Simple, Everyday Ways to Lifelong Health for Your Body, Mind, and Spirit

These days we are living longer than ever, yet we’re more run down, anxious, overweight, exhausted, stressed out, depressed, and all-around more unwell than ever before. The quantity of the days we live is up, but the quality of those days is down. Way down.

What if there were a simple, everyday way to change this? What if a healthy life were easily within your grasp–body, mind, and spirit? The good news is that it is!

Going beyond over-hyped diets and complicated exercise routines, spiritual wellness expert and certified nutritional counselor Laura Harris Smith distills the essence of a healthy life into one simple, practical idea: change your habits, change your life. By showing that a truly healthy life is more than physical–it’s mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual–Smith gives you easy, everyday ways not only to live well, but to live better, in every area of life.

Accessible, practical, and grounded in real life, The Healthy Living Handbook is not a major lifestyle overhaul; it’s just full of simple course corrections that will bring you the peace, rest, energy, connection, and clarity you’ve longed for. When you live from a place of true health, you will love more deeply, engage more fully, and participate with others more wholeheartedly.

My thoughts:

Since I have been changing my eating habits I have become very interested in overall healthy living so when I saw this book I wanted to give it a read.

It is divided into three sections. I found the first section very powerful and a great reminder for me of things I already knew but don’t walk in daily. I neglect Holy Spirit so much, I need Him and I don’t talk to or with Him enough. There are some powerful prayers at the end of each chapter that I fully embraced.

The middle section was about organizing your home. I need to do this but I honestly have trouble caring enough. However, I did end up doing some cleaning this weekend and it does feel good have a home that is more organized, I just have trouble keeping it there.

The last section is about physical health. I really enjoyed this section and it reiterated the things I have been learning about health and even has me thinking about some things I haven’t incorporated yet.

Overall, if you are looking for ways to improve every area of your life this is a good book to pick up.
