Are You Listening to Your Body?

listening

One of my favorite parts of nutrition school was listening to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s founder, Joshua Rosenthal speak. He has an amazing ability to capture everyone’s attention, because he is constantly giving out good advice. He is a strong believer that our body talks to us, so we have to listen to what it’s saying. Below is a quote I had to share as it’s a wonderful reminder for us to love and listen to our bodies.

We can, and must, develop dialogue and relatedness with our body because it’s talking to us all the time. And please remember, your body loves you. It does everything it can to keep you alive and functioning. You can feed it garbage, and it will take it and digest it for you. You can deprive it of sleep, but still it gets you up and running next morning. You can drink too much alcohol, and it will eliminate it from your system. It loves you unconditionally and does its best to allow you to live the life you came here for. The real issue in this relationship is not whether your body loves you, but whether you love your body. In any relationship, if one partner is loving, faithful and supportive, it’s easy for the other to take that person for granted. That’s what most of us do with our bodies. It is time for you to shift this, and working to understand your cravings is one of the best places to begin. Then you can build a mutually loving relationship with your own body.”
