My body is the only one I'm granted.
Today I choose to honor my body temple with nourishing foods, cleansing breaths, and peaceful moments.
I am given this one set of muscles, this one set of bones. I will coddle and care for the freedom of movement they grant me. I will be grateful for the skin I live in.
Today I recognize the beauty that is the human form, in everyone I meet. This is a precious life, and I will care for the vehicle that carries me through my days and nights.
I will not feel selfish in choosing healthy rest when my body requires it. I will not ignore my body when it longs to stretch or run or balance or climb.
Today I choose nourishment. Today I feel healthy and strong.
