to be trusted. But I’ve started to tell myself daily that my body is my only permanent home during my time alive. Recently, I am very much into learning about having a healthy relationship with my body and I’ve decided to share some of the things I’ve learned:
· Become your body’s best friend and touch yourself gently. Rather than slapping on moisturiser, rub it on delicately, feeling your skin and enjoying it. Start massaging your stomach and hips in the morning to ease yourself into the day with gentleness. Try breathing into your stomach to remind yourself of the staggering things going on on the inside to keep you alive.
· Listen to your body. Listen to what your body is telling you. Does it need more food? Does it want warm food? Does it crave more of something? Equally, do you need to stretch your legs? Or have a lie-down? Tune in, and the body is less likely to seem confusing.
