Helping Leaders Experience the Fullness of Health
What is the Health Project?
Many diseases and illnesses can be reduced or eliminated by eating more whole foods and reducing our intake of refined foods or “food like” products. You don’t have to be perfect at eating real food, but by taking one step at a time, you will gain higher levels of health.
Incorporating daily excercise into your daily routine, combined with modest improvements in eating real food is where the real payoff is. You do not have to join a gym, be an athlete, become a runner or wake up at 5:00AM
God has entrusted the beauty of this world to us. Maybe we can’t stop global warming but we can reduce our use of packaging, increase composting, and have a keen sensitivity to our actions.
Take the time you need to think through and pray about your decision to improve your health. If you are not convinced that this is indeed how God designed you to have a full and vital live in order to live out your calling, then don’t proceed until you are.
2. Group Up
I believe the single greatest mistake we make is to try and do things in isolation. We put far too much confidence in our own abilities to be successful. The Health Project is only helpful if you let others help you.
3. Define Your Goals
Now it is time to develop a plan. I don’t have a program for you. Many books have been written and they typically don’t work for the long haul. You could argue that they work, but usually only for a period of time. There is a big difference between joining a fad or changing your lifestyle.
It was in April of 1997 that I woke up to the reality that I needed to change! I had let poor eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle become my normal existence. It was on that very morning I made a choice to eat better and to get my body moving. I have been on this journey for over twenty years and I still have so much to learn. On this journey, I have experience and changed how I see the link between my physical health and my spiritual growth. This transformation is something that I want to invite you to experience. It will change how you feel, how you live and how you lead.
