“We are not who we think we are. A lot of the time, we are much, much bigger BUT we have very diminished views of ourselves.”
Befriend your body without feeling the need to change it or fix it. Allow yourself to exist in a state of simply “being” without feeling a need to be constantly “doing” something. Learn to become more mindful and aware, rather than filling life with so many mindless actions and limiting beliefs.
Jon Kabat-Zinn explains that accepting our bodies as they are isn’t so hard when you recognize how amazing they truly are, and that befriending them can do you a lot of good. This was part of a talk put on by UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center.
