Whenever you’re feeling lost, confused or overwhelmed come back to your body. It knows the way.
Sometimes there are just too many words. We need to verbally process things so that we can understand and make sense of anything that’s happening. But there can also be too much talking, too much noise. Too much input. We need to balance that with time to go inward, with time for quiet and peaceful reflection – so that we can get out of our heads and into our bodies.
We need to turn our focus away from other people, from out there and turn it inwards instead. We need to be able to hear ourselves thinking and living.
We need time to pause and just be, to let things integrate and catch up – time to replenish and restore. So take those opportunities, especially when you’re feeling tired or going through anything difficult.
Notice what helps you feel more grounded and more connected to your body, and use these practices to help you calm a busy or worried mind.
Get out in nature and feel the earth underneath your feet. Stretch and move your body in whichever ways feel good. Eat foods that feel nourishing.
Breathe deeply. Pay attention to your body as you move throughout your day. How does it feel in general? What might it be asking for right now?
Our bodies are talking to us all the time. We just need to be present enough to hear what they’re saying. We need to tune in and listen.
Getting quiet and grounded will help you do just that.
Be in your body as much as you can to connect to your truth and to live your best possible life.
Turn inward to get information rather than outward. Your body has the wisdom to know what it needs.
When we’re full of information from the outside, there’s no room to hear what’s within. There is no room for inspiration. We need to create space so our own inner wisdom can be heard.
We can do this through meditation, being out in nature, breathing, doing something physical or simply by doing nothing.
Ask what your body needs right now to support it.
What foods does your body want to eat? What foods does it respond well to?
How does it want to move?
How does it want to rest and rejuvenate?
What is your body really asking for?
Your body is a temple. So don’t ignore it. Don’t override it. It’ll be one of the best teachers and guides you’ll ever have if you let it.
It knows the way.
Fuel it. Nourish it. Revere it. You only get one body. Treat it as such.
