What do you do to “self care?” It’s something so many of us neglect in our busy, day-to-day lives. What do you do to care for yourself when you’re down or sad? Take a pen and paper and write a list! Stick it on your bedroom wall if needed, so that you can look at it when you need inspiration! It could be as simple as going for a walk or having a warm bath.
Do you listen to your body and what it needs? What do you find is happening when you are not listening and ignoring those messages? We’re often taught not to listen to our body and to “silence” those messages.
How do you think being in touch with the needs of our body might be connected to our sexuality? Do you love, respect and nurture your body or do you resent it, hate it and punish it? Fulfilling and enriching sex comes from a place of self love and acceptance!
Are you in love with your body and all of its skin? Do you see your scars and stretch marks as badges of honour or things to be ashamed of? What are some of your favourite things about your body?
If you were to imagine that your body was a temple how you treat your body differently? How does the way you treat your body reflect how you feel about it? Would your temple be run down and neglected or a divine, sacred place of love and nurture?
What are some of the healing, comforting, sensual, loving and invigorating things you are doing to adorn and cherish your temple? How is your body or temple unique and different? How can you glory in your difference so as not to bring yourself down with comparing yourself to others. We are not billboards. We are living, holistic beings with beautiful flaws. How can you embrace your flaws?
I’d love to read your answers.
