Treat yourself with care

on July 27, 2014

“Your body is precious. It is your vehicle for awakening. Treat it with care.” ~Buddha

Words from the master!  So important to look after yourself … if you can’t do that, then can you really look after others?

In yoga we have the concept of ‘Ahimsa’ interpreted as non-violence – to yourself and others.  If we live with the concept of ahimsa then we treat our bodies with kindness – from eating nourish food, to a good programme of exercise …. and of course some lovely yoga!

Some people use the phrase ‘your body is a temple’ and I guess this is a similar concept – treat your body with respect – I wouldn’t go so far as to say ‘worship it’ … but certainly look after it.
