Life Lessons: Wisdom Wednesday: Tune in to your body and what it's telling you

Tune in to your body and what it's...

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - What can your body tell you about your health and well being? Experts say our bodies give us all kinds of information but the problem is we don't always listen. In our fast paced busy lives, we can sometimes ignore signals from our bodies in our quest to forge ahead and get things done or maybe we make an active choice to ignore certain signals.  But health experts say it's essential we dial in for our own physical and mental well being. WFMZ's Nancy Werteen asked women to weigh in on their thoughts about this topic in her Wisdom Wednesday series.

"Tuning in to your body is really a way of tuning in to what you're feeling. We live in such a busy busy world.  We've created a society where we're sort of living from here up so we're thinking all the time and we're dealing with devices which aren't mirroring our emotions so we've created this very intellectual way of living where we're thinking all the time, we're not feeling."

"As a mother, I tried to do so much for everybody all the time that sometimes I wasn't taking care of myself. And I have learned since shawn was sick and we lost him that you have to take time for yourself. "

"For me (that's it) finding that time to rest and also realizing that I'm worth the rest. That I don't have to run around and work, work, work-that resting is just as important as accomplishing things :32 and sometimes I find challenge in assessing that value in being able to rest and take care of myself so when I think about how to tune in to your body that's definitely number."

"So trying to develop that consciousness of what are you feeling is really important and there are lots of ways you can do it, you can become more aware but you can also tap into your body using exercise or massage, even just creating that awarenss of what am I feeling. "
