Our bodies are miraculous gifts from God that should be treasured and protected. Our culture worships external bodily perfection, and we all struggle in some way with that expectation of perfection: If only I were taller, smaller, prettier, younger, older, stronger.
We rarely take the time to appreciate and to care for the entire, exquisite body that we have been given. Now is the time to reclaim responsibility for our healthy bodies. We use our bodies (and brains) to work, learn, have fun, love, communicate and express ourselves. Self-care is an investment in our future.
Practice self-care by listening to your body, being knowledgeable about your health, living a healthy lifestyle and planning for healthy improvements. Use your healthy body to honor and serve God!
