Principles of Healthy Living!

Our bodies are G-d’s Temple — let’s keep it healthy!

Here are 10 principles for Healthy Living …
1. Breathe Deeply – Air is the cornerstone of life. Every moment of every day your body exchanges carbon dioxide for oxygen to keep each cell in your body alive and functioning. A rich supply of oxygen can make the difference between feeling tired and stressed and youthful and focused. Take at least five deep breaths from your abdomen several times a day.

2. Drink Water – Water is essential for everything your body does. In fact, you are 98% water! Nutrient absorption, blood flow, respiration, elimination and your ability to see and hear require adequate consumption of pure, clean water. Your body cannot effectively store the water you need throughout the day. Drink water often.

3. Sleep Peacefully – Sleep is the only time your body has to repair and rejuvenate every organ and system in your body. Sleep depravation causes cellular damage, and limits the production of enzymes and hormones your body needs to keep your cells healthy, and prevent premature aging. Sleep also has a powerful impact on your emotional health – it eases stress and helps you cope with the ups and downs of your day.

4. Eat Nutritiously – Food has a powerful impact on your body. Every day, food, in large part, determines how you feel and how your body functions. A balanced diet, rich in whole foods, combined with quality nutritional supplements created to meet your specific needs, will give you the energy you need today, and the disease-fighting strength you need to build a healthy future.

5. Enjoy Activity – Your body was created to move – and move often. Activity increases your circulation, speeding oxygen, nutrients and water to your cells. Your Lymphatic System requires activity to purge your body of deadly toxins. Activity also triggers your brain to release health-giving hormones and enzymes which lift your spirit while they bolster your immune system. A small investment in daily moderate activity will enable you to reap tremendous health benefits.

6. Give & Receive Love – As you give and receive love, freely and generously, you will be blessed with meaningful, lifelong relationships and cherished memories that will bring joy in happy times, and strength and peace in difficult times.

7. Be Forgiving – By forgiving yourself and others for past and present mistakes, real or perceived, you will gain freedom from negativity and guilt that will strengthen you and those you love.

8. Practice Gratitude – Sincere gratitude will lift and inspire you. Recognizing and appreciating all you have empowers you to find and express true joy.

9. Develop Acceptance – When you develop the ability to identify and accept the circumstances in your life you cannot change, yet strive to make positive changes whenever and wherever you can, you will discover lasting peace and hope.

10. Develop A Relationship with God – You build a relationship with God in the same way you build a relationship with those around you – through sharing and listening. By offering a simple prayer daily, you will enjoy a sense of well-being you will not experience any other way.

God loves you and wants you to be healthy and happy. You are His precious creation. He has blessed you with unique gifts and created you for a divine purpose. God wants to have a relationship with you – He has chosen your body as His temple (I Corinthians 3:16). As you recognize and develop your relationship with God, you will be inspired to live a life of purpose and love, and experience health and well-being beyond measure.”
