34 Affirmations for Healthy Living

--by Catherine Swift, syndicated from spiritualityhealth.com, Feb 02, 2015

Try positive self-talk to eat better, feel stronger, and rejuvenate your body. 

When day-to-day life seems to revolve around providing for others, we can forget to nourish our own bodies and spirits. And yet, self-care is what empowers us to give back to the world, fully and joyfully. Start your practice by taking just a few moments each day to affirm your commitment to eat well and live a healthful life.

I enjoy being in my body, and I nourish it each day. —Isha Lerner 

I enjoy healthy food without guilt. I reject society’s shaming of food for myself and for those around me. 

I take time to get outside. Our body is the accumulation of our past. Our breath unites our body and mind in the present moment. Go for a walk outside, preferably in beautiful surroundings. —Amy Zerner and Monte Farber 

I do not take my breath and beating heart for granted. I am grateful to be alive. —Nathalie W. Herrman 

Nutrition is a keystone for everything I do, so I make it an important part of my life and set aside time to eat well. 

I enjoy foods that are best for my body. When I eat my greens, I feel energized and abundant. —Louise Hay 

I expect a lot from my body every day, so I affirm its right to expect healthy fuel from me. 

The energy in what I eat sustains me, and I honor that fact by preparing my meals with gratitude, mindfulness, and a loving heart. —Nathalie W. Herrman 

Pure spiritual and physical nourishment is what enables me to give to others, and so I make it a priority. 

I get plenty of sleep every night. My body appreciates how I take care of it. —Louise Hay 

I eat only what I need, and I stop before I feel uncomfortable or overly full. 

What matters to me is my health, not the opinions of others, and so I take care of my body rather than trying to change it in unhealthy ways. 

I accept the limitations of doctors and look within to improve the quality of my health. —Nathalie W. Herrman 

Finding new ways to eat healthfully is empowering and puts me in control. 

I am the only person who has control over my eating habits. I can always resist something if I choose to. —Louise Hay 

I love every cell of my body. —Louise Hay

Walking meditation is like eating. With each step, we nourish our bodies and our spirit. When we walk with anxiety and sorrow, it is like we are eating junk food. The food of walking meditation should be of a higher quality. —Thich Nhat Hanh

Your feet are your physical connection to this planet. Touch the earth directly with your bare feet. Let the earth energy circulate from your feet to your head and back again. —Yoko Ono

My body is one of the most precious gifts I will ever receive, an extraordinary creation that I cherish and use fully.

When I eat natural, fresh foods rather than processed ones, I feel more connected to the earth and the hands that grew it, and I am grateful.

Just as I rid my diet of toxins, I also eliminate negativity from my emotions and thoughts.

All desire for cigarettes (or alcohol or whatever it is you’re addicted to) has left me, and I am free. —Louise Hay

Today I eat only foods that are life enhancing. —Louise Hay
