My Body Doesn't Lie!

Thursday, September 05, 2019

Now is My Time to Listen to My Body!
My body is talking me, and sometimes, it is brutally honest. I may not remember just how many cookies I ate, but my body knows. On the other hand, my body knows when I’ve walked 10K steps even if I forgot to charge the FitBit. My body knows the positive and negative things that I’ve done to help or hurt it.
Yesterday I took my BP after work. It was 183/103. I knew that I had to listen closely! I had forgotten to take my medication in the morning. Usually, my BP is 141/68. I started listening closely. I also made sure to take my medication. The closer that we listen, the better we will be!
I've dealt with a lot of people who have "misrepresented the truth" from time to time. I'm sure that you have too. One person who knows the truth about me is me. If I eat more than I should, it shows up on the scales. If I don't walk the full 2 miles, my body lets me know in one way or another that I misrepresented my Spark numbers. My body doesn't lie.
It's worth facing the truth about what I eat and how much I exercise. My body eventually responds well then I do. I've been spending some extra time this fall walking, biking and kayaking. I feel great and the scale shows that I've done what I've been entering into my Spark records.

When we work at our health, our body responds well to it! My advice to you today is this: take your health seriously, and treat your body well! You only get one body. It will last your whole lifetime. Take good care of yourself!

Listen To Your Body - Poem by Samanyan Lakshminarayanan

listen to your body
for it will be all the remedy
for whatever you go through

all the five elements
of the universe
is there in you in elements

as receptors of them
you have your all
nose eyes ear tongue and throat

listen to your body
for it will awaken all your soldiers
as remedies for all you go through

Samanyan Lakshminarayanan
