Your body is a temple

The one thing that stays with us from birth to death is our body. It is our job to keep our bodies as healthy as possible. The better we take care of our physical bodies the better our bodies take care of us. We feel better inside and out. Scripture even stresses the importance of taking care of our body.

1 Corinthians 6:19:

“Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own,

20You were bought with a price [purchased with a [a]preciousness and paid for, [b]made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body.”

You have to eat the right foods to fuel your body, drink plenty of water and I don’t mean just any ol water. Even some water out there being consumed contains chemicals that are not good at all for you. The more of these chemicals you ingest the harder your body has to work to try and rid itself of them. Which is not easy work for your organs. Kidneys were not designed to rid your body of these kinds of toxins. It therefore can reflect in your energy being depleted and/ or you feeling otherwise sluggish in the short term, and more detrimental effects on your long- term health. Of course you should always know what is in your food! Most food on the market is loaded with toxic chemicals that have significant effects and are detrimental to your health and well being! See my earlier blog “What are you really eating for more in depth information. Avoid eating junk food, as it is exactly what it sounds like… Junk. Garbage in, garbage out! Besides when you take good care of your body with a good healthy diet you feel, look, AND function so much better! That is the goal right?

You also need to exercise properly. I know you’re probably saying to yourself “I don’t have time to exercise.” Or “I don’t think the food I already eat is that harmful, I don’t feel that bad.”

That’s is just not true. There is overwhelming evidence of the harmful effects of poor diet, nutrition, and exercise! Where as with proper diet, nutrition, and exercise your entire life is effected positively!

Chances are you’ve come to this blog because you are interested in your health and making some changes in your life. Taking your health, happiness, and success into you own hands. When wee take care of ourselves we feel good, have better health, more success in everything we set our minds to, and with all that we tend to be HAPPY! 🙂

Honestly, if YOU don’t take control of these things who will? It’s wonderful that you are here now! The next step is doing something to put what you know you should into action.

A man can loose ALL his money, his life savings in one day. But with hared work, dedication, determination, and consistency he can gain it all back, and then some.

If a man waist’s time he can never gain it back, it’s gone forever.

Your body is your temple. Don’t let one more day go by without taking the best care of yourself that you can. It may look impossible to you to get where you want to be. Nothing is impossible to those who believe! Every journey starts with a single step.
