Have you thanked your body lately?

“Your body will really appreciate it when you take the time to practice thank you meditations and write Thank-You letters.  Yes Thank You letters!”

Have you told your body thank you lately?  When was the last time you did?  Have you ever thanked your body? How about sending it a Thank You Note?

Gratitude is a powerful elixir and it can transform your life.  Imagine if we woke up every morning and before we got out of bed, you thanked your body?  This could even be done before going to sleep at night.

Your body is the most amazing machine ever built! The human body is highly adaptive, more so than any robot or computer will ever be. No man-made systems can be compared to human body in its inherent complexity and perfection!   We have a tendency to take it for granted instead of being grateful for it.  I think if we moved to a place of gratitude about our bodies we would see a new level of beauty emerge.

There are so many reasons to be thankful to your body, and here are a few examples:
