What is the point of having the wealth of the world, but you don’t have the health to enjoy it?
What are your physical conditions at the moment? I.e. within reasonable weight, reasonable blood pressure ranges, good heart function, adequate sleeps, good stamina and having regular exercises? Are you treating your own body with the best care or are you abusing it without even knowing it. Are you noticing the signals your body is showing you? And if your body is speaking to you right now, what is it saying?
Don’t deny it, you hear what it is saying. Just accept what you hear.
There are many health articles, exercise programs and recommended supplements out there available, all with an aim to keep you healthy. What is the use if you neglect to hear the voices from your body, neglect to care for your own health? You may scarify own sleeping time and body resting time a little for your career; or spoil your liver a little in exchange of drinking pleasure; or pollute your lung a bit just to enjoy the pleasure nicotine brings. Ultimately it’s your body, your health, you are responsible and you decide. But you cannot ignore the message your body is communicating.
If you have been driving the night shifts for a while already, working under high level of stress and pressure, or … etc (you will find out what matters for you), this is the moment to be aware and decide if this is what you are willing to scarify your health in exchange of what you are getting in return. No one will know your body health as much as you do (perhaps your doctor) and no one will care your body health as much as you do.
If you don’t take care of your own body health, who will?
Today I love myself by: (read the below aloud 3 times and listen to what you read)
I listen and be aware of the signals and voices from my body, I take cautions and I act before it is too late; my body health is as important to me as my mental health, I take priority in taking good care of my body.
Today’s home work:
List out the signals and voices that your body has been trying to tell you, i.e. not sleeping enough, random headaches, always thirsty, fast breathing…etc; find out the reasons behind and see how you could change the situation.
Encouragement for myself:
