“My body is a gift to me from my Higher Power. Maintaining it in the best possible condition is my response to God’s gift… Thank You for my body.” — Food for Thought
We don’t talk too much about taking care of our body in our program. But without the body we wouldn’t exist. Prior to recovery, I treated my body like a punching bag, testing how hard I could abuse it without making me sick or dying. These days, I spend a fair amount of time thinking about my health and taking actions to stay healthy. I eat better foods in smaller portions, and I stretch and exercise almost every day. I certainly don’t do it perfectly. However, being consistently kind to my body pays off big dividends in both my self-esteem and my attitude. And when I’m able to love myself and act kindly towards others, abundance in every area flows into me and ILML!
