Disciplines of the Body

July 8, 2021

It was not an afterthought that the Apostle Paul referred to the body as the temple of the holy spirit. He also often used athletes as metaphors for aspects of the spiritual life. I practice, and teach, a number of physical disciplines including daily walking exercise, weight training, Yoga, nutrition, and the like.

While cruising through Twitter, I saw this infographic about drinking water. Consider this–8 Best Times to Drink Water:

  • After waking up to activate internal organs
  • After workout to bring heart rate back to normal
  • Half hour before a meal to help in digestion
  • Before taking a bath to lower blood pressure
  • Before going to bed to replenish any fluid loss
  • When you’re feeling sick to hydrate body for proper function
  • When you’re feeling tired to recharge your system
  • When you’re surrounded by infected and sick people to prevent infection from settling in the body
