Did you realize that the state of our health is directly tied to the state of our soul? Our battle scars from life have a way of impacting the health of our soul. Do we allow our emotions of bitterness and unforgiveness to get the best of us? Scripture tells us that we are to forgive others in the same way that He forgives us.
As an integrated being, our Soul (Mind, Will and Emotion) plays an important role in our overall health. Our feelings, our stress levels, our thought life, etc., will impact our health in ways we could never imagine.
Turn off the TV news and read or watch things that are encouraging and uplifting. You may also want to stay off of social media if you tend to be frustrated or discouraged by what you see there.
Take a walk or just go outside. Nature is very soothing to our souls. Fresh air and sunshine benefit us physically and the smells and sounds of nature can promote calm and peaceful feelings.
