One of the three aspects and the one that is easiest to relate to is the body. Our body is where our mind works, and our spirit resides. The body can be described as the temple for the soul or a biological machine. Either way, we need our body to live in this world. Without a body, we cannot explore, experience, or function. When our body deteriorates, either through age or misuse, we can no longer actively participate in life. When our body dies, so does our existence in this world. We must recognize the value of our body and treat it as a precious gift that allows us to be. We must do what we can to promote body wellness. We must ensure that our body functions at its best for as long as it possibly can. We must create the ideal home for our mind and our spirit. Seeing our body as a temple for our soul allows appreciation and proper care to be provided. This perspective allows us to love our body as a necessary tool for experiencing life. Body wellness aids the mind and spirit in creating a flourishing life.
“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.” Jim Rohn
