In my private groups I often hear; “I’m pregnant so I need all the nutrition I can get”. “I’m nursing, so what brand of protein powder is safe?” etc.
Isn’t it interesting how we as mothers and women find it easier to be protective over our bodies for the people we love.
What if we decided to ALWAYS treat our body as if it were supplying life for someone we love…because it is!
It’s so easy to neglect ourselves, or put our needs off until later… When I’m trying to make a choice in my life, whether nutrition, relationships etc. that will directly affect ME….I have to ask myself: “Would I want my daughter in this situation? In this relationship? Staying up too late? Eating fast food two days in a row?” It’s so simple to identify healthy behavior, and relationships when we imagine our own children experiencing them instead of us.
It’s very easy to use moderation with food, and sleep when we give ourself the same advice, rules, and love we give to our own children.
Just a few thoughts.
