Running not only invites me to listen to my body, but it often demands that I do so. Every bit of agony and ecstasy, every sore and stretched muscle, every breath and gasp and feeling of “can I keep going?” only to discover that yes, I’m fact, I can.
And whether you run or not, the invitation is the same: listen to your body. There is more to “you” than the mind that is processing these words. You are all of you, not just a disembodied collection of neurons and synapses.
Embrace your flesh. Live into your bones. And listen to your body.
- How often do you listen to your body?
- What does it mean for you to embrace your flesh and live into your bones?
