The Importance of Trusting Yourself Including Your Body

In life, we may question ourselves and how we’re feeling, just because we may not trust ourselves enough. Listening to your body and your mind is important, because more often than not your body is likely to know that something is wrong before you do. Listening to your body and trusting yourself requires you to tune into your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. It’s important to stay mindful of symptoms that may not be the norm for you, and to also listen to your body when you’re tired and simply need a break. A lot of people may have some trouble listening and trusting their bodies, but I’m here to give you a few tips and tricks to help ease the process.

In previous blogs and podcasts, we’ve mentioned doing "real" check ins on your friends and family, but today, I want to emphasize the importance of checking in with yourself. How have you been doing in terms of stress and exercise? Have you been getting enough sleep? Did you eat today/yesterday? Did you eat enough? These are all questions for you to ask yourself and check in with yourself. Once you figure out the answers, act on them!

This leads me to next point, which is taking care of yourself. Eating, drinking water, and getting enough sleep are all basic necessities that we all tend to forget about. It’s important to nourish our bodies so we can avoid being uncomfortable and/or face irritability and being upset. It’s important to take care of these needs before we try to focus on other things, as meeting these are necessary to help your mind and body.

We’ve also discussed previously about our positive thinking, and it’s important to recognize when we are speaking and thinking negatively about ourselves. Catching ourselves and recognizing when we are going down a negative path is important so we can understand and recognize that there may be something else underlying with us. Journaling is one of the many ways my clients are able to keep track of negative self talk, negative feelings or emotions. If you haven't already, you may want to give it a try.

We should also learn when to slow down and take a break. By the time burn out happens, that means a break has been long overdue. It’s important to begin to learn your own body’s limits and set your boundaries for what you do and don’t allow.
