Excerpt from our interview — BEEP Model

Kimberley
Wow, those are fantastic strategies. I love the “breath pause”. And I love the idea of including your health in your morning prayer. You’re right, it’s so easy to be creatures of habit and just go on autopilot so those are fantastic strategies.

Now, we’re going to move on to the BEEP round. Cathy will give quick tips on the four disciplines of Bible study, eating healthy, exercise, and prayer or BEEP. So what do you have for us for a quick tip for Bible study?

Cathy
Well for Bible study, want I like to do is to search out specific topics around health or around an area that I might be struggling with. As we talked about noticing earlier, notice if it’s a self-esteem challenge that you’re having. Is it an anger issue that you’re having with your health that is causing you to eat. Is it even laziness? If it’s laziness call it that. Take some time and search the scriptures and study what God’s word says about those particular areas about health that is affecting your health and causing you to be overwhelmed or overweight. Even search out the word overwhelmed. What does the Bible say about that? And then use that to minister to you as you go on about your day.

Kimberley
Wonderful. And your quick tip about eating healthy?

Cathy
Eating healthy, easy—track it. I always say, “If you can’t measure it you can’t manage it.” So track what you’re eating. Take the time, write it down, plug it into one of the many apps available but you’ve got to track what you’re eating in order to stay on top of your health.

Kimberley
“If you can’t measure it you can’t manage it”. I love it!
And your quick tip for exercise?

Cathy
My quick tip for exercise would be to look for ways to move throughout your day. I like the gym but I actually tell most of my clients, forget the gym, go for a walk. What can you do throughout your day to find ways to move. Become inefficient. Take the laundry up the stairs one sock at a time. Get an inefficient habit so you can look for more ways to move throughout your day.

Kimberley
I like that, become inefficient. You never really hear that, do we?

Cathy
No, you know you want to take in all the groceries at once right? Well, take it in one bag at a time.

Kimberley
Alright. And your quick tip for prayer?

Cathy
My quick tip for prayer would be to allow prayer to set your tone for the day. That is the time where you take the time to ground yourself and as I was saying earlier include your health into your morning prayer and let that be the tone. Once you make health part of your morning prayer, that’s going to set the tone for whether you’re going to eat the chips or the salad. Because you’ve already turned it over as you started your day. Allow it to set the tone by including health into your morning prayer.
