Look Better Naked By Training Your Mind

Mindfulness doesn’t have to be all hippy dippy, it’s just about being aware of your habits, your behaviours and your actions.

By being aware or ‘mindful’ of your emotions and actions you can begin to see if they are helping you or hindering you in moving closer to your goals and then it gives you a starting point for change.

It’s impossible to separate mind from body. If one is happy & healthy so will the other one be and vice versa.

Equally when you are looking to change your body you will have to change the way you think, feel, act etc too as it’s your thoughts and actions that have led you to the point you are at now.

Everyone has a slightly different reason to want to get in shape. Yours could be

– to relieve stress
– to have more energy
– to have the stamina to play with the kids
– to live a longer life so that you can see your grandchildren
– or maybe you want to look better naked

When I first wrote this article Valentines day was fast approaching.

For some of you, this might mean you were on ‘a promise’ but sometimes that’s not all it’s cracked up to be for you and your good lady.

If you hate the way you look naked, you feel fat, unattractive and not in the least bit sexy then it can be a very daunting thing.

We all know there is media pressure for women to look a certain way but the same is true of men and I know we put that pressure on ourselves too.

An unhealthy body image & behaviours (exercise & diet) will lead to a body you aren’t happy with and this can seriously affect your relationship.

If you’re married you might have said ‘With my body I honour you’.

Does the way you currently look and feel reflect the amount you honour your wife & partner?

Sadly we can’t all look like Becks but the more self respect we have, the more our relationships will grow stronger emotionally and physically.

So I would invite you to just be mindful of the emotional but also physical side of your relationship. Ask yourself if improving the way you look but also the way you FEEL about yourself will improve your relationship?

After all –

‘A woman needs to feel loved to want sex where as a man needs sex to feel loved’.

While that might not be true for everyone, it just goes to show that you can’t really separate the mind and body.

Whatever you have planned this week, enjoy it, be present, be mindful and have fun!
