Physical Limits

Our own physical body possesses a wisdom which we who inhabits the body lack. We give it orders which make no sense.

Sometimes the requests we make of our bodies go over and above the call of duty and outside the realm of healthy discipline.

Missing sleeps, eating poorly, sitting at an unhealthy work station, rarely exercising, or lifting something that is too heavy - all can result in bad health or injury.

The body's desires are fairly straightforward: nourishment, shelter, self-care, rest, and movement.

It's not surprising that those elements make for a balanced life for the soul, too.

When we honour and respect what our body needs to stay healthy, we find ourselves living a life that is healthier for our soul and mind as well. So, be more alert to our physical needs.
