Listen Feelingly

Communicate with your body That's a two way conversation You don't just tell your body what to do It warns you " HEY THAT'S HOT!" for your brains consideration Communicate with your body That's a listening skill See the pain in my head isn't there to punish me for the party But to let me know that something isn't quite right and needs to be addressed It could be telling me that I'm addicted to caffeine And I can either bear a week of dull pain Or reach the coffee cup to my mouth. How can you be sure? Same language, different sentences So you'll need to listen and learn... feelingly Like engaging with any counterpart in equal conversation Because you're not the boss of your body. No, you guys are a team! Treat your crew with the greatest respect and They will serve you with the same. Like A faithful friend A loving spouse A co-worker you just couldn't live without All these relationships take time, maintenance and plenty of mistakes But if you're listening to your body In its own language Responding as best you can To feel good and fed and rested and stretched It's an experience you'd want to believe Good afternoon It's the Brain here! I'm putting out a satisfaction survey to all areas of the body. Do let me know how I might make your work environment more comfortable, so that we might work more efficiently together. Yours neurologically, -

Listening to your body is dangerous because your body is wholly concerned with what it wants, not what is good for you. Crossing a desert, your body will constantly demand water, but if you give it water, it shouts, "Water is available! I want more! and you are lost! Your body shouts, "Food is available! I want more!" which is why your brain is at the top of your head! Aloha! Rico

Thanks Rico! I did previously have this line included: "What does your body want and why does it want it?" When I stop and search myself for the "why", I am better able to make an informed decision. I may work the question back in!
