Live Well Now
A journey of exploration into our overall
lifestyles and how it affects our health.
Live Well Now is a program embracing a variety of healthy living lifestyles. We will review the pros and cons of different eating plans, everyday habits, exercise, and emotional and Spiritual effects on our lifestyles.
Welcome to Live Well Now! My hope is that there will be something for everyone at some point. I covet your prayers in this new adventure.
One of my main goals is to bring attention to the “good, bad and ugly” of some of the fad diets and real lifestyle changes that are bombarding us every time we turn around. For those of you who know me, you know I am not a fan of fad diets and they can be harmful to your health, your emotions and mental attitude. On the other hand, there are several lifestyle changes that we can make that improve your health, soothe your nerves and attitude and even make your doctor happy. I recommend you check with your doctor before making dietary and exercise changes.
There are different motivations for these changes and each individual needs to examine your motivation carefully. If you are doing it for someone else, it isn’t likely to work or last. If you are doing it for yourself, understanding fully that it may very well affect the rest of your life on this earth, your attitude changes. Above all, I have found that if I focus on the fact that I am a child of God and I want to glorify Him with my life, then it falls into place much easier. God created us to love, worship and serve. How can we do that fully?
Something I have discovered in the past few years is that while one thing may work perfectly for me, it may not be effective for you at all. Likewise, something may be ideal for you and not work for me at all. Our bodies all react to food differently. Even though both of those plans may be real food and healthy, your bodies may just respond differently. Even though a plan may be healthy, if you don’t have the lifestyle (remember The Daniel Plan Essentials? Faith, Food, Fitness, Focus and Friends) that rounds out and balances your daily living, it is going to be very difficult to stick with it.
That gives you an abbreviated version of what is to come. I hope you enjoy the ride!
In His light,
