Your body has automatic systems in place to keep you alive. No matter what you do, your body serves to function for you & optimize your human experience
Loving your body is a way to love yourself
When you make peace with her and speak lovingly to her she can be at ease which supports her in her automatic processes
Your parasympathetic nervous system is one of these autonomic systems
It can be influenced by your thoughts about things happening around you, things you choose to do, and your perception
Reinforcing that your thoughts, beliefs, and words all influence the way your body serves you
Living in fear can promote a survival or preservation mode response—stressful
The body is so complex; all of us are sooo complex
But what if you could make your life just a little bit easier by providing support to the vessel that carries you?
Not just through exercise or nutrition but also in coping mechanisms, thought patterns, and inner healing
We cannot solely rely on or blame our body for her automatic responses like an elevated heart rate, butterflies, an urge to vomit, tight chest, or stiff muscles
Changing how we talk about, look at, connect with, and nourish ourselves on every level can go along way
It is not fair to expect more from your body if you’re not giving her what she needs or supporting her in finding other pathways or responses
You may be a product of genetics, parenting, socioeconomics, trauma, culture...but you are also a product of your own choices, behaviors, habits, and beliefs
If you want to change your outcomes and results, change the inputs
Having a partnership with your body built on communication, trust, collaboration, and encouragement can go so much further than only focusing on one facet of yourself or your life
BUILD MORE THAN JUST A BODY

I have a free 18 ways to love yourself printable on my site, a personal development prompt card deck (built for competitors but broadly applicable), and a self-help book that serves as a guided journal
