10 Ways to Love Your Body

Sunday, October 19, 2008

After reading this Blog on SparkPeople about loving your body. I copied the information to be blogged to my page. Because if I understand that we all need to view ourselves better. Their is a possibilty that their are others that could use the encouragement as well.

10 Ways to Love Your Body

1.Indulge on your own terms. Whether it's fresh veggies from the Farmer's Market, or a pint of Häagen Dazs Vanilla Fudge ice cream or loving your body is also about loving your taste buds every once in a while. emoticon

2.Stretch your mind and body. Yoga—gentle yoga that encompasses relaxation and a healthy lifestyle, as well as meditative yoga—can bring one to the consciousness of their unique inner being. Yoga can rejuvenate the mind and body and teach us how to care for ourselves. emoticon

3.Read. It can be a source of entertainment, a way to catch up on current events or an educational tool. Several books have been published on loving your body—get some new ideas! emoticon

4.Throw a private party. It worked for India.Arie and it can work for you too. Take a day for yourself and yourself only. Turn off your cell and log out of your instant messenger. Just spend the day looking in the mirror and exploring your body. Once the celebration is over you'll realize that you learn something new everyday. emoticon

5.Laugh out Loud. This isn't just an Internet acronym spelled out. It's an action that will do your body some good. Don't be afraid to show the world your smile. It's contagious. emoticon

6.Have safe sex. Loving our bodies is about keeping them healthy and free from diseases. And besides, there's nothing like getting a two for one on Love Your Body Day. emoticon

7.Spend time with your family. Whether it's a pet or partner, your spouse or a sibling, quality time is a must-have in nurturing relationships which in turn nurture and love your body. emoticon emoticon

8.Listen to positive music. Developing a theme song can do wonders for your body esteem and your overall outlook. emoticon

9.Develop a creative outlet. Everyone needs a medium to express daily stress and frustrations constructively. Maybe you're a photographer, writer, poet or all three. Maybe you can knit, make shapes out of clay or finger paint. Loving your body is also about loving your mind.

    Just checking in after being MIA for the past three weeks with a houseful of guests. I love your blog. I like the idea of a private party, and generally being good to my body. This afternoon I will go to the gym for the first time since our guests arrived, and I plan to really enjoy myself there! Thanks for the inspiration!
