"19...Do you not know that the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? As such, we shall care for our whole being (spirit, soul and body) in a way that honors God. As we care for and love ourselves, we are more able to better serve and “love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:39). 1 Corinthians 6:20 -”20 For you were bought at a price;therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's."
In keeping with this scriptural mandate, the purpose of Wesley Chapel Wellness is to ensure the physical and spiritual nurturing of those persons who participate in the various programs, to minister with the love of Christ as we share the importance of attaining, maintaining, and reclaiming the best possible level of physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness of body, mind and spirit.
Walking is simple, yet powerful. It can help you stay trim, improve cholesterol levels, strengthen bones, keep blood pressure in check, lift your mood, and lower your risk for a number of diseases (diabetes and heart disease, for example). A number of studies have shown that walking and other physical activities can even improve memory and resist age-related memory loss. All you need is a well-fitting and supportive pair of shoes. Start with walking for about 10 to 15 minutes at a time. Over time, you can start to walk farther and faster, until you're walking for 30 to 60 minutes on most days of the week. - HEALTHbeat , Harvard Medical School
