I am currently reading “You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream” by Holly Gerth. Great book by the way! This morning as I was reading a chapter How to Stop Sabotaging Yourself. She talks about taking care of your body, how ironic right?! This sentence stood out to me. “When we make poor food choices, ignore exercise, and don’t get enough rest, then we flip ourselves into living out a stress response. That makes it much harder to hear God’s voice, love those around us and effectively pursue the God-sized dreams in our hearts.” HOW TRUE RIGHT?! How can we hear God’s voice if we’re living in a stress response mode? If we don’t take care of our bodies we can’t live up to our true potential because we’re running on fumes. We can’t love those around us because we don’t love ourselves! You have to take care of yourself if you want to be able to live out your God-sized dream whatever that dream is!
So, commit to getting 7-10 hours of sleep. Eat healthy! It doesn’t have to be complicated, keep it simple and most importantly get moving! Even if you only take a 30 minute walk in the evenings, it’s a start. Oh and follow my blog so you can keep up with my recipes, workout tips, etc. 🙂
