Be in Tune with Your Body

  • Keep track of your periods, especially noting longer cycles or the absence of periods.
  • Keep hydrated, replenishing your body with extra fluids after bouts of exercise.
  • After exercise, your hunger may not immediately be present. Make sure to supply your body with the calories it needs after a workout (despite having a decreased appetite).
  • Satisfy your body’s need for a variety of nutrients by eating a balanced diet of diverse foods as opposed to a bland, repetitive diet.

Accepting your body

  • No two bodies are the same. Avoid comparing your body to your friends or teammates.
  • Focus on what your body can do as opposed to what it looks like. Your body will do amazing things if you listen to it!
  • The media portrayal of the “perfect body type” is what is distorted…NOT YOUR BODY!
