Day 6: Full Acceptance


We are really good at finding faults, the negative and pointing out the body parts we want to change. We allow that little miss perfect voice to nag about the size of our stomach, the width of our thighs, the flab on our arms, the wrinkle on our face, the lifeless hair – do you need more examples? It’s actually pretty sad that we spend so much time on this instead of appreciating our gift.

DAILY EXERCISE: Acceptance is the first step. Sit down in meditation pose and hug yourself with your arms (like in he photo) with your eyes closed. Scan your body up and down worth your awareness, and as you pass each body part repeat the following in your mind: “I love and accept my ___________.” Fill in the blank with the specific body part.
