1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

Five Things I've Done to Improve My Health

Omelet--a choice for breakfast

During the month of October, I experienced poor health.  Happily, I am feeling much better now.  All of my proactive movements have taken a great affect on my health.  I am also thankful for all the prayers.

Once I could, I made decisions about my health.

The pity party over how ill I felt only lasted so long.  The anger took over.  I am not one to keep wallowing in my misery.  I took action as soon as I could.

Here are the advantageous decisions I made:

1. I asked for prayer.

This is the most important action.  I try not to be overly religious, but I can't avoid speaking about God.  I love Him so much because He has sustained me.  Praying to God, and asking for prayer, has availed much.  I can now boast that God has been healing me.

2. I took supplements.

I did some research.  I bought some supplements.  I started using probiotics.  I began detoxing, too.  Supplements like garlic, ginger, and cranberry have worked wonders.

3. I ate breakfast.

Taking the time to wake up in the morning wasn't easy.  It's become a wonderful habit.  I've drunk my coffee to wake up.  I've spent precious time with my hubby.  Most important, I have received essential nourishment to start the new day.

4. I slept more.

My body was tired.  I was weak.  I did not have energy to cook, clean, and home school.  My body needed to rest.  Sleeping more has helped me wake up recharged.

5. I wrote about my illness.

When my body was hurting, my mind hurt, too.  The mind/body connection was strong.  My emotions were affected by the illness.  Writing about my frustrations and responses to my illness have been beneficial.  Jotting down what has worked will help me in the future; writing has released the stress I felt about the extreme bodily pain.

With any major illness, one has to realize that the body is screaming.  
A wise person will review what has happened to his/her body.  That's not enough.  One has to act on the findings.  I had to change my diet and activities.  Fortunately for me, my health has greatly improved, but...
I continue to be a work in progress.

Well, thanks for reading about five things I've done to improve my health.  I hope this blog entry encourages someone to develop their own health goals.

How about you, my readers?  Is your health poor?  Do you have any new health goals for this fall season?  How have you handled setbacks to your health?  I encourage you to assess your current health.  It's a great opportunity to adjust your habits.  You might need to tweak your habits to improve your life.   

If you need to improve your health, in any form, please ask God to help you; He will, if you pray for His guidance.
