Have patience in your wait for the right things at the right time.
Patience is a virtue and not easily come by, which makes for lots of opportunities to grow in this area. We want things right when we think of them. Instant gratification is mainstream in society and it seems that it should be that way in our spiritual life, but unfortunately we’re not here to make the rules, we’re here to discover ‘the good life’
With an inquisitive motivation and a genuine believe in the reality of a healthier you, start off your journey to better health with this checklist of a healthy life. There are various benefits to healthy living, some of which you will likely be aware of and some that you will be comforted to know will be a reward of your step in the right direction.
A Healthy Life Checklist:

muscle tone, improved metabolism and greater flexibility

Additional years of living a better quality of life

Aspirations to achieve more in all areas of life
Reduced occurrence of bone loss associated with ageing

With all that is gained from leading a healthy life you can be assured that it is well worth the initial effort of making the gradual shift to better living. Slowly but surely you can make all the changes necessary in different areas of your life to get the most out each day with a renewed optimism that is sure to infect the people around you. So don’t just make the lifestyle change for yourself – do it for your children, your spouse, your parents, siblings, friends and even those casual acquaintances that will be inspired to take a closer look at their way of living when they see how full of life you are when you choose to put mental, emotional and spiritual health first.
Below are a few inspiring words to encourage you to live a healthier way:
“A vigorous five-mile walk will do more good for an unhappy but otherwise healthy adult than all the medicine and psychology in the world.”
~Paul Dudley White (1886-1973) American physician and cardiologist.
“Those who do not find time for exercise will have to find time for illness.”
~Edward Smith-Stanley (1752-1834) English statesman and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
He who takes medicine and neglects his diet wastes the skill of his doctors.
