We may have a gut feeling, or heart feeling, that it is time to make a change for our health. Sometimes we also need strong reasons to put that feeling into action. I find it is easier to have the mental body on my side when making a life change. So I turn to Dr. Google to convince myself. But when researching a new topic, it can be confusing. Often there is too much information and it is conflicting. Who do we trust? How do we decipher who has done their homework and has our best interests at heart?
As we have been building our new healthy breast practice, one of my goals has been to give you the tools to start - and keep - moving forward until this practice becomes a habit. One of the ways I have found to keep practices moving forward is to know what is my Why. Why is this important to me? Why does it matter? I think of the line from “The Invitation” by Oriah Mountain Dreamer:
"It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you, from the inside, when all else falls away.”
When this Challenge falls away on Valentine’s Day, what will sustain your practice?
Thank you so much for joining the Love Your Breast Friends Bra-Free Challenge!
Starting February 4th, there will be 11 daily posts through Valentine's Day. These messages will include bra-free fashion tips, links to books, research articles or videos about breast health and how bras are NOT always helpful. I will also share my personal story with my challenge getting out of my bra and how I sometimes still struggle with this new healthy breast practice.
