Write A Love Letter On Your Body

Write A Love Letter On Your Body

Have you seen the movie "What the Bleep"? There is​ a​ great scene in​ that movie where the body-hating star breaks through to​ loving her body. She starts to​ draw hearts and love messages all over herself and relaxes into appreciation instead of​ loathing.

We're taught a​ lot of​ things to​ do to​ our bodies. Work it, sculpt it, starve it, push it, train it, discipline it. Most of​ them are not pleasant. What about loving it? What if​ we treated our bodies with love and tenderness?

Okay, it​ sounds a​ little sappy, I know. But really think about the idea for a​ moment. WHAT if​ you made a​ decision to​ treat your body with the ultimate in​ kindness?

How would your body feel if​ you...
*Fed it​ the best, most delicious, most nutritious foods
*Gave it​ just the right amounts of​ food to​ feel light and full of​ energy
*Pampered it​ with fun movement
*Let it​ nap or​ rest when it​ was tired
*Treated it​ to​ healing massages and long soaks in​ warm water
*Noticed all the wonderful, beautiful things about it​ and overlooked its flaws

Writing love letters all over yourself is​ a​ great way to​ make friends with your body. It's much harder to​ assault your body with overeating when you know you have "I love you," hearts, spirals, "thank you," etc. written underneath your clothes.

Adopt self-nurturing as​ a​ way of​ life. Your body will LOVE YOU for LOVING IT. You will naturally live at​ your own perfect weight without effort or​ strain. Treat yourself well and love your body into the peak of​ health.
