The sun is out and it’s time to soak up every ounce of Vitamin D that we can!
On our Summer Journey to practice healthy disciplines we’ve been STEPPIN, AND SIPPIN AND NOW WE ARE READY TO PRACTICE SOAKIN!
Vitamin D is an essential nutrient to our overall health and well-being. While other essential vitamins and nutrients must be sought after, this one is easy to find!
Just step outside!
The Creator of the Universe made this one so simple to soak in! In God’s perfect creation, the sun does a beautiful job of distributing vitamin D in abundance!
It just requires, once again, that we discipline ourselves to get STEPPIN! Walk outside and SOAK in the lovely rays the sun provides. It will flood your body with healing, healthy vitamin D and fill your spirit with “happy endorphins!”
Endorphins are; “brain vertebrates that react with the brain’s opiate receptors to raise the pain threshold.” In other words, they are the magic God put inside us to tolerate pain better and feel good!
Endorphins are our “HAPPY HELPERS!”
In order to activate them we need to step outside and soak in the Sun’s rays!
Vitamin D does not come from the sun, it is obtained through natural sources like fish or supplements. Then vitamin D is obtained by irradiating it with ultraviolet light, AKA the SUN, and is essential to maintaining healthy bones and teeth!
The Bible tells us that,
“A merry heart is good like a medicine.”
It’s those endorphins at work within us producing a happy, healthy and merry heart! Not to mention healthy bones and teeth!
AS YOU SOAK IN THE RAYS OF THE SUN, ALLOW THE SON OF GOD TO MAKE YOUR HEART HAPPY!
So, this week I’m adding discipline number seven to my summer Steppin!
