Establishing a healthy dialogue between our mind and body cultivates a balance as they are inextricably connected. Our optimal state of dynamic balance comes naturally when we listen to our body with love and respect and make choices that support our well being. Often we find ourselves unbalanced yet do not listen to our body the way we should, as we try to keep up with our own expectations of what perfection is. There have always been external pressures of what we think we should be however with social media the illusion is unavoidable affecting both men and women of all ages.
