Appropriateness the deity way: association vs. bring to bear - application


I was excited to hear the admired speakers at the Fall 2004 Omega Institute Conference. The "biggies" of the women's change such as Gloria Steinem, today's best-selling authors and who's who of empowering women doing inspiring work were. Lucky me!

During one of the panels on body-image, Jane Fonda, the American icon of fitness, who we all look at and admiration what it must be like to have such a "perfect" body, said it has taken her until age 61 to grow to love her body.

I was dumbfounded. "Good God, I don't want to wait that long!" I thought. And hot damn! If SHE has body image issues, and her body is "perfect" by today's standards, then this is actually pointless.

(By the way, Ms. Fonda doesn't look a day over 44 with a body of a 20 year old work-out instructor)

Powerful and flourishing women of all ages collective the same thing; their absolute lack of love and calmness en route for their body leads them to spend a large part of their lives in a continual struggle and argue with it.

The young women in the crowd of almost 2000 also nodded their heads in astonishment and familiarity. In some way it was consoling to see these icons distribution real belongings about their real bodies.

Something's Gotta Change

Have you seen the movie, "As Good As It Gets" with Jack Nicholson? There's a scene where he goes to see his therapist's administrative center and on his way out, he stops to ask the patients coming up in the before you room - "what if this is as good as it gets?" The total room breaks down and starts crying. Kinda funny, but it makes a great point.

Unless you are going to start functioning out like you say you've been denotation to, if not a little changes attractive damn soon, if not you do a bit different, the odds are stacked in favor of your body being as good as it gets right NOW.

Two choices:

1. Agree to that you'll never application commonly and be happy with what it looks like now

2. Elect to take on exercise, but in a whole new way.

Don't exercise. As an alternative just moooove your body.

Exercise conjures associations such as "I have to", "I should", "I will one day, someday, maybe," to name a few. When was the last time we leaped ecstatically towards that!? None of those feel good, right? So cut manually some slack and be concerned about a few things: 1. Get rid of shoulds 2. Go for development vs. exercise

Delete the word "should" from your vocabulary. Immediately. Right now. Do it. Have your associates forbid you to use it! Do anything it takes! It does you no good. Elect the word "could" instead.

Could vs. Should

Using the word "could" vs. "should" implies choice. After all, isn't that the truth? You do have the choice, you can decide to move your body and you can decide on to take accountability for not shaking your thing. You made the choices that got you here. Sorry, it's bad news, I know. The good part is that once you get clear what's happened and acknowledge what IS, you can move forward.

I had a client who just wouldn't exercise, in spite of her constant discussion and belligerent about it. So I absolute to not call it application any longer and take a another approach. She instantaneously lit up.

Together we fashioned a "movement menu. " Ah? sounds delicious and curiously inviting, yes? Now you know you're on the right track if your ambiance a bit piqued.

Action Tip: For now, just swim about in the idea of "movement vs. exercise". Let by hand certainly get it. Get how you are entirely able to determine and construct ways to move your body that feel good and are good for you. You may find that you'll be drawn to ways you before now move your body - walking, dancing, dawn stretch, attractive the stairs. It's all good.
