Cherish Your Body

Take good care of your body, it’s the only one you have. 

Get enough sleep, maintain proper nutrition, use premium skincare products and exercise regularly. It’s your body.  Embrace it, love it, pamper it and adore it. You are a unique human being.  You are like no one else, but yourself!

Say this prayer when you forget you have been divinely created.

Thank You, God, for the body You have given me.
Most of the time I take my health for granted.
I forget how fortunate I am to live without pain or disability,
how blessed I am to be able to see and hear and walk and eat. I forget that this body of mine, with all its imperfections is a gift from You.

When I am critical of my appearance, remind me, God, that I am created in Your holy image.
If I become jealous of someone else’s appearance,
teach me to treasure my unique form.

Help me, God, to care for my body.
Teach me to refrain from any action that will bring harm to me.
If I fall prey to a self-destructive habit,
fill me with the strength to conquer my cravings.

Lead me to use my body wisely, God.
Guide my every limb, God, to perform acts of compassion and kindness.

I thank You, God, for creating me as I am. Amen.
