Have more energy and create the healthy vibrant future you desire

Have you been eating your fruits and vegetables? If you are looking for a sign from God then here it is....After much study, I am truly convinced that if you aren't eating fruits and vegetables, you are scheduling disease in your future. I think this is also true in regards to exercise. In order to remain healthy and function at a optimal level, the body needs exercise just like it needs the vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals found in fruits and vegetables. You can't just pray over a hamburger and french fries and expect it to miraculously change into something healthy inside your stomach. God hasn't predestined a certain level of health for you. Your genes don't determine your future health either. You determine your future health by your decisions. Your decisions no matter how large or how small have an effect on your health. Many people take better care of their car than their own body. Love yourself enough to give yourself what you need, not always what you may desire. Decide to make appropriate changes if needed. When your daily habits incorporate intake of fruits and vegetables and moderate exercise, you will have so much more energy and vitality. You will have more energy at work, school, and at home with the family. You will be empowered to better cope with the sometimes stressful things that life sends our way. When you take great care of your body, you will be happier and have more to give to others around you. I believe that even your brain will function better. You will become more creative and intelligent. You set yourself up for success in every area of your life through these simple positive acts. World famous Psychiatrist Dr. Daniel Amen said some remarkable things in the PBS program "change your brain, change your life." Dr. Amen has written several books and has become well known for his pioneering brain research. He has been using brain scan technology to study the human brain. Through his research, he has found some astounding things. In this PBS program he said that those who do cardio exercise and then study actually become much smarter than those who just study. Studying after cardio exercise actually improves the brain and allows it to function at a more optimal level and for you to retain more of what you learn. Another incredible thing that he mentions is that the daily intake of omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oil, actually improves brain function and can also make you smarter. These simple changes in your daily routine can have an amazing effect on your life. It's not just one day of doing these things that has such an impact, but the compounding effect over time. These small faithful habits have a compounding and synergistic effect, leading to the healthier happier life you really want. All of our choices big and small are leading us somewhere. Where are you going in regards to your health? What are your values in regards to this? Are your daily habits leading to the future you desire? I'm currently in the process of writing out my values and goals in regards to this area. From my goals, I will be creating new habits that lead to the optimal health I desire. Where do you want to be in 10 years in regards to your health? What small habits do you need to create that will create the future you desire? It's your habits that will make you or break you. People don't decide their future, they decide their habits and their habits decide their future.
