Health tips from “40 Days to Better Living — Optimal Health”
By Dr. Scott Morris
Church Health Center of Memphis
- Obesity tends to reduce the percentage of water in your body. If you are overweight, you should be drinking even more water. You should be drinking about eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day.
- Know the signs of a heart attack: chest pain that feels like squeezing, pressure or pain; pain or discomfort in the jaw, back, neck, arms or stomach; shortness of breath; cold sweat and nausea or lightheadedness.
- If you have wounds, they should heal more or less within a week. If they don’t, see a doctor.
- If you are on prescribed medications and start feeling better, don’t stop taking the medication just because you feel better. Check with your doctor first.
- An important aspect of overall health is oral health. Make sure you have a dental appointment set. You should have a checkup and teeth cleaning every six months.
From the Twitterverse...
People in ministry have a tendency to run until they collapse. It is important to take care of your staff.

Don’t equate the presence of God with a good mood or a pleasant temperament. God is near whether you are happy or not.

A mission statement is of little value unless it is clear to your people and leads to specific action.

When you judge someone, you only see their flaws. When you love someone, you always look for the best in them.

Life’s too important to be petty. Ignore little hurts & keep moving.

[God’s] purpose is not just to answer our prayers, but that through prayer we might come to discern His mind.
Thank you, Jennifer, for the article on prayer in the May 3 issue. I would like to see more on prayer as I know it to be the power source for us and if ever we needed power (to live our lives as Christ would have us to live), now is the time. I agree that we must be disciplined not to make the “I’ll pray for you” just a statement but actually mean sincere, deep prayer.
I enjoyed the tips offered on prayer and found a new one in No. 8 — Ask Questions. I will be exercising that also.
Thank you again for your writings and your work at The Alabama Baptist.
