Be Kind to Yourself
It’s World Kindness Day, promoting the importance of being kind to each other, to yourself, and to the world. As you think of what acts of kindness you can do for others today and always, don’t forget the second part – be kind to yourself.
At the end of each newsletter, we include the quote from Jill, “Remember: You have a magnificent body. Treat it right!” Not only is it important to treat your body right — by doing Oxycise! — it’s also important to take care of the person inside — YOU!
Most of us are pretty hard on ourselves. We tend to compare our worst traits with other peoples’ best. And people who have weight problems tend to be especially critical of themselves. So be kind. Think of some people you love and care about — do you love them only because they are handsome or beautiful, or physically fit, or because they have well-toned muscles, or because they are thin and cellulite-free? Of course not! Then why do we judge our own worth by those standards?
Your body IS one of your most valuable possessions. So wanting to make improvements is great! And taking good care of it will help you have a longer and happier and healthier life. But remember to be kind to the valuable person inside.
Oxycise! is one of the best things you can do for your body. It can also do great things for your self-esteem and sense of well-being. When you take positive steps to take care of your body, it helps you feel better physically AND emotionally.
REMEMBER: You are a magnificent, important, unique person. Treat YOURSELF right!
