Thinking about food, exercise, and a healthy body

Sometimes we may seem to be overly preoccupied and concerned with how to maintain a healthy body. While health is essential to our well-being, I’ve found there’s a more reliable basis for it than ever-changing diet and exercise theories. That basis can be found by reconsidering the actual source and nature of health, and learning about our true spiritual selfhood.

I love how the teachings of Christian Science reveal a Bible-based spiritual understanding that goes beyond widely accepted, but inconsistent and false, concepts about health and body. The acceptance of man’s spiritual origin as stated in the first chapter of the book of Genesis—man created “in the image and likeness of God”—impels a shift in thought to the realization that because we are Godlike, we are spiritual, not material, and therefore naturally possess health and well-being.
