Motivational Monday: 10 Quotes to INSPIRE YOUR BODY

“Our inner guidance comes to us through our feelings and body wisdom first — not through intellectual understanding.” ~ Christiane Northrup


Because thoughts come from our head, and said thoughts tend to be loud (very loud), we are inclined to live there – in our heads.
What happens when we live in our heads?
We disconnect from our bodies. That’s what happens! We disconnect from our bodies. We lose touch with our bodies and the fact is – yes it is a fact – that our bodies know us better than our minds do.
Imagine that … just for a moment. Your body knows you better than your mind knows you. Our thoughts are often skewed and out right wrong. But our bodies? Our bodies don’t lie to us. Our bodies are never wrong.
What we need to do is shift our attention from our ‘head’ thoughts and move it to our bodies. Notice your breath. Are you breathing? Deeply or barely at all? Scan your body. Are your muscles tense? Where are the knots? Where is the energy blocked?
Your body feels good when she (or he) is happy. Your body is the source of your vitality, your intuition, your enthusiasm; and it is the source of your motivation.
You want to know how to stay motivated, don’t you?
Tap into your body. Breathe deeply. Stretch. Release the tension. And ask your body, “Body, dear sweet body, that is under-appreciated for all that you do for me, what do you want?”
Listen to your body.

    I know that was one of my biggest problems, I wasn’t looking at my body. I was only listening to what was in my head. Otherwise I wouldn’t have continued to eat badly, when I could see my body. I didn’t realize how much I had changed, cause I wasn’t only remembering how I used to look!!! THANKS for the LIST, I will keep it in my MIND at all TIMES. It’s useful things to remember always! Thanks AGAIN JANICE another GREAT one!!!
