“…your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have received from God.” I Corinthians 6:19 (NRSV)
The Health and Wellness program is designed to help UMC members lead healthier lives. Being physically active and eating healthy foods helps keep a person in good shape. Did you know that regular physical activity can:
Prevent high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity?
Help control high blood pressure, diabetes and weight?
Make a person feel well and energized?
Recommendation is 30 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity (like brisk walking) on most days of the week. A person is never too old to start moving!
Below are health and wellness inserts that can be used in a congregation to encourage members to engage in physical activity and healthy habits.
