SHALOM :HEALTH & WELLNESS SECTION
The Word Shalom, represents PEACE! God wants His Creations to have Total and Complete PEACE!! In your mind, body and soul! What good is it to be at peace in your spirit, if your mind is being tormented, and your physcial body is sick and full of dis-ease! God's Word declares that He desires for us to be in Health, even as our souls prosper! All the money in the world, will not comfort you, if you are unhealthy and ill. The scriptures are full of God's spoken and written Word concerning His desire for His Children to have Health & Wellness in every aspect of your daily lives, but there are somethings that we can do to help ourselves to achieve and maintain our well-being. Here are some suggestions to bring Shalom for your Body :
I.) Learn to appreciate your Body!
"Know ye not that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit?" God holds us accountable for what we do, eat and how we treat our physical bodies. Remember you have only one body, and it is yours for your life time, take care of your body, so that it can take care of you!
To bring Shalom for the Body:
1.) Drink plenty of clean, fresh water daily. Recommended dosage 6 glasses per day. Limit coffee, caffeine and soda pop intake.
2.) Eat fresh fruit daily. Berries, grapes, bananas, apples, oranges, plums, peaches and melon are much more healthy for you than sweets, such as candy and confections.
3.) Exercise the physcial body. Add some type of simple work out routine each day. It will relieve stress, tension and stiffness. Walk, jog, run, swim or even aerobics; but do something to bring your flesh under subjection.
4.) Spend some quiet time alone! Give your mind a break! Take a time out for yourself, so that you can hear yourself think and hear when God is talking to you. Turn off the radio, television and stereo!Learn to enjoy Peace and Quiet!
