Have you thanked your body for functioning, or your lungs for breathing in air without you ever having to think about it?
What about sending appreciation to your heart for distributing oxygen throughout your vessel in order to keep your cells and organs functioning so that you can truly journey on your inner path with any level of focus and integrity?
Whether you complete a full aerobic workout or Yoga Asana routine, stretch just a little, dance, or take a short walk, even for 15 minutes a day, you are contributing to the maintenance of your optimal health, functioning, and well-being.
