I started this blog 90 days ago and got distracted. Well. The headline above refers to being two months into the new year, that will soon be an old year, as we settle way into what’s happenings in our lives, community, country and the world. How have these categories affected you mentally, physically and spiritually? Has your stress level risen out of control? Gained weight? Mad at GOD? Running towards GOD? Angry at your neighbor? Angry at yourself? That’s enough. I believe you get the idea.
While a good counselor and coach and perhaps even a mentor, will help us work through our issues and our emotional response to them, what can we do to aid the process? You guessed it!

Cheers to your spiritual health!
The headline and the following content is an excerpt from Q&A from my fitbit mobile app. It reviews the importance and health benefits of being active hourly.
“Research shows that prolonged sitting is associated with a significantly higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer, and depression, as well as muscle and joint problems. Even if you meet typical exercise guidelines, sitting for long periods of time can still compromise your health. Fortunately, moving even a few minutes every hour reduces the negative effects of sitting.”
