Grains, fruits, nuts, and vegetables constitute the diet chosen for us by our Creator. These foods prepared in as simple and natural a manner as possible, are the most healthful and nourishing. They impart a strength, a power of endurance, and a vigor of intellect, that are not afforded by a more complex and stimulating diet." Counsels on Diet and Foods, page 310.

How do you feel?
One of the best things we can do for our physical, mental and emotional health is not to borrow trouble from one day to the other. Worry affects the immune system in a negative way. The production of defensive cells in the bone marrow decreases. Science has confirmed that the words of the Bible are right: "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones." Proverbs 17:22.
"A contented mind, a cheerful spirit, is health to the body and strength to the soul. Nothing is so fruitful a cause of disease as depression, gloominess, and sadness. Mental depression is terrible." Medical Ministry, page 106.
"-Removing Depression Hastens Recovery-Because God's love is so great and so unfailing, the sick should be encouraged to trust in Him and be cheerful. To be anxious about themselves tends to cause weakness and disease. If they will rise above depression and gloom, their prospect of recovery will be better; for 'the eye of the Lord is upon them . . . that hope in His mercy' (Psalm 33:18)." Mind, Character, and Personality, Volume 2, page 482.
-Mental Depression, Effects on Health-Sadness deadens the circulation in the blood vessels and nerves, and also retards the action of the liver. It hinders the process of digestion and of nutrition, and has a tendency to dry up the marrow of the whole system. . . . Mental depression causes dyspepsia, and this aggravates the mental disorder." Letter 1, 1883.
People think a lot and worry a lot about their homes and lands down here in this earth, but we read about a building made by God and not by human hands that is for the obedient and we want an inheritance that doesn't vanish with disaster or decays with the passing of time. We want a home on the earth made new. All that we have in this life is uncertain. We could meet with losses and discouragements but in that home all will be new and shall remain for all ages. How short-sighted we human beings are if we place all of our affections on the things of this life and lose sight of the things that last eternally! How important it is to understand the conditions that will enable us to obtain that eternal inheritance!
"And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever." Daniel 2:44.
Christ has said: "Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: and yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to-day is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your Heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." Matthew 6:28-34.
"-Amusements Excite, but React in Depression- Amusements excite the mind, but depression is sure to follow. Useful labor and physical exercise will have a more healthful influence upon the mind and will strengthen the muscles, improve the circulation, and will prove a powerful agent in the recovery of health" Mind, Character, and Personality, Volume 2, page 646.
