Welcome to yet another great edition of carnival of healing .
Let me start by thanking all who submitted useful and practical advice filled articles to this edition of the carnival. I noticed a lot of the articles submitted were on physical well being and that is rightfully a huge part of our healing but I also feel that binge eating and not exercising and not taking care of our bodies etc. stem primarily from the way we are on the inside, how we feel about our current situations.
So, one of the major steps towards healing is to continuously be open to learning new skills for the changing circumstances throughout life :
to stop the negative thinking cycle and calm the storms on the inside,
to forgive people as well as circumstances that are beyond our control
to break free from limiting beliefs
to love ourselves
I am sure there are many more skills that help with healing and without further ado, here is some great reading material this weekend.

Pastor WD Favour presents Do You Have An Addiction? | wdfavour.com posted at wdfavour.com, saying, “Do you have an addiction? Do a personal check right away.

What are the risk factors and what precautions should you take to avoid injury? And what about everybody’s favorite exercise; the sit-up? Is it really good for building core strength, or is it a dangerous practice? Since most health and fitness-minded people insist on “working those abs,” is there a way to perform sit-ups and crunches that minimizes the risk factors while actually enhancing results?”
