Self-Esteem Building Exercise

I found a great site with self-esteem building exercises on it. It is called selfesteem2go.com

Here is some information from that site:

Self-esteem building exercises start with learning to care for yourself; physically, mentally and emotionally. I know, the advice “Love yourself” sounds like such a cliché, but studies have proven that people who feel good about themselves are happier, healthier and have better self-esteem.

The first step you can take towards building your self-esteem is to take care of your body. Eat healthy foods that give you energy and make you strong. Exercise every day, if only for twenty minutes. Take your time with personal hygiene; stay an extra minute in the shower to enjoy the hot water relaxing your muscles, and set aside time for nail and tooth care. --By Zoltan Roth site owner.

There is much more on this site, but I would like to focus on this aspect this week. The challenge is to take better care of your physical body this week. By caring for your body it is showing that you love yourself and your body.
If you don't feel that you do have love for your body maybe pampering it will help you appreciate it and be the first step in learning to accept and love it.

I remember hearing that part of the test of this life is to see how we take care of our body, "our temple." That has stuck with me and I want to show my Father in Heaven that I can take care of the body he gave me. The body that is mandatory for me fulfill my eternal purpose.

Give your body the extra attention this week and feel free to leave a comment about your experience.
(I've been behind on posting my weekly self-esteem assignments lately so if you are new to the site check out older post for more great ways to help you find your divine worth.)

A Great post, Haley. Last week I took great care of my body. I got ample sleep, ate right, and exercised. This week I'm tired, eating wrong and not getting the exercise my body needs (for me a simple daily weight lifting routine and a walk outside and/or on the treadmill). When I let things slide I find I pay for it emotionally, mentally and even spiritually. I feel much more in tune with the spirit when I don’t neglect my body.
