At what age do we begin making that shift from wonder to judgment about our bodies?
Can you remember?
Maybe a kid at school told you your nose was too big? And all of a sudden that wonderful nose that could do all those neat things - sniff, sneeze, make weird sounds - changed.
It was no longer perfect.
Maybe you started noticing other noses and began a 'nose competition'… You know, who had the 'better' nose…

CHECK OUT THIS INTERESTING WAY TO CHANGE BODY AWARENESS:
The idea is to focus on the parts of your body in a non-judgmental way...
Breathing deeply, start with you toes.
Look at them.
Can you wiggle them? Try it.
Now bend them up and bend them down. .. Watch the way they move.
Actually pretty amazing, isn't it?
What would life be like without toes?
Say "Thank you toes - you are part of the miracle that allows me to stand."
Now continue through the rest of your body.
Imagine you are one of those aliens from another planet observing how the human body works. Intriguing…
Anytime you become judgmental (bullying- mean!) or start making comparisons with someone else (competition- yikes!) give yourself a little imaginary shake and say "Stop it!"
This is about appreciation for the miracle of these bodies that take us through the day!
