Welcome to my newest blog – Body Temple! I do believe my body is a temple. I’m not a particular fan of reincarnation, so I plan on living a long time and getting the most out of my body. I try to eat healthily and exercise. I minimize the amount of junk I eat, including meat. I trim away my split ends, and I don’t use hot tools or too much product on my hair. Often, I put on a bit of makeup and sometimes I wear none at all.
But as I age, I have slowly dawned on the idea that I do not take outstanding care of my temple. The floor has cracked and the roof leaks. I have reduced eating habits and struggle to keep moving.
Back in January, I vowed not to make any resolutions. Resolutions don’t work. I set an intention to move more. And I persevered through it for a bit and sat on the bench too much.
As March comes, I want to find balance. Through this blog, I will explore different points of wellness. Ways to care for the temple. When the roof leaks and the crying continue perhaps a mental health post; or when the floor cracks and the feet are sore may be a physical care post. Or maybe something else will come up. Let’s step on the path and see what is ahead.
