A common new year resolution that I’m sure we’ve either made for this year, or have made in the past, is to go on a diet.

I’m sure have read my last sentence you’ve immediately thought about food, haven’t you!

Well consider the following picture, which reminds us that our diet is not just about what food we eat or what physical exercise we do.

How you as a person feel physically, emotionally and spiritually is based on everything you experience via all your senses, and how strong your relationship is with God. So take care of your whole self, as your physical well-being is important, but so is your emotional and spiritual well-being.

Do you ever feel spiritually drained?

Have you ever feel that the “spirit” has just been exhausted in your life?

We all feel this way from time to time; but an energetic Christian knows the cure!

For this reason, I bow my knees and pray to the Father. It is from Him that every family in heaven and on earth has its name. I pray that because of the riches of His shining-greatness, He will make you strong with power in your hearts through the Holy Spirit. I pray that Christ may live in your hearts by faith. I pray that you will be filled with love. I pray that you will be able to understand how wide and how long and how high and how deep His love is. I pray that you will know the love of Christ. His love goes beyond anything we can understand. I pray that you will be filled with God Himself.

~ Ephesians 3:14-19 (NLV)

It’s time to recharge your spiritual batteries today, before your they run our completely!

You can do this by looking after yourself physically – by making sure we exercise and sleep well and eat a balanced diet. In other words, look after your spiritual, physical and emotional wellbeing.

Are you looking for simple ways to encourage your heart and nourish your soul?

In the last while I’ve given you some ideas which will hopefully inspire you to implement them in your own life, and over the coming weeks I’ll share some others with you.

So here’s today’s suggestion:

Be healthy                                                                                                                                               

 

Our health can often have a lot to do with how we feel emotionally. If we don’t eat or drink enough to sustain our bodies; or we get very little sleep each night; or all we eat is unhealthy fast food each day, we aren’t going to feel great are we. Whereas those who eat and drink only healthy foods, exercises regularly and gets a good night’s sleep will normally feel much more healthy.

So try to be healthy and change your lifestyle if need be, and I assure you you will see it makes a difference.

So here’s today’s suggestion:

Exercise

Getting our bodies moving, even just a little bit, raises our metabolisms, increases dopamine and endorphins, and increases our heartbeats, which in turn sends blood to our brains making us feel good.

So when you feel you need to lift your spirits, do some exercise – It doesn’t need to be really intense exercise to lift your mood, even just a short walk will make a difference!
