Good News Thursday!!!

I wrote this blog over a year ago and believe that it still stands true today.

Stress: A state of mental tension and worry caused by problems in your life, work, etc.

something that causes strong feelings of worry and anxiety.

physical force or pressure.

Just A Thought….

Today we’re living in a fast pace world.

Everything is rapidly changing.

We live in a time where it’s in with the new and out with the old.

And sometimes you may feel the pressure to keep up.

And if you’re not feeling the pressure, maybe you have kids who feel the pressure and therefore you now feel pressured.

It’s all about the latest shoes, clothes, tablets, Ipads, cell phones, and whatever else floats our way.

Things are moving so fast that we don’t even get the chance to enjoy what you already have.

It’s easy to become ungrateful and stressed out about how to get our hands on the next big thing.

So, what happens when we give into those temptations?

We may pick up more hours on our jobs.

We may pick up a second or third job.

We may even decide to turn to credit cards. (Yikes!)

We become stressed out, burned out, and physically and mentally drained.

We get so caught up in the “I want the best and I want my family to have the best” that we miss out on the most important parts of life.

Spending time with God, Family, Friends and our own Company.

When was the last time you were just able to relax your mind long enough not to think about anything but what’s right in front of you? 

Image-1 (6)

Remember the saying that the best things in life are free?

I’m starting to realize just how true that statement really is.

Going to the park, taking a walk, watching a movie, and praying together are things you can do with your loved ones.

And it’s free! Free I tell you!

It allows you to not only get in valuable time you’ll never get back, but it also allows you to become more in tuned to what’s really important in life.

It also allows you to draw closer to God, by drawing closer to the things that are important to him, people.

Isn’t it so good to be surrendering right now?

We not only get a chance to draw closer to our creator, but we’ll also get a chance to draw closer to the things of importance because we’re drawing closer to Him.

Just A Thought….

Light Up Love!!!

Good News Thursday!!!

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is LOVE. 1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIV)

Have you ever really thought about the importance of love?

or why God commanded us to love?

Love can be easy for some and difficult for others to give away.

But it’s important to share love with others.

It’s Time To Sweat!

Quick Tip Monday!!!

You may not be aware of this little fact, but we’re born with quite a few sweat glands–2 to 4 million sweat glands to be exact.

Now depending on how many sweat glands you’re born with will determine how much you sweat. Women tend to have more sweat glands then men; but men tend to be more active then women resulting in more sweat produced.

Some think of sweat as a huge inconvenience; sweating during exercise is one thing, but sweating when you’re anxious, embarrassed, angry, or scared is another thing all together.

Some people despise sweat so much they are willing to to be injected under their arms with botox. Ouch!

Okay, okay it’s true–sweat is not very popular, yet it is important and quite beneficial. So are you ready? Then, Let’s get ready to…….Sweat!!!

God With Us

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on  Gave It All by Travis Greene

I Need Thee, Oh, I Need Thee;
 Every Hour I Need Thee;
Oh, Bless Me Now, My Savior,
I Come To Thee.

That song now rings fresh in my mind.

It’s a clear reminder from my soul that I should never forget what’s most important as I take this journey on this narrow road.

Surrendering to God’s will can sometimes be challenging because of the flesh. The flesh refuses to submit; therefore making it easy to feel the need to give up and just surrender to self.

But I know that if I just hold on and flee the flesh’s will then I’ll be able to submit and become one with God’s will.

The Benefits of Calcium

Quick Tip Monday!!!

Calcium plays an important role in muscle contraction, transmitting messages through the nerves, and the release of hormones. If people aren’t getting enough calcium in their diet, the body takes calcium from the bones to ensure normal cell function, which can lead to weakened bones.

Bones grow rapidly during our childhood years, so it’s important for us to get as much calcium as we can to prevent bone loss later.

In addition people who tend to smoke, drink soda, caffeinated beverages, or drink alcohol may lack calcium due to the fact that those substances interferes with the body and the way it absorbs and uses calcium.

Allow Your Heart To Listen

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on If We Had Your Eyes by Michelle Williams

I wrote this blog over a year ago, and I still believe this stands true to this day. May you be blessed.

