Happiness & High Self-esteem Choice #2: Physical
I choose to keep my body healthy and clean and avoid addictive substances at all times.
The purpose in coming to earth was to receive a body. Because of this great gift from God, we each have the responsibility to care for our own body to the best of our ability. Choosing to eat natural foods will help your body function properly.
Food is fuel, and you will feel better when you eat more nutritiously. Addictive substances, including caffeine, should be avoided. Exercise helps your body function well and lifts feelings of depression. Being well-groomed is also important. A daily shower not only cleanses the body, but refreshes the spirit. Sleep is essential for excellent health.
To increase your energy level, eat well, exercise every day, and get enough sleep. Your happiness and high self-esteem will grow as you discipline yourself to build a strong, healthy body where your eternal spirit—which came from God—can dwell.
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God,
And that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
—1 Corinthians 3:16
Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.
