Healthy living is a conscious lifestyle that is obtainable by making positive choices for the improvement of your spiritual, physical and mental wellbeing. Healthy habits and choices can make the difference between maintaining good health and having to deal with several medical conditions. What you chose to do with your body or to your body will determine the quality of your health, physically and otherwise. In other words, input (meditations, food, exercise, etc) determines output (general wellness and fitness).
Outlined below are 3 important aspects you need to give attention in order to improve your overall health and sense of wellbeing.
Meditate on the Word. The importance of the Word of God in the life of a Christian cannot be overemphasized. Your source is the Word of God, so your sustenance is primarily from the Word. The Bible says that the Word is life unto those that find it and health to their flesh (Proverbs 4:20-22). Study and meditate on God's Word concerning your health and make bold faith confessions every day; it will definitely produce the result of what it talks about in your body.
You Are What You Eat. How healthy your body is, to a large extent, is dependent on what you feed it. What you eat becomes a part of your body, so it is important to pay attention to what's on the menu to make sure it is good for you. A properly planned nutritious diet will provide energy, as well as the needed materials for growth, body building and repair of tissues. These nutrients also help to sustain the immune system and are important for the body's metabolic functions among many other functions.
Stay Fit – Exercise. Keeping fit isn't just for athletes or artistes; it's for everyone. Exercising should be a part of your daily or weekly routine to help you relax and keep your muscles toned. Easy exercises range from swimming and taking walks to carrying out household chores. Regular physical activity can help prevent or manage stress related conditions like hypertension, heart problems and other diseases like osteoporosis, diabetes, etc. Some say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Create new healthy habits one at a time. Start taking walks; reduce or stop excessive intake of carbohydrates; learn to drink more water and increase your diet's fibre composition. Every habit starts as a single choice, so get started on your way to a healthy and wonderful life today
