Protecting God's Temple Through Healthy Living

God has called me to educate and teach His children the importance of healthy living. We need to first take a look at our current spiritual, physical and mental well-being and see if it all lines up with the word of God. We would then evaluate and discuss some of the strengths and weakness of these areas, and see what steps we need to take to get to the next level (your personal goal).

My purpose is to coach and guide you through the steps to help you accomplish your goals!

God has a plan and purpose for each and everyone one of us. Who are we to deny God of being able to do His work because we are constantly sick, not in the physical condition to carry out the task at hand, tired and fatigued? God created our bodies to be physically active to be carriers and administers of His work. He is sitting on the throne and has created us all do the work.

"Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began." - 2 Timothy 1:9

Now is the time for you to take charge and be obedient to God's word. Deuteronomy 28 discusses the blessings for obedience. We have to work and do work to be blessed. God wants us all to live full healthy prosperous lives. "If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures." - Job 36:11

Benefits of being physically active:

  • Weight loss – Combined with a healthy diet, exercise will help you lose weight.

  • Improved mental health – Regular aerobic exercise releases endorphins, your body's natural painkillers. Endorphins also reduce stress, depression and anxiety.

  • Improved immune system – People who exercise regularly are less susceptible to minor viral illnesses such as colds and flu. It is possible that aerobic exercise helps activate your immune system and prepares it to fight off infection.

  • Increased stamina – Exercise may make you tired in the short term, i.e., during and right after the activity, but over the long term it will increase your stamina and reduce fatigue.

  • Disease reduction – Extra weight is a contributing factor to conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes and some forms of cancer. As you lose weight, your risk of developing these diseases decreases. In addition, weight-bearing aerobic exercise, such as walking, can reduce your risk of osteoporosis and its complications. Low-impact aerobic exercises, such as swimming, cycling and pool exercises, can help keep you fit if you have arthritis, without putting excessive stress on your joints.

  • Increased life span – The Harvard Alumni Health Study (1986), published in the New England Journal of Medicine, scientifically linked exercise with increased life spans for the first time. Since then, additional research has supported this finding.

  • Improved muscle health – Aerobic exercise stimulates the growth of tiny blood vessels (capillaries) in your muscles. This helps your body more efficiently deliver oxygen to your muscles and remove from them irritating metabolic waste products such as lactic acid. This can lessen your discomfort if you have chronic muscle pain or chronic low-back pain.

Live a healthy active life; obey the guidelines and principles of longevity and God will provide long life to you! "For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee." - Proverbs 3:2
