Mind/Body Connection: Taking care of yourself involves how you think about yourself. And the way we talk about our body can directly affect our wellness choices.
Too often, we imagine that loving your body means you have to feel beautiful all the time. That’s just not accurate; it’s about caring for it and treating it with respect no matter what. The question to ask is why you want to change your body. Wanting to be healthier, to have greater endurance, or to be less stressed are perfectly in line with loving your body. It gets tricky if the changes you seek are motivated solely by wanting to alter how you look. In fact, when exercise and eating habits are motivated only by appearance, they’re less likely to stick long-term. Remember that your body is your home, and it should not have to earn your respect by looking a certain way.
