Seven Steps To a More Beautiful You Series: Step #5 - Take Care of Your Temple

If you have children, you try your best to protect them. You want to give them the best in life and you want them to be happy, right? Well, why not treat yourself - your body - with the same care and respect?

Here in the U.S. so many women have body issues that stem from a disrespect for their bodies. A woman’s body is a temple. The body is a Divine being that is to house a Divine Spirit - your Spirit.

You can take care of your temple not just by exercising - which I mentioned in step #2 - but by eating healthy foods and having the discipline to eat just enough so that you’re satisfied. Taking care of your temple also means not abusing drugs, alcohol, or becoming addicted to toxic things like cigarettes.

Here are some affirmations you can say to yourself to help you take care of your body:
  • My body is a temple that deserves the utmost care
  • I take care of my body and my body takes care of me
  • I eat when I need to and not because I want to
  • I am a Divine Being
