Your body cannot serve you well when you think negative thoughts about it. In fact it is estimated that between 90 and 95% of all health problems originate with negative emotion!

Your body is doing the best it can for you, and it is the only place you have to live! Honor it today using the following 3 tips:

* Do your best to dismiss any negative images or physical frustrations that come to mind today about your body.

* Find at least one thing today that you appreciate about your body and focus on that every time a negative thought arises.

* Take at least 10 minutes today to exercise! Exercise increases self esteem and encourages positive body image.

The society we live in detracts from healthy body image and integrity in many ways. With practice we can retrain our minds and develop a more easy and natural relationship with our bodies. It just might be the most important preventative medicine we ever practice.
