Respect of Self and IBS

Posted on

It has been a while since I posted. The clinic is getting busy.

While that has been going on I started to notice about respect. Do you have respect for ourselves to tell the truth to us about our health?

I noticed that when I stopped having respect for myself and not slowing down that my IBS was getting worse. When I put in the time to exercise, get plenty of sleep, and eating healthy I can maintain my IBS better.

What is respecting one’s self? I think it’s a lot of things.

Here are a few examples:

Not telling yourself you are fat or ugly or any other negative comment.

Not saying “yes” to everything.

Knowing your bodies limits each day and not going beyond it.

Not being around people who don’t respect you.

Not undervaluing yourself.

Being true to you. Not changing yourself to fit someone else’s image of who they think you should be.
