Most people I know struggle with their inner dialog or self-talk. What you may not realize is how important self-talk is to your health.
Many people suffer with some form of self-doubt. They wonder if they’re really enough. A man wonders if he’s competent enough. A woman wonders if she’s attractive enough.[featured-image single_newwindow=”false” alt=”Self-Talk”]Image from Dollar Photo Club Created in Canva[/featured-image]
For men, the question is more external. A man says to himself: “Can I come through when it really matters? Will people approve of what I’ve done? Will I be recognized for my accomplishments or acknowledged for my competence?”
For women, it’s more internal. A woman wonders: “Am I beautiful? Will anyone notice me? “Will anyone pursue me? Am I worth pursuing?”
For those of us pursuing vibrant health and abundant life, we must answer these questions in a positive fashion.
Intermittent fasting has the power to benefit us physically, mentally and emotionally. Those benefits go deep and wide. However, the spiritual benefits are by far, the best part of intermittent fasting.
This is the last post in this series and we’ve truly saved the best for last.[featured-image single_newwindow=”false” alt=”Intermittent Fasting For The Spirit”]Image from Dollar Photo Club Created in Canva[/featured-image]
Throughout the bible, we see people humbling themselves before God by fasting. This is true for the Jewish nation in the Old Testament, as well as the New Testament Christians.
For centuries, fasting has been an ordinary part of the lives of people who walk with God. If you’re a follower of Jesus as I am. And you believe in holistic health, then intermittent fasting should become a regular part of your routine.
Nutrition is important. We are what we eat. However, we’re also products of what’s taking place in our minds. Our thoughts are important as well.
In this series on intermittent fasting, we’ve focused on the physical benefits up to this point. We’re going to shift gears a little bit with this post and talk about how intermittent fasting can benefit our souls or our mental / emotional health.[featured-image single_newwindow=”false” alt=”Intermittent Fasting for the Soul”]Image from Dollar Photo Club Created in Canva[/featured-image]
