Love Your Body.
2021 is the year for self love. If you’re reading this; let this be a sign to you… love your body!
Once I stopped looking at my body as something that needed to be changed, I started treating my body as something that should be treasured. I started to treat my body with respect. I had gained a beautiful new outlook on life. My fitness journey was no longer a burden but a journey to be healthy and strong. I began to treasure each moment, and with each moment I became more and more present. My body and I were going through this journey together.
My soul connected to my body. With each step that I would take, my legs let me move freely to get me to new destinations. My eyes helped me see so many beautiful waterfalls, mountains, trees, etc. Everything that I experienced in my body – I felt and connected to it within my soul.
You would’t judge others for the way their body looks, so why are you judging yourself?
Your Body is a Family.
Your brain is a control center. It connects to our nervous system which allows us to function our body and become aware of all of our senses. Our brain keeps all of our memories stored away until we need them. Our brains are creative and smart. We are able to learn about things that are good for us and help us survive. Our brains help us to be able to connect with others and share how we are feeling. We release hormones that are responsible for things like growth, metabolism, fertility, etc. Our brain connects to our third eye which helps us connect to our spiritual side.
We have our skin which helps us to sweat toxins out of our body and can regulate our body temperature. Our skin lets us feel the touch of our loved ones and the warm feeling of the sun kissing our skin. Without skin, we wouldn’t be able to feel our feet touch the earth. Plus, without skin, we would look pretty freaky. No matter what color your skin is, it does the same thing as everyone else’s skin so let your beauty shine through.
But what is beneath our skin is truly amazing. We have a whole body of cells and organs that fight to keep us alive. Your blood is constantly flowing through your veins the way water flows down a stream. We have cells in our body that literally fight to keep us from getting sick. We have a whole system that helps us digest our food. All we have to do is eat and our body takes care of the rest. Sometimes when something in our body may not be working correctly, the others help to fight just to keep us alive.
There are so many other things in your body that are working so hard to keep YOU alive; so YOU can live. Being alive is a beautiful gift.
Something I’d like to add is that I believe a lot of our insecurities come from society. Getting bullied because of the way you look causes people to become scared to be different. There is no such thing as a perfect body. This is only a thing because we let others make us believe this is true. If no one compared their bodies to another, maybe we wouldn’t have these insecurities.
Yes there are healthy and unhealthy bodies. But this is within us. Just because someone is over weight doesn’t mean they’re unhealthy. It’s the same as if someone was underweight; this doesn’t mean they are healthy. Being healthy is a means of treating youself right and taking care of your body. Healthy bodies don’t have a specific “look”.
When I look at others I see beauty. Everything in life is so beautiful and precious and we need to love everyone and accept that being unique is so important. There’s no one else like you. You can inspire so many people just by being youself.
As long as you are taking care of yourself and becoming the healthiest version of yourself. This is the most beautiful thing.
Thank Your Body
Your body is constantly fighting to keep you alive. Thank it every day and help it fight by correctly nourishing it with all of the essential nutrients to prevent sickness. Exercise to become healthier and stronger. Stretch to focus on using and feeling every muscle and become mindful of them. Always thank your muscles and let them thank you back by making you stronger and making you feel amazing.
When we are sick, we often blame our bodies for the way we feel. We can sometimes forget that our cells are being attacked. Your body is doing everything it can to keep you alive. Look at your body and thank it for getting you this far in life. Every part of this journey your body has been with you. It will continue to fight for you each and every day.
Our bodies connect us to our souls. Without our body, we wouldn’t be living this human experience.
Never forget to love your body. But also, never forget to love yourself!
You wouldn’t judge someone else because of how they look, so why are you judging yourself?
