It was His mission to bring to men complete restoration; He came to give them health and peace and perfection of character" p. While on earth, Jesus healed many diseases, and in the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy He has given us much counsel on how to live healthy lives.
While studies have shown that Seventh-day Adventists tend to live at least 7 years longer than the average population, we not only strive for quantity of years, but quality as well! We seek for that abundant life that Christ came to give, not only for ourselves, but so we will be able to do the work that He has called us to do. So, for the next few minutes, let's quickly review some of the health habits God has given to us through His inspired writings.
When we think of health, it's important to remember that God created us as wholistic beings--mind, body, and spirit are interrelated, and how we treat one affects all of the others. To have a clear mind, for example, helps us to have a healthy body. This is why we are told to stay away from harmful substances such as alcohol, tobacco, illicit drugs, and caffeine. Unfortunately, many people like to drink caffeinated drinks as a short-term relief for tiredness or drowsiness, but this doesn't solve the problem of fatigue.
In fact, it can lead to or worsen other health problems, such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, restlessness, osteoporosis, headaches, and more. Rather than drinking harmful substances, how much better to drink fresh, pure water! Did you know water makes up about 60 to 70 percent of your body weight?!
Every system in your body depends on water, so it is very important to drink plenty of water throughout the day. The ideal amount of water varies with individual circumstances, such as weight of the person, activity level, and climate.
However, a good rule to follow is to drink glasses of water every day. Exercise, preferably in sunlight and fresh air, is one of the most important things we can do to gain and maintain good health! Just a few of the many benefits of exercise include: lower risk of coronary heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure, Type 2 Diabetes, lower risk of many cancers, improved bone health, improved sleep quality, reduced symptoms of depression and better cognitive function, healthier body weight, healthier skin, less flu and fewer colds, and much more!
And while we all recognize that exercise is important, it is sometimes difficult to incorporate exercising into our busy lives. One thing I enjoy doing is walking in the morning while listening to inspired material, such as the Bible or Spirit of Prophecy.
It's important to find a type of exercise that you enjoy doing, and then try to do it at the same time each day. But to be really beneficial, I encourage you to live an active lifestyle, incorporating as much movement as possible throughout the day. The food that we put into our bodies has a tremendous impact on our overall health, and the Bible encourages a balanced plant-based diet consisting of grains, fruits, nuts, vegetables and legumes.
There are many studies confirming that a plant-based diet is far healthier and safer than eating meat. Here are just a few results of those studies:.
Friends, I want to encourage you, if you have not already done so, to prayerfully consider adopting a healthy, balanced, plant-based diet. Many resources are available online for delicious recipes and menu plans, and I believe you will be surprised at how well you will feel!
Getting enough rest on a regular basis is vitally important to good health. Doctors recommend a minimum of 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night. Without enough rest we are at risk for a number of health challenges, including obesity, diabetes, lowered immune system response, mood disorders, higher risk of injury, and impaired mental function. So, let's be sure to make sleep a priority. David R. Williams will be provided, both in video format and script. Chan School of Public Health.
