Exercise Your Self-Esteem

by Margrett Dawson Wallace
(Pelham, Georgia USA)


Since all aspects of our being are interconnected (Mind, Body, and Spirit), it is safe to say that if one of those areas are affected...our total being is then affected. This would explain the relationship between our physical being and how we perceive ourselves...None more relevant than in the area of Self-Esteem. Sharing information with others…especially older African American women to show the results of keeping our body as physically fit as our minds spiritually in working our self-esteem…in doing so , we will not end up in a “nursing home or being kicked-to-the-curb” in our elderly promised graced years of 70+. I am a retired Physical Education teacher/educator and has been asked to share with others “how it can be done”…Just sharing…

Generally speaking, the greater the value we place on our physical fitness, the better we perceive ourselves. Self-Esteem is a quite complex subject, so it is important to note because of the many variables involved...that a person may highly value his/her physical condition and yet have a negative evaluation of his/her body and self.

Studies have shown that exercise has a positive influence on self-esteem. The study specifically mentioned those who suffer from low self-esteem. Again, this is a quite complex subject that contains many moving parts and variables. However we do know this...That major contributing factors to a one's self-esteem are... 1) Our Fitness Level 2) Our Body Attractiveness 3) The Strength of Our Mind-Body-Spirit Connection.

There are no specific protocols regarding exercise prescriptions to improve one's self-esteem...or to maintain a healthy one. So general guidelines should be followed:

Cardiovascular Exercise: 5-6 days per week at a minimum of 30 minutes per day
Strength Training: 2-3 days per week

As a side note, Proper Nutrition and Spiritual Nourishment are the other essential elements.

Daily Exercise:
For the next 7 days before going to bed, ask yourself "Have I done anything to contribute to the development/maintenance of my self-esteem?" If yes, then it was a successful day. If not, tomorrow will be a day of change in your life.

Thank you for allowing me to share…never to live this life again…
