LISTENING TO OUR BODIES ALLOWS US TO INHABIT THEM WITH A FULL AWARENESS OF WHOLENESS: January 30, 2018

WEEK 5 OF THE 40-DAY MINDFULNESS CHALLENGE

“Bodies are subject to inevitable breakdown.
But they do seem to break down sooner
and to heal less rapidly
and less completely
if they are not cared for
and listened to in some basic ways.
For this reason, taking proper care of your body
is of great importance
both in the prevention of disease
and in the work of healing from
illness, disease, or injury.

Step number one in caring for your body,
whether you are sick or injured or healthy,
is to practice being ‘in’ it,
to actually inhabit it with full awareness.
Tuning in to your breathing and to the sensations
that you can feel in your body
is one very practical way to work at being in your body.
It helps you to stay in close touch with it
and then to act on what you learn as you listen to its messages.

The body scan is a very powerful form of ‘rebodying,’
since you are regularly checking in with,
listening to,
befriending,
and embracing
every region of your body systematically . . . .”
