My lifestyle was killing me and I knew I had to do something about it. I have learned that the best way to develop a healthy lifestyle is to discover the source of problem and then put a plan into action that will develop good health.

God Appointed Rest

How do you replenish yourself emotionally? First, relaxation. Some people cannot accept that. They prefer to get emotional refueling from a pill or an injection. But there is no quick solution. To fill up your emotional reserves, yu need to wind down, take a break, put your feet up, take deep breaths and hold the phone calls.

The second way to replenish yourself emotionally is recreation. Some activities seem to inspire you, to recreate your enthusiasm for life. For me, it's sailing. For you, it may be walking the dog, playing racquetball or weeding the garden. You may have to experiment for a while to find what works best for you. When you find it, you'll know. A couple of hours of the activity, whatever it is, will refuel you emotionally and make it possible fo you to go back to loving others sacrificially and stead fastly.
