Love Your Body

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Love your body, it was this wonderful and perfectly created masterpiece, with a heart that can circulate your blood around your body more than 1000 times a day, with bones that are 4 times more stronger than concrete and that can replace one billion cells each hour.

Not only that but think back over your life so fall with all the ups and downs, good times and bad, it was this body that made your heart skip a beat when your first fell in love, and walked you down to the podium to receive your degree.

It was this body that helped you take your first steps and lifted you back up again when you fell. It was this body that helped you coordinate your arms and legs in rhythm to learn how to swim. This body that with your eyes and fingers learnt how to read and write opening up the world of education and opportunities.

All too often we get caught up in the hussle and bussle of life, with work and meeting deadlines, taking care of our partners and kids, and making time for everyone but not ourselves. Take a moment to think of how precious our bodies are and no matter what your size be thankful for yours, love it and care for it. Make a point to schedule time to be more active, take a walk and enjoy life’s small pleasures, smelling the flowers, and hearing the breeze. Make time to cook more and enjoy meals with friends and family and think of the choices you make to nourish your precious body to keep it healthy and strong for years to come.
