Focus On What Your Body Can DO

We spend a lot of time worrying about what our body looks like.

A LOT of time.

Often that energy turns into loathing, flagellation and negative thoughts toward your beautiful self.

When you notice this happening, try thinking about all of the amazing things your body can DO. Because it’s pretty f(*&king miraculous.

What are you letting in?

Fashion Blogs.

TV Shows.


What are you letting in? How is it making you feel? Why are you letting it into your space? Your space is yours to be protected.

My a$$ is two sizes bigger overnight! WTF?

You ever have those days that your ass apparently has grown two sizes overnight?

I have those. I wake up and I am like, “What in the actual f(*&?”

But I remind myself that it’s an illusion…it’s all in my head.

There isn’t any WAY to gain two sizes in my sleep.

Back in West Michigan, I interviewed a recovering bulimic. She was an Olympic medal winner who was outspoken about her disordered eating. She told me that when she has those days, she thinks hard about what’s stressing her out. For her, stress = illusion of weight gain. Once she could figure out her stressor, she could be like, “Ahhhh…that’s why.”

So what do you do when you wake up and feel this way?

Change your perspective.

Here are some tools that may help when you wake up and feel uncomfortable in your skin.  Click here if you want to print them out  and stick them up by your full-length mirror.

  1. Be tender with yourself. Instead of immediately unleashing self-loathing, be spacious and kind. “Oh look it’s one of those days today.”
  2. Walk away from the mirror and breathe.
  3. Come back to the mirror with eyes closed. Tell yourself, “I am beautiful. I am perfect as I am. My body is a gift. I love myself.”
  4. Open your eyes.
  5. I’m not kidding…how you SEE YOUR BODY WILL BE DIFFERENT.
  6. Simply by changing the internal narrative, you can change your perception.
  7. Think on the power of #6 and how you can apply it to other areas of your life.

Give it a try and let me know how it goes.

So much peace and love, Sarah

You’re Skin Sack

One of my teachers calls the body a Skin Sack. Every time it makes me laugh out loud. But it’s true right? It’s a container. It’s a beautiful, wonderful container.

The thing I’ve noticed is that we’re VERY WORRIED about how our Skin Sacks LOOK. But we’re not as concerned with how our Skin Sacks FEEL.

I know people who are 10% bodyfat and FEEL LIKE CRAP.

The important thing isn’t how your body looks…it’s how it feels. It’s being able to sense how it feels.

When you are able to get INTO your body, you start to sense and feel. Why is that important? Because then you are turning the volume up on your inner voice. You are tuning in to your Big S Self. Because your intuition, your ‘gut’, your inner voice – it speaks to you through your Body.

But if you feel like crap in your skin, it’s really hard to hear your inner voice. It’s drowned out by the mind chatter that’s telling you umm a whole list of crap


What do your voices say?

A GREAT tool to help start turning the table on the voices is this book. It’s called, “Making A Change for Good: A Guide to Compassionate Self-Discipline” by Cheri Huber. It’s helped me take  step back and not let the voices run the show. Highly recommend.

Peace, Sarah
