There are some things we have learned in this contemporary age that are essential to our physical health. We know that we need to drink so much water, exercise so much, eat certain foods, worry less, and sleep more. These things are proven to improve or maintain good health.
There are also some proven remedies for a healthy soul and spirit. A list of them are found in Romans 12:
10 Be devoted to one another with [authentic] brotherly affection [as members of one family], give preference to one another in honor; 11 never lagging behind in diligence; aglow in the Spirit, enthusiastically serving the Lord; 12 constantly rejoicing in hope [because of our confidence in Christ], steadfast and patient in distress, devoted to prayer [continually seeking wisdom, guidance, and strength], Romans 12:10-12 (AMP)
Here we find God’s list for a healthy lifestyle; having brotherly love, walking in humility, being diligent, letting God’s spirit shine in our lives, always serving the Lord in whatever way we can, walking in hope, not because of what we can do, but because of what Christ has done for us, being patient when things go wrong, and finally and most importantly being devoted to prayer.
if we use this list as a guide to govern our day we will find that we will be not only healthy but wise and probably wealthy as well!
