How good are you at listening to your body?
If you're like most people in our culture you didn’t get much help with that growing up.
In fact you may have gotten the messages - directly or subtly - that listening to your body was a waste of time or lazy or indulgent or pointless or even dangerous and sinful.
I learned the hard way- after ignoring my body’s messages led to a serious immune system crash - the importance of listening to my body.
Learning to respond lovingly and intelligently to my body’s wisdom has dramatically improved every area of my life and is a key element I use to help clients create vibrant health, joy and soul-satisfying success.
Here are five great reasons to commit today to listening to your body.
1. Listening to Your Body Leads You to Vibrant Health.
Your brilliant body is always offering you feedback and information to guide you toward vibrant health.
Learn to listen to your body when it is whispering rather than ignoring it until it is screaming and you can enjoy extraordinary health, energy and vitality.
Hearing and responding to your body’s subtle signals allows you to transform negative effects of stress, maintain your optimal weight, discover self care that is truly nourishing for you, avoid many illnesses and reverse symptoms, pain and even diseases.
By listening to your body you activate your extraordinary and natural inner healing power.
2. Listening to Your Body Amplifies Your Joy, Delight and Pleasure.
Through your body-felt senses you experience happiness, delight, joy, bliss, fun and pleasure. When you tune out or ignore your body’s messages, you block your pleasure pathways.
Commit to honoring your body’s requests for healthy pleasure and you will feel better, look better, savor each day and become more fully who you really are.
Connect with the pleasure and delight of your body and you will become your most radiant, joyful and magnetic self.
3. Listening to Your Body Helps You Make Great Decisions.
Block your body’s intelligence and you cut off one of your most powerful intuitive channels.
Become adept at discerning the guidance your body is offering and you will save yourself time, money, anguish and regret.
Aligning with your body’s wisdom helps you gain clarity and make better decisions in every area of your life, including business, love, health, work, purpose, family and spirituality.
4. Listening To Your Body Nourishes Your Ageless Vitality and Beauty.
To look and feel your best as your life progresses, you must cultivate a loving relationship with your body.
Ignore your body’s guidance and your energy, mobility, strength, mental capacities, emotional resilience and looks will dramatically decline.
Although in our culture we are programed to think of these declines as an inevitable part of aging, cross-cultural studies and research show that many of these signs of “aging” are largely the effects of chronic misuse of our bodies.
Being in loving relationship with your body is the number one key to ageless energy, health and beauty.
Listen to your body’s wisdom and respond lovingly and intelligently and you will nourish your vitality, beauty, creativity, brain power, happiness, productivity and well-being at every age.
5. Listening to Your Body Empowers Your Positive Impact on the World.
When you listen and respond intelligently to your body you naturally become more authentic, peaceful, energetic, confident, strong, joyful and loving.
By caring deeply for your own true needs you set a great example for your friends and your family and you become less needy on anyone else to fix you.
Living in alignment with your body’s brilliance frees up your precious time and energy. You spend far less time stuck in states of confusion, poor health and unhappiness.
This liberated energy allows you to have the impact you want to have and to create the life and the world of your dreams.
