Are you loving you—no matter what?
Are you living as the person you intend to be?
Do your actions line up with your desires for the body you want to create?
Often the answer is “No.”
For instance, you may want with all your heart to be fit and lean, but you consistently overeat or blow off exercise.
I’m just as guilty of this as anyone else. For the past two weeks, I’ve overeaten or made less than stellar choices. While I am happy to say that the over-indulgences weren’t nearly what they would have been in the past, I still made the conscious choices to eat and drink more than is absolutely best for me.
And I’ve been judging myself.
So for the past couple of days, I’ve been focused on tapping into my self-love—which has truly been the key to my losing 34 pounds and keeping it off for more than 2 years.
Here are three ways to begin loving you.
- Practice appreciation. You may have to begin with external things—like your pets or children. But when you get a solid feeling of appreciation going, turn that light on yourself. Appreciate who you are, what you are doing to move towards your wellness goals, and how hard your body is working on your behalf.
- Love your body in pieces. If you typically look in the mirror and are critical, you may have to start off small and work your way up. For instance, sit quietly and send love to your toes. Then let that feeling of love spread to the balls of your feet, to your arches, and into your heels. Slowly work your way up your body loving every specific part as you go.
- Focus on your heart. Sit quietly and think about your heart. Feel it opening up and generating a warm, green light. Imagine that loving light beginning to spread all around you. It can actually be helpful to put your hand on your heart as you do this.
While this may seem like woo-woo meditations, what you are really doing is tapping into positive anabolic energy that is enabling your body to regenerate and rebuild down to the cellular level.
As Mike Dooley said in today’s Notes from the Universe:
Turning up the love turns on everything else. Everything, as in whatever your heart desires, including the processes that will bring it to you.
Notice what happens when you begin practicing self-love. How does loving yourself help you create the body–and life–you want?
