Truly re­spect your body and chart a new course of in­cred­i­ble health-driven re­sults

Style Magazine - - Opinion - BY SARAH KEE­LEY

Health and well­be­ing is more than how much you weigh, how happy you are, how good you look, or how much you smile.

It’s about how well you are liv­ing your true life and en­joy­ing the jour­ney.

But how do we nav­i­gate all the fads and dis­trac­tions out there in or­der to find com­plete health and well­be­ing? Health, to me, is self-love.

If you love your­self you are putting your body, mind and spirit first.

You re­spect your body – you do not feed it bad foods, slouch on the couch all night or speak badly of your­self (you know that voice in­side your head).

You nour­ish your­self with sea­sonal, whole­foods you know your body can di­gest.

You en­joy mov­ing and ed­u­cat­ing your­self in or­der to grow.

You speak kindly about your body and you prac­tise mind­ful­ness; be that through med­i­ta­tion or just con­cen­trat­ing on deep breath­ing.

Well­be­ing is find­ing the best rhythm for your mind and body to re­lease neg­a­tiv­ity and ac­cept joy, love and har­mony.

Maybe this is through ex­er­cise, soak­ing up the sun­shine, danc­ing, or even just laugh­ing with friends.

As they say: your body is your tem­ple. So, let’s re­spect it and avoid clut­ter­ing it up with neg­a­tive thoughts, drain­ing foods and mind­less ac­tiv­i­ties.

Health is a jour­ney – do not com­pare your­self to oth­ers.

Just be present, re­spect­ful and lis­ten to your in­tu­ition.
