Why Staying There Can be Health-Disastrous

gettyimages.com
Just staying there a long time can wreak havoc on your health. No kidding. God designed our bodies to move around from time to time so all systems can run smoothly all the time. Your body is not designed to just stay there idle in one place.

The same is true spiritually, mentally, emotionally, socially (of course) and financially. The moment you stop and become dormant, a lot of things start to go wrong.

I stand up from my PC desk now and then to exercise, but I realize how that isn't enough. I have to run or brisk walk outdoors as well or just go out to roam leisurely for a change of environment. It's good for your mental, emotional and spiritual health as well.


You keep yourself in your office or house the whole day every day and you might start getting some inner disturbances and personality problems. Or anxiety problems that cause a lot of other health problems eventually.

Go out and see life.

Spiritually, you also cannot remain the same, idle, or just "stay there." You cannot confine yourself in a "safe" box just because you fear going wrong. You have to explore your faith in and with God. I always explore the bible with the Spirit of God and go places in the spirit realms with Him. The safest and most rewarding place is to go places with God (especially in dangerous places like the wilderness where you learn a lot of powerful truths).

I brought you up out of Egypt and led you forty years in the wilderness to give you the land of the Amorites. [Amos 2.10]
Financially, you also have to take risks and invest your money in various ways.

Invest in seven ventures, yes, in eight; you do not know what disaster may come upon the land. [Ecclesiastes 11.3]
So, don't just stay "there." There's so much more to life than what you see in front of you.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.

Here are my secrets on how I get physically fit. Click here.

If you peel off a banana, make sure you eat the whole thing now. Don&#…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…
