If there were ten

So, I was thinking about what to write this week. It's been tough. I love to write---probably too much---and decided I needed to work on being more concise. I was inspired by this somewhat humorous post on a website for Hawaiian locals (that, ok ok ok, has nothing at all to do with healthy living), and thought...if I had ten commandments for healthy living, what would they be?

So, here are ten commandments for living healthily that I believe in, in no particular order. What ten things do you think your lifestyle and health could benefit from? Write it here, let us know!

1. Your body is a gift from God. Treat it as such. Do not take it for granted.
2. Your are expected to present your body to others in a holy and righteous manner. This means being as healthy as you are able to be; it is not limited to modest and attractive dress.
3. Exercise is essential to our health.
4. The media is a false messenger; do not believe its lies about your body.
5. What God has given us to nourish our bodies cannot be held inferior to the inventions of man.
6. A healthy lifestyle is contagious, share it with others.
7. The greatest satisfaction is never a result of the easiest method.
8. Eat and live in moderation.
9. Respect where your food came from, from Whom it was given, and the journey it underwent before making it to your plate.
10. Relish the satisfaction that comes from doing what is right for the body you were given.

Sarah, are you developing any new rules in your home? If so, what are they, and how is your food journey progressing?
