Make Health and Fitness a Top Priority

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.

Self-inflicted Wounds that Destroys a Relationship   Leave a comment

Self-inflicted Wounds that Destroys a Relationship

Cheating Lying and Secrecy Can Destroy a Relationship

These self-inflicted wounds that destroy a relationship can also cause health problems to the other individual.

The health of the body is determined by the condition of the mind and the soul of a person. Living in an unhealthy condition in a relationship can have a tremendous effect on the body, mind and soul that can be harmful to a person’s health.

Physical Health___ Body     Mental Health ____ Mind       Spiritual Health ____ Soul

When any one of these components of the body’s make-up is harmed, it affects the entire being.

Choice:  Choosing to stay in an unhealthy relationship for the sake of being with someone is a bad decision. Nothing profitable can come from such a dysfunctional relationship. The result is pain, which ends in poor health and sometimes the loss of life. In some cases the loss of a career and financial support is another affect due to a bad decision.

Living in The Past

When disagreements occur, bringing up unpleasant past events during conversations can lead to arguments that can result in hurtful words said. This can result in making a decision that is not based on a rational judgment. Anger causes people to react with a negative response that can be physical and verbal.

When there is No Choice:

Face the Challenges and Maintain Good Health Habits during the Holidays   Leave a comment

Face the Challenges and Maintain Good Health Habits during the Holidays

 

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.

  1.  Continue to do as many exercise routines as possible
  2.   Eat smaller portions of food
  3.   Drink more water
  4.   Avoid salty foods
  5.   Monitor the calorie counts
  6.   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.

Should The World Be Concerned About A Deadly Virus Outbreak?   Leave a comment

 Should The World Be Concerned About A Deadly Virus Outbreak?

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.

Deadly Viruses

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

Sudden shock

Hemorrhaging from every orifice of the body

Fevers

Vomiting

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.

Health and Healing

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.
