My physical needs are important
Growing up in an alcoholic environment, I invested so much emotional energy in taking care of others that I neglected my own physical needs. Taking care of my body was not as important as helping someone else cope. Since no one was there to take care of me, I did not learn to take good care of myself.
Today is evaluation day. I will assess my physical needs remembering it is not selfish to take care of myself. Do I eat well-balanced nutritious meals? Do I drink enough water? Do I exercise regularly and vigorously? Do I get enough sleep? Do I take time for medical and dental check-ups? I will be honest with my answers.
Today I will do those things that are respectful to my body, my physical self.
