How to Show Love for Your Body – StrongBlackWoman

Say this out loud: My body is an amazing gift that I treasure with every breath I take.

If that feels strange to read, even stranger to say,  that means its way past time that you start affirming that your body is indeed amazing! Start showing appreciation for your strong, hardworking, amazing, adaptable body by giving it the rest it needs to survive and thrive.

My body requires rest to repair itself and function at a high level. I am willing to give my body the opportunity to perform these tasks. I regularly get the proper amount of sleep so I can be at my best. I start each day feeling refreshed and full of energy.

I take excellent care of my body. I eat healthy, exercise often, and rest well.

My health is extremely important to me. Without good health, everything in life is more difficult, if not impossible to enjoy.

Even when I am extremely busy, I still find the time to get enough sleep. I can always find the time because rest is a priority in my life. I am focused on caring for my body.

Good physical health is a blessing that I respect and appreciate. I do whatever is necessary to ensure my physical health and well-being. I function at a higher level in all facets of my life when I am well-rested.

Today, I reaffirm my commitment to giving my body everything it needs to be at its best. Rest is a priority for me. I am fully committed to showing love for my body by giving it the rest it requires.
