Our body is a temple. Being born as a woman and in woman’s body is a great privilege. If you are born a woman, that means you are blessed with two most amazing gifts – the ability to bring life to this world and the skill to bring beauty to every space. When we fully realize it, we can start appreciating our bodies, and how important it is to nourish and maintain them in a healthy and beautiful state.
If you don’t have time to make yourself pretty, explaining it with the fact that you are too busy with more important things – spirituality, business or family, you are actually neglecting what you have been gifted. That is the sign of not loving yourself enough. It is also a sign of lack of self-respect and laziness.
According to ancient Vedic knowledge, it is a blessing, to be born as a woman. It becomes our duty to take care of our body and cultivate beauty for the sake of everyone around us. It can also be a pleasure, if you really remember that this is the act of self-love. And if your body is healthy and beautiful, so is your soul.
Let’s look at the habits for woman’s body that show self-love and self-respect.
Six Body Habits of Self-Love
1. Habit of good sleep.
This is the most important habit and the biggest secret to woman’s beauty and health. If you have enough sleep, you will look younger, feel better and you will be able to serve the world around you the better way. It is so very nourishing for the harmony between your mind and your heart too. The lack of sleep can lead to depression, health issues, dark circles under the eyes, hormonal imbalances and unnecessary wrinkles. If you love yourself – sleep enough.
2. Habit of good food.
Eating healthy is an easy task right now, you only need to make this choice. There are so many wonderful healthy alternatives available right now everywhere. Remember, you are what you eat. And for a woman especially, food should be not only healthy but also tasty – tasty looking, tasty smelling and tasty feeling. When you eat, make sure you have a culinary masterpiece on your plate, whether you cook it yourself or eat out. When you consume beauty, you become it. If you love yourself – eat good.
3. Habit of being soigné.
Taking good care of yourself, or being soigné, means you actually take care of your body regularly. You have a habit of having your nails polished, your hair groomed and your face clean and pretty. You have a habit of making sure your skin is healthy and glowing, and you smell good. No matter the circumstances, you represent beauty with all that you are. Not for society, not for a man or for anyone else, but for yourself. If you love yourself – look beautiful and be soigné.
4. Habit of having enough rest.
When you are tired, you should be able to recognize it and have some rest. Do not push yourself, you will end up depleting yourself and your body, and that is the opposite of self-love. Do not try to be a hero, stop and enjoy some relaxation time. If anything, you will be even more productive after that. Also, the lack of rest leads to depression, and to additional weight. If you love yourself – have good rest.
5. Habit of moving.
Female’s body needs good healthy movement. However we shouldn’t deplete ourselves with over-exertion. Just enough to make our energy shift and flow better again. So remember that moderation is the key. Moving will help you get rid of that extra piece of cake, but it will also take away sadness or moodiness, and unnecessary worries that women often have. Moving activates our hormones of happiness. Just a little bit of dancing or jumping can already make you feel better. If you love yourself – move around.
6. Habit of making love when you want.
Yes, this one is very important too. When you do that when you want it, and not when someone else wants it or because it is time, you show and cultivate self-value and self-respect. Listen to your body’s needs and respect them. Making love is an act of pleasure that you give to your body as a gift and the way to thank it for what it is doing to you, daily. And only when we truly enjoy it we can also give pleasure to our partner. Do not go against your desires. If you love yourself – love another person when you want it and don’t go against your body wishes.
The most important thing here is to always listen, very carefully, and then go and apply all that in real life. Show your self-love on a daily manner, and you will bloom all the time like the precious flower that you are.
