Listening to Your Body's Signals

In the last video, Jennifer discussed the importance of paying attention to the signals your body sends. This week she begins to unpack a four step process to interpret your body's signals.

The first step in this process is listening to symptoms as if they are sending you a message, because they are.

For example, you might think your headache is just a headache, something easily treated with Tylenol or Ibuprofen so you can move on with your day. Before you grab that pill bottle, think about what you headache may actually be trying to tell you. Ask yourself questions to see if there is something more important that you need to pay attention to.

These questions can help you take a moment to listen to your body and ensure that you are aware of any bigger messages it may be trying to send. Paying attention to the small signals can help you avoid the bigger, life threatening ones by recognizing problems early, before they escalate.
