Is it important for Christians to take care of mind, body and soul?
I have practiced yoga and meditation for several years now. I have found the practice to be very therapeutic healing my mind, body and soul. It has help me handle the stress in my life as well. I have had few migraines when practicing yoga and meditation. I find it interesting that man was created in the image of God and that God is trinity: Father, Son, Holy Spirit. I also find it interesting that we are created with mind, body and soul. Isn't it important that we take care of ourselves in all ways mind, body soul? Jesus tells us to love him mind, body and soul as well. The question isn't can Christians practice yoga but rather shouldn't we do what takes care of the complete self since we are the temple of God? Is it healthy for Christians to neglect any aspect of self in which we were created by God? Do we focus enough on taking care of ourselves? We seem to of course focus on the soul yet don't mention enough the importance of taking care of the body and mind? Why don't we focus more as believers on all three aspects? How have you found the practice of yoga and meditation to be beneficial in your life?
