My entire adult life (from adolescence on), there were certain things that I always thought were an inevitable part of life: of being a living, breathing, human. Things like a perpetually low energy level, feeling generally sluggish much of the time, feeling a bit “fuzzy” mentally every now and again, and often feeling bad about the way I look physically. I did not really think these things were abnormal; I thought they were a natural part of life…
Until a couple months ago when I became convicted that there is more to life than making it through day to day and trying to put my best foot forward. And while modern medicine is incredible, and certainly has its place, it is not the answer for all issues.
God gave us SUCH AMAZING bodies and minds. And He asks that we care for ourselves mentally, physically, and spiritually. I believe He wants us to be responsible for what we do with and to our bodies and minds, and what we put into our bodies and minds. To a large extent, I am responsible for the way that I feel.
Recently, I have learned and started putting into practice several ways of taking ownership of my body… of my life. I can already see a transformation that has begun… and it is only the beginning. These small lifestyle changes are going to CHANGE MY WHOLE LIFE… and the life of my family.
Okay, so clearly this blog is not a health, fitness, diet, or nutrition blog. I am an expert in none of those things. But God has started a transformation in my life, and has laid it on my heart to share. I am sharing for a couple of reasons: for the sake of sharing and writing, because I believe it is such valuable information, because I would LOVE some feedback, and because sharing will help me stay focused and on track.
Tomorrow will be the first day of a ten day series of “Fresh Insights.” I will not be sharing any miracle diets, exercise regimens, or anything to that effect… just small, daily lifestyle changes that will change your life in a HUGE way. And as you read each day (and I hope you will), bear in mind that these are things that have been laid on my heart; they may not be things that you feel are necessary to incorporate into your own life. Even if that is the case, the information shared is solid, fact-based, and great to have.
