A Model for Healthy Living

Life Matters-9-8-21.jpg

At Church Health, we believe that being healthy is driven by three things, the experiences of joy, love, and feeling connected to those things greater than we are.

The practical implication of these wellness markers are embodied in seven equally important aspects of healthy living, one of which is medical care provided by the doctor, hospitals, and medicine, but only one. Equally important is nutrition. You are what you eat. Movement. We were made to move. Emotions, family and friends, work are those things that bring meaning to your life and your faith life. These seven areas are equally important and must be in balance. No one is more important than the other.

In your life, rate how you are doing in each area and you will know where you should focus your attention to improve your health. To learn more, go to churchhealth.org and look for the model for healthy living.
