Be Nice to Your Body You Only Get One!

Hello Dear Reader,

As you resolve to do any number of things for your 2015 New Year's Resolutions, why not resolve to be nice to your body? We pluck, we scrub, we peel, we laser, we detox, we metabolic shock, we torture ourselves with every newfangled crazy fad that comes our way all in the hopes of producing some "better" body.

Instead of resolving to use the  usual torture devices or even the new ones, resolve to be nice to your body. Many Christians, and I am one of those, believe that your body is the temple that houses the holy spirit. Why not treat your body accordingly? If you are spiritual in one form or another, you might believe that your body houses your soul or your spirit. Why not treat it accordingly?

In the words of C.S. Lewis, "You do not have a soul. You are a Soul."

Be kind to your body my darling. You only get one.  

Choose what you eat as an act of kindness towards yourself. Choose to exercise as an act of kindness. Choose to go to bed on-time as an act of kindness. Don't succumb to the latest fad only to be guilt-ridden when you cannot sustain that which was never really healthy in the first place. Choose kindness and start with you!


  1. Good advice. One that is often not learned until one is much older, and almost always just a little too late. Good reminder to take care of ourselves.

  2. Great post! Thank you for linking up on Motivational Monday, hope you will join us again!
