Side stepping stress is important for a healthy workplace and home. However, it begins within each individual. Join us as we discuss the health benefit of experiencing gratitude. Kandis shares her five steps to getting to gratitude.

The summary of steps include:

·         Understanding Self – Instead of playing the victim but make changes to ourselves 

·         Move forward from stressful event- visualize yourself standing in a place of gratitude 

·         Love unconditionally –First love ourselves so we are free to love others 

·         Set boundaries – Be clear about the types of people you allow in your life and their activities 

·         Be Happy – Do things that make you happy with feeling guilty

Protecting our hearts must begin with identifying the actions we take that are unhealthy.  Being mindful of our behaviors and the people we are around plays a major role in our ability to experience gratitude.

Heart Health: Part 1 Guard Your Heart Against Bitterness

Heart Health Month

 Host Shine & Grind Podcast

February is Heart Health Month. According to #Go Red for Women, heart disease is the number killer of women in American. The website, www.Goredforwomen.org states that 1 in 3 women die from heart disease a year. During this month’s episode we will discuss the health of our spirit (inner man), physical and mental well-being. 

We start off with a discussion on rooting out bitterness.  Life can kick us in the gut at times, but we must learn how to recover without allowing the seeds of resentment to plant itself within the foundation of our spirits. Hebrews 12:15 states, “looking carefully least anyone fall short of the grace of God; least any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;” (New Kings James Version) 

True resilience is the ability to endure tough times without it changing the core of who you are in a negative way.  Our struggles should make us stronger, not weaken us. 

Key takeaways include:

·         Never internalize personal attacks

·         Learn instantaneous forgiveness

·         Acknowledge your pain and embrace it

·         Confess your feelings to God

·         Praising God is fuel to recharge your spirit

·         We strive to produce the Godly behaviors of the Spirit

It is urgent that we position ourselves to bring forth the positive behaviors of the Spirit, such as kindness, patience, longsuffering, forbearance and peace. Our walk with God is a lifetime commitment. Preparation includes our total being to successfully run a marathon of faith. We will get a reward that is priceless.

Remember wear red for heart health month. For more information about heart disease visit www.goredforwomen.org.
