We believe you should treat your body like it’s a temple and honor it by taking the best care of it that you can, after all, it’s the only one you’ve got. There are so many things you can do each and every day to give thanks to your body. When you’re body is taken care of well you feel good, you are able to do more, it doesn’t hold you back with aches, pains and limitations. Learn to listen to your body and inner voice, it’s there to help you keep it working at it’s best.
What does this mean and how do you apply it to your life and your body? There are so many ways for you to give thanks to your body and honor it, below are just a few.
- Daily Meditation: even if it’s just 5 minutes of closing your eyes, sitting still and focusing on breathing in and breathing out.
- Yoga: daily, weekly, an at-home practice and/or on the mat in our studio. This will help you connect your body and mind for a more balanced way of living.
- Massage: this may seem like it’s a “treat” or an “indulgence” or something that people only do when they have aches and pains. Not true. Massage can simply be looked at as being proactive about your health and well-being. If you take vitamins to keep yourself healthy, why not a regular massage?
- Acupuncture: this Eastern practice is again not just to be utilized when you are having a health problem, look at it as a way to stay healthy, and keep feeling good.
There are many things you can do to take care of yourself. The point is to be sure to look at them as necessary, and do them. Remember, you’ve only got one body! Please allow us at CNY Healing Arts Center the opportunity to assist you. We would love to be of service.
