The other day I was wondering about body issues. Frankly, I don’t know a single woman who would be absolutely happy with the way she turned out. Alright, there are some perfect angels living among us. They’ve got legs up to here and the skin and the eyes and the brain and a few other freebies that Mother Nature felt like throwing in the body building kit. Those gorgeous girls usually become top models.
And we make the rest of the female population, with perfectly normal features, all – quite unique and, in my opinion, also beautiful as long as… we remember to love our bodies.
The body that gets properly nourished with a good diet, pampered with a few beauty products, groomed as necessary and well-maintained through regular exercise, sleep and relaxation breaks, is always a beautiful, healthy and glowing, body.
This morning I wanted to remind everyone (including myself) that every BODY needs to be loved because our body is our best friend, the irreplaceable kind. So every time you are about to eat junk, starve or diet, feel like criticising your reflection in a mirror or ignoring a totally innocent wish of going for a walk, thing again. Would you do the same things to your friend? I doubt it.
Lets start our morning with a sun salutation or any other kind of yoga or even simple stretch, followed by a healthy nutritious breakfast (mine consists of red grapefruit, natural goats yoghurt, flax and a cup of green tea), a relaxing walk before lunch and an indulgent bath in the evening. I’m sure you’ll feel the benefits and your body will be very happy, too. And making friends happy is one of the best things in the world, isn’t it?
