Today’s prompt is:
Body integration. This year, when did you feel the most integrated with your body? Did you have a moment where there wasn’t mind and body, but simply a cohesive YOU, alive and present?
The sad thing is that I have no idea how to respond to this post. I’m usually living in my brain, trying to ignore that my body exists since I’m so damn ashamed of it. Pitiful, right?
I suppose my best answer would be when I’m trying to go to sleep. I used to be a big insomniac, but this year I started using a few meditative strategies, such as allowing each part of my body to relax, one at a time. In these moments, I actually acknowledge every part of my body (or every part until I fall asleep, at least) and feel like a whole person as I drift off to sleep.
