Hello Family – it is yet another day and I’m extremely blessed to be able to share it with you guys. I want to talk about something very important that most of us don’t really like to deal with – that is our physical health. You can be an outstanding, overall great person, but if you are not taking care of your physical body you are not guaranteed to be with us very long at all. So I wanted to share 3 easy ways to take care of your temple.
- Take time to exercise
Exercise is a great weight gain controller or maintainer. It also combats health diseases and conditions. You don’t have to go out and run a marathon tomorrow, but do something that will speed your heart rate up. It also helps stabilize mood. If you’re stressed out, exercise is a great way to ease tension and balance out your mood properly
- Make sleep a priority
Now I know this can be a tough one being that sometimes it feels like there isn’t enough time in the day to do ANYTHING! The National, Heart, Lung and Blood institute says that Sleep plays an important role in your physical health. For example, sleep is involved in healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke.
- Slow down
There is a Latin Term Carpe Diem – seize the day! In other words enjoy the moment. Often times we are so rushed to get here, do this, settle that, that we allow precious moments to pass us by that could be used to appreciate the small things in life with big meanings. If we learn to slow our pace a little, and take in the fresh air, enjoy the scenery, savor the lunch we’re eating – it will create a better flowing day that will work for us and not against us.
I hope that this helps you a little – it is not enough to be super smart, very spiritual, and financial well, but you MUST take care of your body. Start today with these three easy steps and create pockets of change in your life!!
