Praise - Part 4: Praise Your Loved Ones

Getting my body back - Day 73

Even though we love our family, at times we may tend to take them for granted ignoring the rich treasure we have. As we learn to appreciate our spouses, children, siblings, parents and other relatives, we begin to see the value in having them with us now and not when they've departed.

Now is the time to praise your spouse for just being there with you. Praise him or her for their contribution to your life. Praise him or her for their uniqueness. Yes, your spouse may say or do things that you may not approve of but consider yourself, as well. You are also not perfect. Look for the good and praise him or her for it.

Appreciate your children. You may feel like they're giving you gray hairs, but they are precious irreplaceable gems. Praise them for the good they do, show them and encourage them to see the good in themselves. In so doing, you'll be building their self-esteem and help them be confident.

Praising your loved ones brings a positive energy into your relationship with them and strengthens your family bond. When praise replaces criticism, the flames of your love for them is rekindled.

Fuelling words: The healing energy of my praise empowers me to keep moving towards my goal.

Deep breathing - relaxes the muscles and sends oxygen to the muscles where exercising alone would not reach.
