Affirmation, Gratitude and A Sore Back

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) promise my body that I will start stretching and exercising five days a week from now on. The past few months have been busy and I let my physical health routine slid so now I am laying in the bed paying the price of not doing what I know is best for me to do. I love when my body feels strong and invigorated. I allow myself the time to exercise. I encourage myself with supportive words that spur me on to care for my sacred body temple. My thoughts are my greatest cheerleaders when I use my thoughts to bolster my resolve I feel motivated. When I feel motivated my body gets on the floor gently elongating my muscles with classic stretching moves. My muscles respond with suppleness and flexibility allowing me to move effortlessly. It empowers my heart that it is in my power to help my body thrive.  Thank you for nurturing your body today, it will thank you with good health.  :~)

Animals teach us to stretch every day, may I have learned my lesson to stretch for my health the way the animals intuitively do. :~)

Today I am grateful for all the backaches I have had before yesterday because yesterday morning I lifted an 18 litre bottle of water the first thing in the morning (something I do all the time lifting the bottle, usually not in the morning) and before I knew it my back was super sore and I spent all of yesterday laying in the bed, (the most frustrating part of the whole event was that I had told myself to go and get the water, the night before as my body is more ready for lifting in the night than in the early morning, but did I listen to me? NO! I waited until morning and am now paying for not listening to my inner voice) for knowing that stretching the muscles in my back when it is sore helps to relieve the soreness so that I am able to walk rigidly around the house and to the car so far today, Gratitude Dance and for Robert Cerins taking care of me yesterday and today while I have been wobbling around the house, laying like a lump in the bed generally being really chilled out all day. Thank you for joining me today. Thank you for listening to your body. I Love YOU.  :~)

Sometimes my body has to remind me to care for it through using the old technique of creating pain so I will soothe myself.
