” We long for a body we don’t have, yet we don’t nourish the body that we do have.”
Health is not about deprivation but rather nourishment. We look in the mirror every day and most of us are not happy with what we see and we wish we had a different body. How do we come to make peace with the body we have? Self love and acceptance pays a crucial role in this.
Perhaps the deprivation comes from a place where too many of us think that we are not enough. I remember when I was little I dreamed of becoming a singer. At the time my dad told me that it was very competitive and that it is hard to become the best. Of course my memory from this moment may not be the most accurate but from this I started to believe that I would not stand a chance.
Believes like this can affect us years after if we let them. Our mind plays a crucial role in our success.
What if we asked ourselves every day on how we can nourish and strengthen our body to become healthier and stronger? What could we accomplish and how good could we feel?
Here are 3 simple tips to help you nourish yourself more every day:
- Ask yourself what food(s) can I add today that will nourish my body to become healthier?
- What exercise can I do today that will help make my body stronger?
- Repeat the affirmation “I am enough” and perhaps write it on your bathroom mirror.
