This is a challenge, but it is also a critical point in the lesson of life. Whether you believe that you are spiritual being having a short term (say 100 years) physical experience or whether you believe that the ‘here and now’ is all that there is, it behooves you take care of your physical body. The bible speaks of the body as the temple of the Lord. But, even if you feel that your body is your body and nobody else’s, it would be smart to take good care of yourself.
Take a good hard look at your beliefs about diet, exercise, and weight and your body. Do you believe that because you are a couch potato or a computer geek, your lack of exercise will cause you to become fat? We usually get what we expect to get so don’t be surprised when you look in the mirror and see your fat self. Our beliefs, thoughts and expectations firmly dictate our reality. so, if you want to change your reality, first you need to change your thoughts.
