I exercise my body and mind. An active lifestyle helps me to grow stronger.
A good workout energizes me. Moving around brings oxygen and nutrients to my heart and lungs. I return from the gym feeling more vigorous than when I started out. I stay perky and alert all day long.
Working hard builds my confidence. My skills expand as I take on new projects and see them through to completion. My good ideas yield practical results.
As I exercise my body, my muscles grow firmer and more supple. I slow down the aging process and need fewer sick days.
As I exercise my mind, I gain knowledge and wisdom. I learn about myself and the world around me. I gain insights into my behavior and how to form habits that make me happier and healthier.
Each day gives me many opportunities to exert myself.
I take the stairs instead of the elevator. I go out for a walk during my lunch hour. I play ball with my children when they return home from school. I invite a friend to play tennis with me over the weekend.
I bring a book to read while waiting for a doctor’s appointment. I study a foreign language or sign up for accounting courses at the library.
Today, I put my body and mind to the test. I use my strength to tackle challenges and achieve my goals.
