Get Into Your Body!

At the recent annual meeting of the Christian Medical and Dental Association, I met a very caring clinician who said something that I think might be helpful to you. She talked about how she tells her patients "Feel your body move!" She said that many of her overweight ladies hardly ever move for fun. They think of moving as a chore. So, she tells them to play music they enjoy and dance around, feeling the sensations of their body parts moving --- even if that means dancing alone.
What a fabulous idea! Psychologically, many people are disconnected from their bodies, in a way. They don't see them and they don't feel them. That's especially true for many overweight people. When they look in the mirror, they see themselves only from the neck up because they can't bear to confront their obesity. And, they wear loose, tent-like clothing.
If you feel out of touch with your body (or if you're having trouble finding your hunger pangs), then take my new friend's advice. Put some music on that you enjoy and move around to the music. Feel the sensation of your different body parts moving. Maybe even dance in front of the mirror so you can see and feel your body at the same time. Get out of your head and into your body.
Even if you don't like what you see, praise God anyway and thank Him for the new mindset in which you love and care for your body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit.
