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…

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…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
