You should be LEARNING.
Learning what is working with your life. Learning what your body likes. Learning how your body feels its best. learning different foods that you like.
Being healthy is a skill, but sadly people are lead you to believe it is just about trying harder.
Here are my 4 areas to look at to help you to learn and get better at eating healthy:
Finding your Identity with Personality Quizzes
Personality quizzes can help you to see yourself in a different light. Answering some questions about how you react to certain things, make decisions, why you do things and how well you answer different questions can provide insight. There are so many quizzes out there with different results and insights. It would be wise to use caution while taking quizzes and applying them to your life.
When you see this picture? What do you think about the person? What do you think about this person’s work ethic, intelligence, discipline, value to society and health?
There was recently a picture of someone with extra body fat posted in an advertisement and there was an uproar (link: https://www.yahoo.com/gma/gillette-posted-photo-plus-size-model-twitter-couldnt-014741290.html). I know with social media everything gets a big uproar, but we need to stop and think about how we view this person.
Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.
~ 1 John 2:15-16
We have a tendency to focus on temporary things that are not important in the grand scheme. It is extremely easy to get caught up with social media, what we look like, what other people think, our bank account, getting the car, getting the house and the list goes on. We start focusing on things that can be gone in an instant! Houses, reputations, looks, money can be gone in one tragic accident.
:The Bible is full of wisdom and best practices to live our life. The past weeks we went over 7 healthy practices and I wanted to make a nice page for you as a reference. These healthy practices have been backed by science and more importantly God’s true, unfailing Word. The list below has links to the blog posts with more bible verses, information and some scientific findings. The unusual, biblical health practices we discussed were:
Jesus was focused on serving other people. He was living a life focused on other people. He wanted His disciples to have the same servant mindset. God’s Word is full of word encouraging us to serve one another, but did you know that serving others can be healthy for you?
“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord Your God gives you.” (Exodus 20:12)
This is one of the only ten commandments that talks about the benefits of following it. The only other commandment that mentions a positive benefit is ““You shall not make for yourself an idol…. [God will show] lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.” (Exodus 20:4-6) Another commandment only discusses the consequences of not obeying, “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain,” discusses only the negative outcome saying, “for the Lord will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.” It is interesting that this one comes with the benefit. Probably because in God's wisdom He knew this would be hard . God also repeated this multiple times throughout the Bible to drive home His point:
Sabbath is a day set apart from everyday. Getting you out of the endless cycle of wanting more, endless things to do and always being in a hurry. Sabbath is about taking time to reflect on our yourselves, reflecting on God’s amazing love and power. Being thankful that we are here for eternity and do not need to rush because our Father will take care of it. Sabbath should help promote a more balanced lifestyle taking time to decompress.
