love your bodyI often write about self-careSelf-care can include so many different things.  Self-care can be taking care of yourself emotionally, mentally or physically.  It can involve rest or pleasure or self-love.  One of the ways you can practice self-care is by treating your body well.

Here are some ways to treat your body well

  • Get enough sleep or rest
  • Get some exercise (but don’t overdo it)
  • Get a massage, acupuncture, craniosacral therapy or another form of bodywork that feels good
  • Dance
  • Eat well (This can be tricky because at times having a treat can be self-care too.  Having a treat is different than overindulging.  Notice how your body feels after you eat different things.)
  • Enjoy some physical pleasure
  • Make sure you get check ups and treat any injuries, illnesses, etc.
  • Love your body (How do you look at your body?  How do you talk about it?  Is it time for you to send some love to your body?  Recognize at least one thing you love about your body.)
  • Appreciate your body (It’s so easy to focus on what isn’t working.  Aches and pains can consume our energy.  What about what is working?  Practice some body gratitude.)
  • Pamper your body (get a pedicure, take the time to spread lotion all over your body, have someone wash your hair, etc)

How you feel in your body has a big influence on how you feel in general.  Treat your body well and notice how that positively impacts your life!
