I Make My Home a Haven of Peace and Harmony

Creating a peaceful and harmonious atmosphere in my home brings me joy. I smile as I see my family following my lead in keeping the peace. Regardless of what happens during the day, I know that I can always find support, comfort, and peace in my home. My home is a sanctuary for my family, our guests, and me.

My home is peaceful because I choose to make it that way. Each day, I focus on peace and serenity rather than allow negative emotions to take control. A happy home is worth working for. I strive to maintain a positive attitude through all situations.

I Have The Patience To Be Strong

I have the patience to be strong through the changes in my life. When the world around me appears unsteady, it would be easy to give in to fear, but my courage rises up and helps me to be patient.

At times, my life is overflowing with great abundance and blessings, but there are times when I must wait patiently. I can be patient because I am confident of what lies ahead.

I am like the farmer who labors hard during the fall and enjoys the fruit of his labor in the spring. There are seasons in my life where I must simply work hard and then wait for my hard work to bring forth the results I desire.

I give myself permission to be healthy in body mind and spirit

I have the freedom to lavishly nourish my body, mind and spirit. It is more than okay for me to pamper my body with massages and skin moisturizers. It is more than okay for me to indulge my mind in a great book. It is more than okay for me to spend time building myself up in prayer.

To nurture my body, I regularly take time to exercise. My exercise routine, combined with a healthy diet, is my recipe for a better me.

I Live a Healthy and Vibrant Life

I am living a vibrant and healthy life.

I live a healthy and vibrant life

I breathe in and know that my life is fit and vivacious because I make it that way.

I love feeling healthy and energetic. I can enjoy every moment of my day because I just feel good. I feel this way because I take care of myself through proper rest, nutrition, and exercise. When I take care of myself, I gain an intense energy and enthusiasm for the day and my life.

There have been times when I didn’t want to exercise, or when I chose unhealthy foods, and that’s okay. That was my yesterday; it doesn’t have to be my today.

I am strengthened and empowered when I do what I need to do to take care of myself. I feel better as my body is nourished and active — I feel alive! The positive energy within me radiates joyfully like the sun.

The sunlight shining from my smile feels like an electric current. My energy is high and I can achieve all my goals. When I am feeling low, I spend a few minutes exercising my body and mind. I then immediately feel recharged. The people around me can feel my energy. It seems that when I am a bright light, others respond positively and they, too, are more vibrant. My positive attitude is contagious!

Today I choose to nourish my body and mind so I may continue to feel healthy and alive. I am taking care of myself so I can be full of life and joy for others.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. When was the last time I felt really alive?
2. When was the last time I felt down? What will I do about it next time?
3. What do I feel like after I exercise and take care of myself?

Healthy Tips to Improve Body and Mind

Even if you look and feel great, there are always steps you can take, every day, to improve your body and mind. It takes constant work to improve your life, even when you have achieved what you believe is your personal best.

So with that said, we all can use some healthy living tips to ensure that we are the best we can be every day.

Healthy Living Tips to Improve Your Body and Mind

It doesn’t matter if you are in perfect shape – or you have created your own unique “shape” over the years – there are always simple strategies that will continue to improve how you look, feel and think. After all, without constantly improving your body and mind, you won’t be able to reach greater heights and experience new things.

The most essential mental and physical health tip is to enjoy quality sleep. Getting enough sleep will boost your health and productivity, and it will rejuvenate your body and mind. Some people may believe that sleep is overrated, but study after study has shown that those who get at least eight hours of sleep look and feel better than those who don’t. It can be tempting to skimp on the number of hours of sleep you get, but it isn’t worth it. Skipping sleep takes a toll on your brain’s ability to function, your appearance, and on your overall long-term health. So do yourself a favor and skip the late night talk shows and midnight snacks tonight!

There’s another easier-said-than-done tip that I’m sure you’ve heard many times before. Any guesses? Exercise, of course! Whether you are trying to lose weight or you’re at your target weight, it can be tempting to skip exercise. No matter how you slice it, it’s not going to do you any good. Not only does exercise help you look good, but it also helps you feel good. Exercise releases endorphins that make you feel good from top to bottom and stress literally drips off you!

It can be difficult to incorporate these healthy living tips into your life, but there is one tool that ties everything together: the power of positive self-talk. You can use positive affirmations to help remind you of your healthy living goals. Affirmations are short statements that encourage you to sharpen your mind and body while conquering your goals and improving on your weaknesses. Affirmations can help you focus on creating and maintaining the healthy body and mind you desire because it gives you the motivation you need to focus on your most important asset – you!

Some examples of affirmations include, “It is okay for me to take care of myself first,” or, “I am healthy and deserve the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.” You can use these simple positive statements throughout the day to stay motivated and focused. After all, we all need some motivation from time to time.

When you implement these strategies in your life, you’ll begin to realize just how easy it can be to lead a healthy lifestyle, especially once you have gained the right set of tools in your self-improvement toolbox!
