Listening To Your Body




‘You need to listen to your body because your body is listening to you.”
Phil McGraw

Is your life out of sync with your priorities? Do you feel like you are a hamster running on a wheel? If so you can begin to change things. Firstly by learning to listen to your inner voice – the essence of who you are.

Connect with your body. Our body gives us a tremendous amount of useful information that we may not be conscious of. For example, When your boss yells at you, do your shoulders turn into stone? When you feel passionate and alive, does your chest feel warm and open? When we ignore the body’s message, we lose out on valuable information designed to let us what works for us and what does not.

For many of us, fear manifests as a tightness in our chest. This is valuable information, especially if you are not aware that you are afraid. Your body alerts you to what makes feels passionate and what does not. The body is a fount of wisdom designed to tell you when you are on the right path and when you are not.

Notice the messages your body is giving you right now. Make a self-massage to find areas in your back, neck or shoulders that are tense or knotted. What other areas of your body feel tight? Which ones feel relaxed and loose? Use this information as another key to listening to your inner wisdom.

Your body is sending you messages, core, gut feelings, all the time. You do not need to reason them, logic them, or intellectualise them. You just need to act on them. Be open to your body. It is always speaking. Be willing to listen……. Listen to what your body is telling you today.


Your body is your best guide. It constantly tells you, in the form of pain or sensations, what’s working for you and what’s not.”
Hina Hashmi
