How to "listen to your body"

Blanche and Esther demystify how to "listen to your body."

You always hear about the importance of listening to your body, but how exactly do you do that? Many times it feels like a "fold in the cheese, David" situation where it may feel like everyone talks about it, but there are no specific instructions on what exactly that means.
