Are you loving your body today?

Body image is something that many women deal with on a daily basis. If I could just lose a few pounds here, and if my arms looked like Madonna’s, and if my belly was flat, then I’ll feel better.

It’s funny how even when we are already fit and healthy we can still think those thoughts of “if only.” Science is proving more and more that our thoughts can literally change the health of our cells and improve the healing process.

I invite you and myself today to stop for a moment, take a breath, and recognize the miracle of your human body. Feel gratitude for the systems within you that are working effectively and with ease.

I recently watched a video by astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson who talked about how our atoms are directly linked to the stars in the sky. I’ll post it here for you to watch:

When we think about our physical goals, whether we want to lose 10lbs, 50lbs, or just want to feel better in our jeans, just remember that your body is a miracle made from the most beautiful stars in the sky!

Love your body, even for this one brief moment.
