Of Twists, Seaweed, and Water

December 17th, 2008 — 1:43pm

It’s that time of year again, when I usually eat too much, drink too much, and don’t get enough exercise or sleep. This year, though, I’m going to try a  different tack. I’m going to try to listen to my body.

When I slow down enough and ask my body what she needs, she speaks back loud and clear. Here’s what she’s saying:

“I”m thirsty! More water now.”

“My kidney region is tight and congested. I need some twists! Get me into Ardha Matsyendrasana or Twisted Agnistambhasana pronto!”

“And make some soup, will ya? Add a piece of kombu while you’re at it. I need the minerals!”

I jest, but the deeper truth is, our bodies do talk. We just need to make the time to listen.

    I was looking on Amazon for another book (hopefully similar to yours) to be my friend on my journey of becoming more mindful with food. Finding none after 15 minutes, I realized that looking through your blog posts might do the trick. This post is right on. Our bodies do talk to us, and all we need to do is take the time to listen.

    If we’re brave enough.
