Journal for Clarity and Connection 1 – All about my Body

Week 1:  All About My Body

This week we are focussing on our physical bodies and all that entails for us.  Our plan is to understand and connect with our physical selves, a part of us often ignored as we rush through our busy lives.

Journaling Exercise:

Buy a journal if you don’t already have one..  Commit to writing a few pages every morning, and spend this time reflecting on what you like and dislike about your health and body.  Use any of these starters to help you:

  • When I tune into my body I feel…
  • The parts of me I have neglected are…
  • If my internal organs, and my body could talk, they would tell me that…
  • The sorts of movement my body enjoys are…
  • When I look at myself in the mirror I…
  • I would like to look at myself in the mirror and see…
  • When I eat…
  • It feels amazing to…
  • I look really great in…
  • I would feel better if…
  • There are a few things I need in order to look and feel my best.  They are…
  • People who could help me are…
  • A time in my life when I felt really good about my physical self was…
  • My body would love it if…
  • The things I am grateful to my physical body for are…

Read back over your journal in the evening. Use a highlighter to mark things that are important to you so you can form a clear idea of what changes you would like to make in your life.  Continue this exercise for the whole week, focusing on health, nutrition, clothing style, hair, makeup, sleep, exercise and well being.  Create lists and tasks to help you move your body to a place of wellness and feel-good.  Transfer your lists to a day planner or master list book, and begin to action them.

Activity:

Go for a walk each day, or do some form of exercise that refreshes you.  Clean out your fridge and kitchen cupboards, get rid of all the junk, and shop for healthy food.  Eat fresh fruit and vegetables every day, drink plenty of clean, fresh water, cut down on caffeine, alcohol, cigarettes, processed food and sugar.

 

Sort out your wardrobe and bathroom cabinets.  Throw out old, broken, never used and low self-worth stuff.  Work out what you need to do to start looking and feeling better and add those things to your list!

Nurture your body with massages, baths, oils and lotions. Treat it to good eating, and gentle (or more rigorous if you’re up to it) movement. Tell your body often that you are grateful for all it does for you. Thank it and love it and appreciate it. Listen to it, and it will tell you what it needs!
