"The body is a sacred garment. It's your first and last garment; it is what you enter life in and what you depart life with, and it should be treated with honour." - Martha Graham.

How will you honour your body this week? Consider a bubble bath, pedicure, stretch class, long walk, loving sex, lots of sleep, nutritious food, or relaxing massage.

Above all, treat your body with love and care - because if you don't, then who will?

I describe the pain of not loving your body - and struggling with a huge gap between what you see when you look in the mirror and what others see - in my latest article:
Tyra Banks Tackles Body Dysmorphic Disorder
“I feel like a monster and I can’t stand to be touched,” said a woman on Tyra’s show last week. “I can’t talk to my boyfriend, I can’t trust him, and I’m scared he’ll leave me.”

Visit the forum for an update on a woman who's become near and dear to my heart - she's fighting anorexia and I think she's winning!

Enjoy this week, and be calm as the holidays approach,
Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen, Body Image Editor
