Everyday for the next year I will be posting a new Inspirational Rule to consider living by. I hope you enjoy.
Rule #28 11/12/15
Your Body is Your Temple.
I know your days are busy and most of us work above and beyond the 40 hour work week. When there is no work there are children, pets, home responsibilities, family and the list goes on and on. Too often we forget about ourselves in this process and we make excuses why we do not have time to take care of ourselves. While it is ever important to serve others needs and be there for them, it does us no good forgetting about ourselves in the process.
God has gifted us a beautiful vessel to be the captains of; our bodies. Having a clear mind and heart comes from being in good health. What we eat, how we exercise, the mental breaks we take for ourselves - all make up the temple that we have to live in for the entire duration of our lives. Your body is your temple, it is your permanent home and how you treat it is a direct reflection of how much love and respect you have for yourself. Treat it with kindness and love, nurture yourself often not only with what you choose to consume, but who you choose to allow access, as well as how you choose to speak about yourself.
Think of it this way; your body is your permanent living residence, if you own a home or ever dreamed of owning a home, you know the responsibilities that comes with being a home owner. It requires maintenance, cleaning, furnishings - when you have a house you always look to make it look its best, so why would you put in any less effort toward your body than you would a real home. ~Will "Story" Rivera
