Good Health, Good Life by Joyce Meyer

Joyce Meyer, #1 New York Times bestselling author, understands that modern life is hectic and has created a practical plan for achieving good health, one day at a time. Her easy-to-use 12-Key Plan for Good Health will help you develop life-changing habits for a healthier lifestyle, no matter what your current level of health. By following her simple, yet effective tips on eating, exercise, rest, and stress management, you will unlock a new level of well-being, empowering you to live the fulfilling life you were meant to lead.

My Review: Good Health, Good Life: 12 Keys to Enjoying Physical and Spiritual Wellness, published by FaithWords, is based on material previously published in Look Great, Feel Great. But this smaller, more compact version is very handy to carry with you or to keep nearby when you need some positive encouragement and advice on changes you can make to lead a healthier lifestyle.

The 12 chapters, or keys, are filled with practical common sense advice that we have all heard, but certainly bears repeating. Each chapter is short, but packs a message that we all need to learn about taking care of ourselves. The 12 keys are:

1. Get God's Help
2. Learn to Love Your Body
3. Master Your Metabolism
4. Exercise
5. Eat in Balanced Ways
6. Water Your Life
7. Be Mindful About Eating
8. Curb Your Spiritual Hunger
9. De-Stress
10. Live With The Right Vision
11. Make It Easy
12. Take Responsibility

At the end of each message, Meyer lists 5 actions that expand upon what she said to bring clarity or to help you successfully follow through with what you have learned. The final thing in each chapter is Act on It! She provides a place for you to write down and commit what you plan to do to implement the lesson learned into your current lifestyle. These are lessons Meyer has learned from experience. I recommend this for people who want to start making healthier choices.

I received this book at no cost to myself from the Hatchette Book Group for review purposes. I was not required to write a positive review.
