Because This Is Your Life

Here’s something that I haven’t spoken about too often with you.

The surprising thing about this is the fact that my background and what has led me to where I am today is actually centered around this very thing.

What I’m referring to is the importance of your physical health.

With that being said I’d like to say a little more about that today but in a different way.

Simply put, I want to say and have you realize how special it is for you to be alive and the reason for that is because of your physical health.

As a result, this is something for you to give a very special thanks for.

Where can you start?

Let me give you an example of what I do.

Every night before I go to sleep and every day right after I wake up I have a series of affirmations and gratitudes that I journal (on my computer) and as part of my meditation.

Every single time I begin, whether it’s the journaling or the beginning of my meditation, I start with the following…

“I am so gifted, grateful and thankful because I am alive and in perfect health.”

The reason I start with this is because it is my way of acknowledging and being grateful and thankful for my physical health.

This is something I certainly appreciate and do not take for granted.

It is wise that you do something similar, whatever feels comfortable for you, to be thankful and grateful for regarding your body and physical health.

Another way of showing my appreciation is by taking care of my body and physical health. This includes working out, which is something I’ve been doing since I was 15. It also includes being very aware of what I’m eating, what I drink (water only) and getting no less than 7-8 hours of sleep.

That’s what I do. For you, do what works best and what you feel comfortable with. If you’d rather walk, then walk but do some form of exercise. The same is true with how you eat and sleep. Different things work for different people.

The main point I want to make is for you to take care of your body and physical health. Your body is always giving you feedback in the form of signs and symptoms as to whether you’re being grateful and thankful.

No matter how you look at it, your body and physical health is the central point of everything you do.

Not only that but it’s also giving you that feedback to get you to realize the magnificence of who you are. It does this by giving back to you what you give it.

When you’re grateful and appreciate the many different things in your life, your body responds and rewards you.

Even when things are not going the way you would like them to, always take the time to give back to your physical health.

No matter what is going on in your life, you can always overcome it and the most powerful way to begin doing that is by having optimal physical health.

Be grateful for who you are. Be grateful for those around you…

And be grateful for the fact that you’re alive and contributing so much to the world through your amazing uniqueness.
