Wellbeing Thought for Thursday 18th February 2021

Thursday 18 Feb


We need to be intentional about exercise without falling into the trap of making an idol of our physique. It helps us feel good. It gives increasing levels of energy. We invest in long-term health.

Unlike Elijah, we don’t walk long distances anymore as a necessary part of our daily activities. God prepared him for a spiritual encounter with a long walk!

  • Invest the time (at least 30 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise five times a week) plus some muscle-strengthening exercise (NHS guideline).
  • Make it fun.
  • Don’t compare.
  • Take small steps.

If you are not motivated to exercise, think about one thing you might enjoy that will get you started.
