There is a big difference between living in your body, and living with your body.
Your body is not a cage. Not something to escape and run away from. If we treat ourselves badly though, it will feel like a prison.
Your body is your best friend. Treat it well, it will be with you for your whole life. Treat it as you would treat others. And how should we treat others? As we would like to be treated, ofcourse…. Treat yourself well, and your body will transform from a prison to a paradise.
Take the time to listen, to notice how we move, how we feel in different situations.
Most importantly, know that your body is unlike anyone else’s. Ever. It needs different things than other bodies need – it is supposed to look different to everyone else’s. The world would be a pretty boring place if we all looked the same wouldn’t it?….
Find what works for your body. Fill it with good things, move it the way it likes to move. Do the things you truly enjoy, let your self know you are good enough.
