I honor myself by exercising my physical body and by stretching my mind.
I take care of my body by exercising regularly, because of this I am healthy and strong. I take the time to stretch my mind by learning, praying, and meditating. When I open my mind to new ideas and expressive thought I am building a better me.
When I take time to exercise both my body and mind, I am honoring my Creator by taking care of the wonderful gift of life. Life is an incredible gift. And I deserve to respect this gift, because I am worth it.
Whether I am running on a treadmill at the gym or in a swimming class, when I exercise my body I am acknowledging that I respect myself. Reading books, taking classes, praying, and meditating are ways that I expand and exercise my mind. I am whole and I feel good when I exercise.
Exercising my body and my mind allows me to unite with my Creator in a connected way. My body and my mind are of equal importance and honoring this gift helps me to grow and become a more centered being. When I run, I am free. When I learn, I am lifted. When I honor my wholeness of mind and body, I am at peace.
Today I will respect and honor myself by exercising my body and my mind because this is how I can show myself love.
