Love is more than just a feeling. While it is important to have positive feelings towards your body, it is even better to take it a step further and put those feelings into action. If you have a hard time “feeling the love” for your body, taking steps towards acting in a way that is loving and respectful towards your body can help you get there. When you start taking care of yourself, both physically and emotionally, it gets easier to start appreciating your body on a new level.
One of the keys to a healthy relationship is good listening skills. When it comes to having a healthy relationship with your body, listening is top priority. You need to be tuned into your body’s feedback if you want to take care of it. Paying attention to your body’s needs and how it responds, you also learn to cooperate with your body and stop viewing it as the enemy who is out to get you. Most of us have been battling our bodies for as long as we can remember. It’s time to call a truce and let your body bring some valuable information to the table. You might be surprised at what it has to say.
