Have you seen the movie “What the Bleep”? there’s an excellent scene therein movie where the body-hating star breaks through to loving her body. She starts to draw hearts and love messages everywhere herself and relaxes into appreciation rather than loathing.
We’re taught tons of things to try to to to our bodies. Work it, sculpt it, starve it, push it, train it, discipline it. Most of them aren’t pleasant. What about loving it? What if we treated our bodies amorously and tenderness?
Okay, it sounds a touch sappy, I know. But really believe the thought for a flash . WHAT IF you made a choice to treat your body with the last word in kindness?
How would your body feel if you…
*Fed it the simplest , most delicious, most nutritious foods
*Gave it just the proper amounts of food to feel light and filled with energy
*Pampered it with fun movement
*Let it nap or rest when it had been tired
*Treated it to healing massages and long soaks in warm water
*Noticed all the wonderful, beautiful things about it and overlooked its flaws
Writing love letters everywhere yourself may be a good way to form friends together with your body. It’s much harder to assault your body with overeating once you know you’ve got “I love you,” hearts, spirals, “thank you,” etc. written underneath your clothes.
Adopt self-nurturing as how of life. Your body will LOVE YOU for LOVING IT. you’ll naturally live at your own perfect weight without effort or strain. Treat yourself well and love your body into the height of health.