Imagine giving someone your complete, undivided attention — without dazing out or looking disinterested — where you listen with your heart and not with your thoughts or feelings.
What would that look like and why is it important?
Well everyone, from the most self involved to the most meek, wants to be heard and understood.
IMG_2671

If we could really grasp what the scripture is saying, and take ourselves out of the equation and really just listen to someone else, we’d probably eliminate being offended and angry.

Believe me when I say, it is truly a blessing to be able to speak and express ourselves, but it is even more beneficial to sit back and just listen.

If you have mastered this unique skill set, then you possess some advantages that some of us may not be aware of. But for those who have not Lets Explore in five steps:

Happy Monday!!!

In honor of National Celery Month, I thought I would re-post a recent post I wrote about the beauty of Celery!

Whether it’s Game Day, a simple party or group meeting; what is almost always on the menu? Wings!celery-juice

Yum! You open up the box going for a drumstick, a flat, or both. But what is usually always overlooked and discarded? The celery!

In fact, it’s been so ignored, that it has been replaced by carrots. Crickets!!! I know it just dawned on you that there used to be celery in the box.

Well break out that peanut butter we talked about on last week, because after you read of the health benefits of celery, you may conclude you’ve found the perfect companion for your peanut butter. Continue reading

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on The Hill  by Travis Greene

The Word of God says… Trust is the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5

On paper trusting in God can seem easy, but when putting trust into action it can become downright one of the hardest things you’ve ever done.

What makes it so hard?

I mean we know that God knows our path and He knows what’s best for us. So what makes it so difficult?

“Walk Your Way To Health”

Image result for walking exercise

Quick Tip Monday!!!

Lets Get Ready to………………….. WALK!!!

Walking, or should I say going for a brisk walk, is one of the most beneficial things you can do for yourself. You don’t need an exercise DVD, gym membership, or athletic build. Just put one foot in front of the other and WALK!

 

The Benefits:

  • It Invigorates Your Heart: The Stroke association states that walking at a brisk speed for 30 minutes can help prevent high blood pressure which can cause stroke.
  • It Decreases Disease Risk: Along with heart disease, walking habitually can cut your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, asthma and some cancers.
  • It helps control weight: In an article written by Peta Bee she stated that scientist at the University of Pittsburgh recently revealed that people who were overweight, who walked at a fast pace for 30 to 60 minutes daily, lost weight without changing their lifestyle regimen.
  • It Can Prevent Dementia: Being active has a positive effect on the brain and people of age who walk 6 miles per week could prevent brain shrinkage and maintain a healthy memory as the years pass.
  • It Can Avert Osteoporosis: Walking stimulates and strengthens the bones, increasing bone density and helping to maintain healthy joints which can prevent arthritis.
  • It Tones Your Legs, Glutes, Abdominal, and Arms: A good walk can strengthen, tone, and preserve your overall core, while taking off inches and burning calories.
  • It Supports Healthy Vitamin D Levels: Walking outside in the sunlight for around 15 minutes can naturally boost and give you a sufficient amount of Vitamin D.
  • It Gives You Energy and Makes You Happy: It increases circulation and oxygen in each cell of your body, helping you to feel more alert and alive. Your body also releases endorphins which is known to make you feel good by reducing stress and anxiety.

What Is Considered A Brisk Walk?

Walking at around 3mph is considered a brisk walk. So you’re not strolling along but you’re walking fast enough to increase your heart rate. You should be able to hold a conversation, but you shouldn’t be able to sing a song. If you can, then pick up the pace.

What Should My Posture Resemble?

Your back should be straight and not hunched. Keep your elbows bent and your fingers in a loose not balled fist position.

How Long Should I Walk?

30 to 60 minutes, but if you’re a beginner start off with 15 to 30 minutes.

How Often Should I Walk?

Anywhere from 3 to 5 times per week for beginners and 5 to 7 times per week for the more advanced.

Note: Keep a bottle of water on hand just in case you need to replenish your body.

So, rather you’re a beginner, intermediate or expert walker, always remember to make walking a fun and enjoyable experience. And if for some reason you feel like you’re not going to be able to take one more step, call on God and he’ll get you through it. I’ve learned that from experience.

No excuses. Just Walk!!!
