Your body houses you… your thoughts, your dreams, your aspirations, your good, your bad, your baggage that you don’t want people to see, and the shine that everyone should see.
“What if you viewed your body as your home for the rest of your life? Every cell in your body is truly a part of your one and only home. You don’t have to like your home, but it’s important to respect it and treat it with dignity.” – Intuitive Eating for Every Day by Evelyn Tribole
If you think about it as your home…
🏡 What kind of home do you want to have?
🏡 Do you want it to feel welcoming and warm?
🏡 What do you feel you might need to rearrange?
🏡 Are you a good steward of your home?
Viewing your body as your home can be a powerful mindset shift that promotes self-care and overall well-being.
Your body is the place where you reside, where you experience life, and where your unique essence resides. Just as you take care of your physical living space, it’s essential to care for and honor your body.
Imagine your body as a sanctuary, a safe haven that deserves love, respect, and nurturing. Just as you create a comfortable and inviting atmosphere in your home, prioritize creating a positive and healthy environment within your body. Treat your body with kindness, compassion, and gratitude. Nurture it with nourishing foods, regular movement, and adequate rest. Just as you would maintain your home, maintain your body through self-care practices that bring you joy and promote well-being. Listen to your body’s needs and honor its signals. Pay attention to how certain foods, activities, and environments make you feel. Surround yourself with positive influences and relationships that uplift and support your well-being.
Embrace your body as it is, recognizing its unique beauty and strengths. Celebrate its abilities and the incredible things it allows you to do each day. Cultivate a positive body image and practice self-love, embracing your body with acceptance and appreciation.
- I personally wish to have warmth in my heart and invite others in… to learn… love… laugh…
- I choose to use my home to run fast, lift heavy, and love wildly.
- I choose to keep my home in order so I can live longer to hold my husband, kids, and (one day) grandkids.
- I choose to model to others around me how we are meant to be good stewards of our homes.
Remember, your body is your home, and it deserves your care and attention. Nourish it, move it, and love it, for it is the vessel that carries you through life’s journey.
We have one home 🏡 It is up to us to choose how we keep it and feel in it.
