Can Sitting Be Dangerous to Your Health

danvitalsquatDid you know that long term sitting could be more dangerous to your health than smoking.  That’s what recent studies have indicated.  Not that sitting is bad, but maybe the way we sit is the issue.

Experiencing Nature Benefits Your Health

Our Creator has given us a mighty blessing in the natural surroundings He’s given us.  The trees, grass, streams of water and wildlife can have profound affect upon your well-being.  In the recent past, I have experienced this gift from God in a more intimate manner.  I spend lots of time in my backyard woods. I say backyard woods, because our house stands about 20 feet away from our wooded property.

During this time of intimacy Continue reading
