Spiritual and Physical Wellness for Fitness after 40

Faith word cloud concept

Physical changes become apparent to us at midlife when we wake up and go to bed with sensations, aches and pains that were nonexistent until now. Our bodies are aging and we can see and feel the decline when we look into the mirror and experience longer recovery times after any form of physical exertion.

The spiritual part does not age or wither like our bodies; on the contrary this is the time in our lives that our spiritual selves can renew our vitality and zest for life apart from our failing bodies.

Often along with physical changes there comes a general unrest within our spirits that is not to be ignored. If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, this can be a new season for you. This is a season that your spirituality can mature by leaps and bounds because there is fewer worldly distractions from the general business of life.

This isn’t the time to give into fleshly desires, this is the time to press in, and seek God’s will for direction for this season in your life.

Regaining your physical health, the health that you took for granted and watched fade as you took care of everyone else in your 30’s and 40’s is not impossible to regain. Now it’s your time. This is your time to recapture the health of the physical temple that you have on loan by God. You can wake up without joint pain, or headaches, or other physical pains. You can wake up joyous and ready to serve God with the gifts that he has given you.

Ridding yourself of excess body weight, and increasing your physical activity can improve both your spiritual and physical wellness. My e-book Second Chance at Health is a good start to this process, check out the link.

Warning: Controversy: eat less and move more and gain spiritual strength

Eating less and exercising more. Yes. I said it.

There are a lot of specialists who want to check you DNA, check your blood type and smell your arm pits to help you determine the best eating plan for you.

I have a cheaper, less invasive, less gross, and possibly a very radical idea, eat less and move more. It is radical, and it’s biblical.

The Bible says not to be a glutton or lazy. So I have learned that there is nothing new under the sun, and that we can rely on the creator God to instruct us simply on how to take care of the physical bodies.

Our society has become so politically correct, we have changed the words that describe our less than attractive attributes to be less, well…. less offensive.

Instead of being a glutton we are overeaters, or emotional eaters, or stress eaters.

Instead of being lazy we too busy to exercise, or we are hard workers.

Using these terms allows us to sugar coat (pun intended) our real behaviors. In our soul of souls, we know when we are being a glutton and when we are being lazy.

The Truth shall set you free; the truth is Jesus Christ, and his Word.

Try it next time you want to eat that whole box of Oreo cookies (because I have), or want to lie on the couch for a weekend Netflix binge, tell yourself, “Don’t be a glutton and don’t be lazy”.

If you do this more often, your mind, body and spirit will benefit.

Confession and repentance can result in a changed life, both spiritually and physically.

Speak the truth to yourself, see where it leads you!
