How to Start Listening to Your Body
Published on 2009-12-30 by Deepak Chopra, MD
This may be hard to believe, but as a doctor I’ve seen many patients with beautiful, young, so-called perfect bodies who never listen to them. They are too worried to know what their bodies are actually saying. They are too wrapped up in body image, and the whole scam about being perfect. Ironically, their bodies are all in their heads. Your body and mind are meant to be a whole, and to ensure that they are, your whole existence is based on feedback loops. Body listens to mind; mind listens to body. Awareness is the link. Make no mistake: Every cell knows when you are unhappy, anxious or stressed. A cell’s awareness is expressed in chemical reactions instead of words. No matter. The message comes through loud and clear. Published in Oprah.com
