Why You Need To Stop Fighting With Your Body

movement Feb 15, 2021

Are you ready for some tough love, beautiful?

Here’s a lesson I have personally learned and continue to teach to my Core Rehab students that I want to share with you:

When pain and discomfort show up in your body, it’s time for you to address it so you can let it go.

Hanging onto it is not serving you!

The power of the mind, breath, and body is so amazing. When you are able to connect all of the pieces together, you are working with your body rather than against it.

*It’s time to listen to what your body is trying to tell you, ladies!*

>>Stop putting fear and resistance around your pain and start creating new habits that will benefit your mind-body connection.<<

I like to think that this is a key factor in my students' success because they are able to experience what's possible for their body by letting go.

I want for you too, friend...but where do you start? Keep reading to learn how to stop fighting with your body and start working with it.

Step One: Be Okay With Where You Are

This can sound easier said than done, but you have to learn to be okay with where you are right now with your body.

I believe that by you being here reading this message means it's just what you need to hear.

The sooner you can learn to embrace where you are the quicker you are able to process what’s going on with your body and learn how to work towards reaching healthier goals.

Step Two: Recognize How You React

If you're a listener to my Core Connections podcast, you know how I *love* to talk about awareness.

Because if you’re not aware of it how are you supposed to do anything about it?!

Once you're able to recognize how you're reacting to the words you are using with your body, you then begin to understand what habits need to be changed.

Step Three: Breathe

I want you to give this a try: breathe in through your nose and see if you can send your breath into the back and sides of your ribs, all the way down into your low back, and even see if it can go to your pelvis, pelvic floor, and hips.

*Recognize* how deep your breath can go.

For many women that I first start working with, their breath stops at their chest. Before they get discouraged, I first take them through steps one and two again. I  then tell them to visualize where they want their breath to go.

It's important to be open-minded to these new techniques so you can begin seeing positive shifts in your body and for yourself.

Are you ready to start taking action working with your body rather than against it?

If so, shoot me a DM @ericaziel and let me know…I’d love to hear from you!
