Have you ever heard someone say, “listen to your body?” Have you ever actually done it? Listening to your body isn’t about physically listening for your body to speak words to you, but your body does communicate with you. When you’re running on empty and having gotten enough sleep, but you are continuing to be on the run, your body might slow you down. Your eyelids might get heavy, your body might be more difficult to move, and you might be abusing caffeine and energy drinks to keep you on the go.
In this case, your body has already told you to slow down and get some sleep, but you weren’t listening. Sometimes we get a gut feeling that contrasts with our mental process. Your mind might tell you to join an eating contest but your gut tells you that is definitely not the smartest idea for you.
Your body speaks to you so your mind can’t overcomplicate things. Listen to what your body is telling you. You’ll definitely thank your bodies, Lovelies!
