CARE OF OUR BODY

RETURNING TO OUR NATURAL WELL-BEING

Our body offers us a great indicator or barometer of how we live with love (aroha) for ourselves. All our choices, from the way we move, how we communicate, what we eat, how we exercise, to the time we go to bed, have an impact on our body, health and well-being.

 

Our body is our best friend and is always giving us messages as to how it is feeling, we just need to take the time to stop, to listen and to act on these messages. If we don’t take the time to listen its messages will only get louder and eventually we may be brought to a stop with an illness, disease or injury.

 

When we take the time to ‘listen’ attentively, we realise that our body tells us very quickly if the choices we have been making have been caring and considerate, or not. But could it be that most of us have not been raised to know how to listen to our body and to decipher its many messages?

If we were to ask the question, ‘What keeps me well?’ and start super simply, we would probably come up with similar aspects of life to look at. Diet, hydration, exercise and sleep (rest), for example.

At a time when most sports have been cancelled due to Covid-19, are we being offered the opportunity to look at how we have been treating our body?...

PERSONAL STORIES

Ingrid shares how it has taken her until well into her 60’s to begin to understand how to truly care for her body and the difference this has made to the quality of her life. She asks the most important question “why has it taken me so long to understand a body that has supported me since the day I was born”, and explores how different her life would have been if she had been raised to understand her body from when she was young.

Vanessa shares the impact on her body growing up in a sports-mad culture ‘I did not understand sport for social reasons; for me I had to win at all costs. I repeat ‘at all costs’ because it has only come to my attention at the age of 48 what the cost was.'
