How often are you your biggest cheerleader?
How often are you your worst critic?
Why does it seem easier to be proud of your best friend than of yourself? We know why.
It’s because you have expectations of yourself to be the perfect version of you.
But here’s the thing… you’re setting yourself up for failure because the perfect version of you doesn’t exist.
It never has and it never will.
What if instead of aiming for some idea of perfection, you simply showed up exactly as you are…
What if, you exactly as you are could be amazing… no changes required.
This mindset of feeling confident within yourself doesn’t happen from changing external features, or gaining some kind of material possession…
It happens when you decide to see things differently… it happens when YOU decide to accept yourself exactly as you are.
For us, it’s a practice. Day to day, moment to moment. We’ve found that the best tool to create these feelings of acceptance toward yourself needs to be a tool that gets you BACK in your body and away from your thoughts.
This is the power of or MerryBody Yoga, Pilates and Meditation… mindful practices that remind you of just how amazing your body is and just how amazing you are. It creates some space for you to simply be and to let go of the monkey mind that tries to tell you that you need to be something other than who you already are.
For you, it might be walking in nature, dancing around to your favourite tune, a good book, a chat with a friend or a long hug.
Find something that puts you back into your body so you can start to calm the chaos of the mind.
If you think maybe Yoga, Pilates or Meditation might be for you, then try MerryBody for 7 days – if you like it, stick around, if you don’t, simply cancel. Your Free Trial is over here.
