The Art Of Listening To Your Body


{via etsy by Emily Reiter}

Lately, in addition to going to Pilates classes at my gym, I’ve been doing cardio kickboxing and TRX, which are pretty intense (and very fun). They get my heart rate up, and I can feel the negative energy, thoughts and ruminations just ooze out of me.

For me, exercise is also a great myth-buster. That’s because ever since I was little, my automatic assumption has been that I’m weak and can’t do A, B or X.

With a few exceptions, I’m not sure that I’ve really ever thought to myself, “Oh, yea, I can totally do this.” It’s been more like a hestitant, “Umm, OK, I’ll give a try, but don’t expect something spectacular.”

    Thank you for this post! I love that you say that exercise doesn’t only make you feel better about yourself but it also lets you see yourself in a more accurate light. When you’re exercising you see all that your body is capable of and how strong and vibrant it can be. Thank you for sharing!
