Listening To My Body’s Needs

Learning, Strengthening, Living . . .

What is that saying, “No Pain, No Gain” . . .

Over the past year I have learned that pain is not always bad! Pain is part of being human and with hard work comes great gains. Pain is doable and manageable in living my life and to the fullest too. Just Breathe, right!

I took for granted what my body did and does for me!

I have discovered that knowing how to breathe and having great posture makes a BIG difference in dealing with pain! Stretching and rotation are key too.  At times the feeling of tightness and cramping is worse than the actual pain. I am learning to find my calm self in order to let the tension, pressure and stress just release and let go! It significantly helps with the pain, tightness and cramping.

The #1 thing that has been eye opening is having the right team to help me through this process! I am bringing awareness to myself and my body. I am figuring out what my body needs to heal and strengthen. I am tuning into the way my body moves in its motions.

Just the education I have soaked up from this team of people amazes me at times! I am learning about muscles, nerves and joints and the importance to the human body and how it functions. For instance, the blood cannot properly flow to an area that is tight, cramped or congested. This could potential cause damage within that area as well as cause aches and pains.

So . . . Ding, Ding! I need to listen to those aches and pains and figure out what my body needs. Is it telling me to slow down and take a chill? It is telling me to hit the gym to work out and stretch out? What DOES my body NEED!

I DO NOT have to give into the pain! I can feel the pain and know how to release it now. I am discovering a deeper connection with myself, my needs and my WHOLE being! I am working on slowing down, relaxing and resting.
