My physical experiences are joyous.
I am thankful each day for the pleasure I receive from my physical experiences and intentionally cultivate the joy I get from them.
I even find necessary chores, like exercising, to be pleasurable. If I feel tired or lacking in motivation, I remind myself of the pleasure and move past any protests that may come from my mind. Moving my body is exhilarating, so I do it as often as I can.
I choose physical activities that I enjoy the most so that I can get the most satisfaction from my experiences. If I want to swim, I give myself permission to do it regularly. If lifting weights or doing yoga feels best to me, I carve out time for those activities.
My senses also delight me in everyday life. The fragrances of childhood holidays or warm summer days bring great richness to my life. Foods I love entertain my palate. And I luxuriate in the feel of soft fabrics moving over my skin as I go through my days in clothes that I love to wear.
Today, I make time to revel in my body and the joyous experiences it provides me.
I am thankful for the pleasures inherent in every moment I am alive. And I commit to reminding myself regularly how enjoyable the physical world can be.
