Women today have a lot on their agendas. Church, family, business, careers, travelling, studies etc. We spend so much time caring for others but neglect to realize that we need to first take care of ourselves. Complete well-being involves our physical bodies.None of us can be at our best without also spending some time and energy on improving our physical health. Women who engage in a regular exercise program live longer lives, are less likely to experience health problems, miss fewer days at work due to illness, experience less depression, and have more energy.
Optimizing these areas can enable us to lead healthier and more fulfilling lives, which can ultimately help us to be better women of God. We all have our favourite snacks and sweet treats we like to indulge in from time to time. However many of us end up failing to exercise moderation when making healthy eating choices. While healthy eating choices are a key factor in improving one’s health and fitness level, nothing else is as important as exercising on a regular basis.
The Bible Instructs Us to Take Care of Our Physical Bodies
First Corinthians 6:19-20 says “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you were brought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body.” We glorify God by how we treat our physical body. Let’s honour Him by being good stewards of the body He has blessed us with.
