Power

We all need to take back our Power!

Responsibility of any sort should start with being responsible for our own health and wellbeing.

We have created a culture whereby we look for someone else to fix things…we go to the doctor and want him to fix us. How often do you hear people say ‘my doctor’s trying this’. Instead of ‘I’m making changes to my daily life because my body was telling me I needed to’.

Our bodies talk to us all the time, daily, in a million different ways. There was an ad years ago for headache tablets that said ‘pain is nature’s warning’ unfortunately it followed with ‘if pain persists see your doctor’. ‘Your’ doctor. We’ve created a system where we’re so dependent on the ‘health’ system telling us what we need that we’ve got a personal relationship with the local GP ….or in some cases it’s ‘my specialist said…’

There is a time for going to the doctors, but instead of it being for the 10% of times that we need trained help, we’ve let it become 90% of the time we feel anything is not right in our bodies but we want somebody else to fix our lifestyle mistakes.

We need to truly listen to our bodies and make the changes they suggest. Learn the language your body speaks. Use movement to find your body’s way to be the most optimal it can be. There are so many small things we can tweak in our lives with natural systems ourselves. Be aware. Listen. Be empowered and take your power back.
