of chronic disease, and live a healthy lifestyle see sample tips below from Choose
My Plate ( Also see the flyer on the “S Desk” for 10 tips
on building a healthy meal.
Balancing Calories
Enjoy your food, but eat less.
Avoid oversized portions.
Foods to Increase
Make half your plate fruits and vegetables.
Make at least half your grains whole grains.
Switch to fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk.
Foods to Decrease
Compare sodium in foods like soup, bread,
and frozen meals—and choose foods with lower numbers.
Drink water instead of sugary drinks.
Healthy eating and physical activity work hand in hand to help us live healthier
lives. The Physical Activity Guidelines recommend that adults be physically active
for at least 2 hours and 30 minutes each week—children need 60 minutes each
day. You can stay physically active by doing activities such as walking, dancing,
bicycling, or gardening and by reducing the amount of time you spend sitting.

Marriage Builder
3 Steps to Resolving Anger in Your Marriage
If we are going to have true intimacy in our marriages, we have to disarm the
issues that hinder it. One of those is anger. Anger can be destructive in a
marriage. The first thing I want you to know is that anger is inevitable. It's a normal
response. You will never be so spiritual that you don't get angry. Jesus even got
angry. Great marriages still have anger.
Anger that occurs today is manageable. There's nothing wrong with it. But
yesterday's anger is a very dangerous thing. Ephesians 4:26-27 says, "Be angry,
and do not sin: Do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the
devil.” What that passage means is that anger, if it is not dealt with, can become
toxic and destructive. It can harden hearts. It has to be resolved in a righteous
way. If it is not dealt with—if you let the sun "go down" on it—then it builds in
intensity for the next time.
God never designed us to be a repository for anger. We are made for anger to
enter for a brief time, and then leave. Never to stay. That's why the Bible is so
insistent on forgiveness, because we can't endure it. Unforgiveness and pent-up
anger are corrosive on every level.
So we must resolve anger in marriage. How should we do it?
First, we need to choose the right setting. Don't do it around the kids. Your
children need to watch you relate and talk things out, but serious issues should be
handled in private when your emotions are under control.
Second, begin every confrontation with affirmation. Research indicates that a
conversation never rises above the level of the first three minutes. The way you
start talking to each other dictates how the conversation will end. If you begin
with threats, you've already set a negative tone for the conversation. Instead,
begin by saying, "I love you and I'm glad that we're married, but I need to talk to
you about something.”
Finally, communicate your complaint without fixed judgments or interpretations.
There's a difference between complaining and criticizing. Complaining is talking
about me and my feelings, but without interpreting it—because I don't know
what's in your heart.
Criticizing is an attack. It's me telling you how you're feeling and interpreting your
motives. It makes the other person defensive. Complaints should be about a
specific issue ("You said this and it made me feel stressed out") rather than a
global one ("You never do anything around here"). Don't go to bed angry.
Create in your marriage a habit of dealing with it every day. When you do deal
with conflict, do it the right way: respectfully, with kindness and a tender heart.
