Do this. Improve Your Health! Health & Life Coaching 101
God set it up so that being at peace and living with “joy” in your heart produces actual great physical benefits! And this is great news that we all should be excited about, and take heed to. If you want to improve your health, remember this principle. While yes exercise and good nutrition can produce good health benefits, choosing to apply the principle of having a “merry” heart will produce far greater results.
Here are some more “age old” principles that you can find in The Word, that God set up as benefits and tools that He gave us the right and empowerment to use for the benefit of our own health and lives. And in most cases, if not all, science backs these up with much research:
Broken spirit dries the bones proverbs 17:22 – feeling defeated, feeling sorry for yourself, letting sadness continue to depression, guilt
peaceful heart leads to a healthy body; jealousy is like cancer to the bones. proverbs 14:30
And there are many more that we will go over in the future. I realize that many times we are looking for some kind of ground breaking findings when it comes to improving our health. I myself have been guilty of this. And there is no shame in it, we all do it at some time or the other. We want the quick fix, and we want big results without much effort and or time. And yes sometimes it happens that way, but not the majority of time. The Word says to “labor to enter into His rest”. That may seem contradictory, but it is true. We have to put effort into entering His rest. A lot of that just has to do with living and operating in His rest is cross grain with what we are used to. The point here is it still takes some kind of effort and time on our part. And in my 20 years of Health and Life Coaching, I have found out several things that seem to always remain the same. One of those things is that with gaining Health Improvements, it takes time, and it takes consistent effort. Thats not a bad thing either, it just is what it is.
One other thing that I have found to be true in my 20 years of Health & Life coaching, is that the foundation for true long lasting Health improvements is His Word. He spells out several key principles for us in His Word on how to take control of our health, and any other area of our lives. And for as long as I have been teaching Health Improvement using the model of Spirit, Soul, & Body, I still believe this order and this model is the best way to approach Health & Life Improvement. I have told people thousands of times that to understand the love of God, who they are and what they have because of the love of God are the most important and foundation elements for any improvement plan. Well I am not sure about “thousands” of times, but it sure has been a lot over these 20 years. So again let me say it: If YOU WANT TO TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR HEALTH AND LIFE, THEN THE “FORMULA” OR “EQUATION” TO FOLLOW IS: SPIRIT SOUL, AND BODY. AND IT IS IN THAT ORDER.
SPIRIT– FIRST YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THAT HE LOVES YOU UNCONDITIONALLY. THROUGH CHRIST HE MADE YOU RIGHTEOUS. AND HE EMPOWERED YOU WITH THE POWER TO TAKE CONTROL OF AND IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH AND LIFE.
SOUL (MIND WILL EMOTIONS) – HE GAVE YOU A MIGHTY STRONG MIND AND MOUTH, AND WITH IT HE GAVE YOU THE POWER TO CONTROL THEM AND TO USE THEM TO CONTROL YOUR BODY, YOUR LIFE, ETC.
BODY– USE PROPER EXERCISE AND GOOD NUTRITION CONSISTENTLY.
Your Health, Your Life, Your Choice God bless u kj
