Body Appreciation – Getting in Your Body

Your body is part of the gift of you. It is part of the WHOLE package.

This beautiful machine houses your spirit. It allows you to sense and feel, move through the world, give and receive love, communicate, do your work, create…

It’s important to connect with it in a way that feels good and right for you. Your body longs for you to celebrate, appreciate, feel it.

It can be as simple as a breath. But see how it feels to feel your edges, appreciate all the body does without your asking (breathing, digesting, regulating,) notice the areas of tension and/or pain and give them your attention and loving kindness, thank your body from head to toe.

See how it feels to BE in your body.

Peace, Sarah

Body Appreciation – Awe, Wonder & Appreciation

Last post we talked about “The Disconnect” that can occur from the beautiful gift of our machines. It can happen for many reasons. But this disconnection is designed to never allow yourself to be satisfied or at home in your body.

And the messages from marketers are all around the superficial. Get thinner. Get stronger. Get whatever.

This can leave you chronically discontented with your physical body.

What if we stood back and looked at all your body DOES moment to moment? What is in that noticing, you could begin to stand in awe – wonder – and deep gratitude for the gift that is your body?

Let me know what you think and how this shift goes for you.

Body Appreciation – The Disconnect

There is this thing that happens, for many reasons, that I call “The Disconnect.”

That moment when you disconnect from your beautiful body. All of a sudden you’re at odds with it. Frustrated with it. Disgusted by it.

Click here to watch a little about “The Disconnect” 

I watch my youngest running around and fully embodied in herself. It is a thing of beauty. I watch my oldest and remember the strange discomfort that happens when you’re a teenager – too tall, too thin, clutzy.

It is the human experience, but marketers take advantage of what is meant to be a stage. They prolong it so that a human never feels good and right in their skin.

  • Lose weight.
  • Boob implants.
  • Botox.
  • Tummy tucks.
  • Lipo
  • Photoshop

And this just scratches the surface.

The thing is – your body in whatever form is how you sense and feel and experience this life. We’re going to be talking more about appreciating your body in upcoming weeks. For now, start to notice the areas and spaces that you have a dislike, distaste, frustration with your body.

See where you hang out.

Peace, Sarah

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
