RECIPE FOR YOUR HEALTH

Eat: a variety of foods; bright colored foods tend to have higher nutritional benefits; limit second helpings of dessert; holiday time is not the best time to ‘go on a diet.’ Be realistic.

Play: Include exercise most days of the week; be realistic; accept any physical limitations; adapt to those limitations while keeping active with what you are able to do.

Love: Emotions impact our well-being, for better or worse. Work at maintaining positive relationships;adapt an attitude of gratitude. Be more kind; show more understanding, practice forgiveness.

Drugs: Keep up to date on vaccinations; take prescription drugs as ordered by the physician; avoid drugs or substances that may be habit-forming. Drink more water.

Rugs: Remove scatter rugs from your home; falls are the most common cause of disability and death for people of all ages. Be mindful of hazards in the home and workplace; prevention is prudent.

Rest: Maintain a regular, regenerative sleep routine consistently. If you have chronic difficulty getting enough sleep, seek assistance from a physician who is a sleep specialist.

Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, just as it is well with your soul.
