We must first get into WHY listen to your body. It is important because our body communicates to us, at times screams to us what we need to know, we just don’t always listen. Or better put, you may not know how to listen to your body. Our bodies tell us when something is wrong, something is going well, etc. The most important factors to listen to are what is not going well. Certain pains, fatigue, bowel movements, etc. are ways our body shouts to us what action or non action we need to take!
How To Listen To Your Body
Well in order to listen to your body it will take time, conscious effort and consistent practice. There are many things within our body we have ignored and that has lead many of us as I’m sure you can attest to unnecessary health risks, injuries, illnesses and more. I personally am training my first FULL MARATHON as we speak. And I’ve noticed my training has not gone half as well as it was going for my HALF MARATHON training earlier this year. I can hear my body telling me what is going wrong.
What Is Your Body Telling You
Well, your body can be telling you a number of things. For one, I’ll speak from my point of view first, my body is telling me that I’m training wrong for this first marathon. That I am positive of because I’ve been listening to my body for sometime. That and simple logic comparing it to the last training and where I was at proves that. I’ve been spending too much time in the gym, too little time on the track, and my legs are dying because of it. My stamina is fine, if it were stamina alone I could run the 26.2 miles today. No, my legs are giving out after 10, 11 miles, and that’s a terrible sign.
How You Should Start Listening To Your Body
First off, it starts with actually being conscious and wanting to take care of your body. Next, actually put in the work and exercise, start eating better. You don’t have to eat the healthiest food in the world, but be focused when you eat, eat until only about 80 percent full, and take your time when you eat. I know, it’s hard to do. We live in a fast paced world, but you got to do it for yourself. Take 20 minutes, strive for it anyways, for each meal. That alone will help you lose weight and feel better, and allow you to listen to your body. Check out my post on The 20 Minute Meal Guide and learn how you can incorporate it in your daily routine now.

As I said I personally have to make changes based on what my body is telling me. As much as I want to keep making gains at the gym, I have to put that on hold, or curb it a bit, until after I finish this full marathon. For you, well if you listen to your body I’m sure you’ll know what to do next!
