Make Health and Fitness a Top Priority
To make health and fitness our top priority in our everyday life, it has to become a religious part of our life. This will include our physical and spiritual needs. How we think about ourselves, and how we present ourselves to others, are important to us as well as to others, in our daily functions in life. Happiness and contentment in our life plays a major role in our health. Unhappiness creates stress that is harmful. Stress weighs heavy upon the mind of an individual and can cause poor appetite and a lack of desire to engage in activities. If left unattended to, stress can lead to other disorders, that can harm an individual’s body and soul.
Challenges in life will come to everyone. How we handle them, depends upon our physical and mental abilities to communicate with others in stressful situations. A healthy body and a competent mind will create a peaceful atmosphere. An unhealthy body and a mind filled with anger makes a tense atmosphere and it creates hostility in the presence of others.
Finding ways to relax the mind, and engaging in activities that will allow body exercises, and eating foods that are nutritious are positive steps to promote making health and fitness your top priority. I have devoted lots of years in studying health and personal care interventions. My experience as a medical professional has helped me to apply the knowledge I have learned to help others.

Being at home for holiday gatherings, spending time with my family and friends as we gather around each other, Giving Thanks to God for bringing us together again, and sharing stories are special memories. The things we share with each other are deeply felt from within our hearts that neither of us will ever forget. For the gifts that are priceless are the ones that are heartfelt; their roots are within our soul.
The warm words of “Hello, it is so good to see you, again” and the hugs we share showing each other how much we love and care, bring tears to my eyes and warmth in my heart, with each day of knowing we will soon depart.
God sitting upon his heavenly throne has looked down upon us and smiled, as he poured out his blessings of love and kindness to each of us.
The peaceful atmosphere is filled with joy and happiness, as we sit around our table to express thanks to God, is one I will always cherish. I feel a special kind of love for my family and friends, with gratitude to God for allowing us to spend this holiday together once again.
Happy Holidays to my family and friends,

The challenges we face to maintain good health habits become more aggressive during the holidays.
More time is spent eating and entertaining ourselves with family and friends, and less time is geared toward continuing the routine exercises and paying close attention to eating lesser calories and our salt intake as well as, eating smaller portions of food, during the holidays.
Eating unhealthy snacks between meals, and replacing water with pop and other beverages that are high in calories, can become a challenge to resist, while vacationing during the holidays. Cooking during the holidays can create a challenge. Over-sampling the food while preparing holiday meals is a weakness. The challenge to resist the temptation to eat a meal rather than a sample is aggressive.
To maintain good health habits during the holidays, we have to face each of our weaknesses and learn how to control our eating habits.
- Continue to do as many exercise routines as possible
- Eat smaller portions of food
- Drink more water
- Avoid salty foods
- Monitor the calorie counts
- Include fruits and vegetables in the holiday meals
Salty foods along with other seasoning used in foods, are tasty and enjoyable to the taste buds; making it easy to become addicted to them, while they present a challenge to our health. To deal with these challenges we have to face them and find the strength within ourselves to resist the temptation to yield to them, and maintain good health habits.

In the year of February 1996, scientists revealed that countless numbers of deadly viruses are lurking in the world, that they have no cures for. These scientists warned that, “At sometime, somewhere, there will be an outbreak that will destroy the entire world.” They informed that “One drop of infected blood, can wipe out a whole city.”
These scientists further stated, that the United States has come face to face with the full-blown viral crises that there are no cures for.
Kikwit, Zaire ___ May, 1995: 600,000 people were placed under quarantine due to fear of an outbreak of the Ebola Virus. The virus was said to have killed more than 100 people. There is no cure for this virus.
The Ebola virus has continued to spread to other areas of the world and destroy thousands of lives.
Symptoms of the Ebola Virus According to This Report
Hemorrhaging from every orifice of the body
Note: Australia___April , 1995: A new virus called Morbillivirus that is related to measles in humans and distemper in cattle, dogs, seals, and porpoises, killed 14 horses and their trainer. According to scientists, this virus is an example of a newly “emerging infection that has joined the Hantavirus, Tuberculosis, and others as potential new threats to world health.

Healing and Health
The ability for the body to heal at a faster or normal pace determines how healthy a person is. A healthy body is well nourished. It will heal faster than a body that is unhealthy. Also, an unhealthy body is susceptible to germ causing sicknesses and diseases that can be transmitted to others.
The immune system in a heathy person will fight against germs. Good hand washing, a well-balanced diet with exercise and spiritual support, are helpful in maintaining good health habits, and a positive outlook on life. Visit Ellen Barrier at Morinda for products and personal care items.
