Are You Comfortable in Your Own Skin?

by Leisa on April 8, 2009

Following on from my blog post a week ago “What Did We Do Before Mobiles?” I have another observation that comes up a lot when I “people watch” on my afternoon walks – and that is that most people don’t look comfortable in their own skin.

If you just look around you will notice quite clearly the discomfort that people are living with day to day and are accepting as their lot in life. They are not usually doing much about it either – or maybe they just don’t know what to do?

One of the most common problems I see is pain, or misalignment of the body causing a person to limp, walk awkwardly or not carry themselves with a straight spine and upright posture.  I’m see hips turned out, one shoulder higher than the other, people swinging an arm at an unnatural angle, stooped shoulders and an abundance of people looking like it takes great effort just to walk.  I’m sure a lot of pain, stiffness and misalignment could be improved with a good diet, stronger muscle tone, weight loss and some type of corrective work such as Chiropractic, Massage, Alexander Technique, Kinesiology, Rolfing or Feldenkrais.

Along with the noticeable physical state many are in – I also see anger and unhappiness on so many faces.  No smile hello as we walk by, but a permanent scowl and pained look are much more common.

It is sad to see that so many people don’t feel full of energy, vibrant and pain free with a love and enjoyment of life.  When we do meet these type of people they stand out, we are drawn to their vitality and it makes us feel good just to be around them.

I think one of the most important things we can do is to self-evaluate and be honest about where we are at physically, mentally and spiritually.  Ask ourselves the hard questions, look at our life objectively and see what might need to change.  The education, the information, the knowledge and the support is not hard to find.

It is possible to feel not just comfortable in our own skin – but amazingly alive and grateful for every wonderful day.

But the hard part can be realising we’re worth it, and then doing what it takes to get there, knowing that it is all up to you – you are the only one with the power to change your own life. Just do it!

Absolutely! There is the inner and the outer components when it comes to being comfortable in your own skin and you make a great observation. So many people either visually or energetically project un-comfort. That can be different than obvious discomfort because it isn’t as apparent. It can be a little something something within them. A limiting belief that has kept them playing small. A way of being that does fit who they really are. A compromised life because of trying to play by someone else’s rules.

Excellent post…

I agree, the average person walking down the street looking very lethargic. I think there are many reasons, but a great solution is to take vitamins, and get proper exercise. This will definitely boost your energy level.

Thanks Paula, I appreciate your reply. It is sad to see so many people with bloated out of shape bodies and sadness on their faces when it could all so easily be changed with a bit of dedication to eating and living differently. My mission is to help as many people realise that as possible!

Thanks for you comments. Most people would notice immediate improvments were they to eat well and exercise regularly – this doesn’t just boost the physical health, but is a great mental health booster as well. I am not big on lots of supplements myself, but use mainly whole organic foods and superfoods to bring nutrition levels up.
