The body knows...

Meditation teachers are always encouraging participants to sense into their bodies. There are lots of reasons for this, and one of the cool things about mindfulness is learning the value of that advice based on your own experience as your practice deepens. But if you need some motivation, enjoy this quote from the wonderful book The Mindful Way Through Depression by Mark Williams, et. al.:

“The close links between the body and emotion mean that our bodies function as highly sensitive emotion detectors. They are giving us moment-to-moment readouts of our emotional state. Of course most of us aren’t paying attention. We’re too busy thinking.”
