Symptoms- the messengers of our internal world
There are many factors that contribute to unwanted skin conditions and physical pain and tension.
Emotions are one of those factors, one that isn't talked about enough.
Not just the emotions you experienced this morning or last week.
There could be emotional trauma stored in your body for years and years- and if you don't face it, feel it and start to heal it, it could manifest into something you can no longer ignore.
Physical symptoms could be your body's way of telling you that it is time to deal with the root problem, whatever it may be.
The body has an amazing ability to communicate our internal imbalances.
Don't get frustrated with inflammation, listen to it.
It is trying to tell you something, to teach you something...When you are ready to face and let go of your deepest traumas- the body can start to heal.
Many of us are still holding onto regret, fear resentment and shame from our past.
Let go of what no longer serves you.
Forgive yourself and others for things that cannot be changed.
BRING YOUR MIND AND BODY BACK TO BALANCE
Step 1. Practice gratitude daily, start by thinking of 3 things you are grateful for every morning before you get out of bed, accompanied with 3 deep breaths.
Step 2. Design a morning ritual. Whether you are employed, self-employed, stay at home mum/dad...try to start your day by doing something for yourself as often as you can (enjoy a healthy tea, meditate, 5 minutes of yoga, skincare routine etc.).
Step 3. Do what is right, not what is easy. It is important to get out of your comfort zone from time to time. This takes motivation and discipline. Have a cold shower, go for a walk when you want to be lazy, make the effort to create a nutritious meal instead of getting take-away. The best part? You will never regret it!
Step 4. Listen to your body and give it what it needs- deep down we all know what we need when we aren't feeling our best and its usually something simple like more water or more sleep! But if its something more complex, perhaps something you aren’t ready to face- it is time to take action. Don't ignore the warning signs and don't suppress your symptoms, they will only manifest into something worse.
