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.
