Treating Your Body Right – Robin Westen on The Empowerment Show
“My body is not me. Its mine.” Dahn Yoga
How are you treating the vessel carrying you around? Are you giving it love and care or are you filling it with no so good things?
In this episode we learn the importance of conscious eating and taking the time to cleanse our digestive system. Caring for our bodies also includes clearing our minds through meditation, using deep breathing for stress relief, releasing our monkey mind chatter, and acknowledging our emotions without judgment.
Robin Westen talks about having a respect for our bodies and learning how to care for it properly. Robin received an Emmy Award for the ABC health show FYI.
