LISTEN TO YOUR BODY

Your body throws itself into chaos when something is seriously WRONG.

Don’t just pretend it’s okay, or worse (*cough* ME) moan and moan and moan but not DO anything about it.

I’d say it should be obligatory to do a degree in our bodies- mental, physical, the lot. What are you putting into your body that is causing distress? What are you not doing that you should be? Why are you so exhausted? What’s causing your anxiety? If something makes you bloat to fuuuuuuuuuuuk, identify it and stop bloody eating it.

Self-study is so important. Lately, I’ve been looking into the sacral chakra (located in the pelvis area) hoping to unlock creative potential and drive as well as let go of my insecurities around intimacy and connection (QUE THIS SONG).

I’ve also recently discovered that my anxiety (feeling of dread, panic, worry, sweats, lightheadedness) can be worked on via the solar plexus chakras (right in the gut). Rather than simply saying, “I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2013, anxiety is part of that”, and taking all the meds and trying all the therapies [external], I’m trying to look INSIDE. What is out of balance? Why is it? How can I practice rebalancing? Realigning?

You won’t heal overnight.

Knowing where to start is probably the most difficult part. But don’t make it into a Big Thing.

Start with listening to your body. Dive deep, as deep as you can go. Find your core.

What do you hear?

 

*This is part of my 2017 project to recall the lessons life throws at me so that 23 won’t just be another year like the others, but one of contemplation and growth. What have you learnt so far this year? Do you listen to your body enough? Do you suffer from headaches? Stomach cramps? Anxiety? Practice listening. Can you identify anything INSIDE that’s become out of sync? Please get in touch here or email me, I’d love to discuss this further with you.

Hi! I'm Sarah. I dropped out of university tired with the mundane life I was living in England. Now I'm an aspiring ex-pat of the world, having already lived and worked in Vietnam, Italy and Maldives. I'm using this blog to document my experiences and hopefully inspire others!

What do you think? Let me know!
