“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live”

"Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live” is a saying that has been printed on many posters. American author and motivational speaker Jim Rohn (1930-2009) wrote in The Treasury of Quotes (1994):

Some people don’t do well simply because they don’t feel well.
Some people take better care of their pets than they do themselves. Their animals can run like the wind and they can barely make it up a flight of stairs.
Make sure the outside of you is a good reflection of the inside of you.
Treat your body like a temple, not a woodshed. The mind and body work together. Your body needs to be a good support system for the mind and spirit. If you take good care of it, your body can take you wherever you want to go, with the power and strength and energy and vitality you will need to get there.
Take good care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.


“Take good care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live” has become much-quoted, although often with the word “good” left out.
