1. Remind yourself of the commitment you have made to work on the needed lifestyle changes that will boost your immunity. Keep persevering! You probably have noted some changes already in your health, and the result is surely worthwhile the effort.
2. Take your list of stressors, look especially at those who worry you most, and commit each of them in God’s care. Do you have faith that He is able to take care of all of those problems? You are not neglecting your responsibility, but you are committing to Him the things that you are not able to resolve. For further reading check out this article:
3. Analyze your life to see if you have created some idols that are replacing God, or whether you have created habits that permit Satan to ruin your life. Remember, God has given us a free will to exercise, and you will be responsible for the consequences of wrong choices you do in your life.
4. Celebrate next Saturday as a day of rest. It is an invitation of God to put aside all your worries of this week and trust that He will take care of it all. Invite your family for a nature outing if possible. Put aside all work activities including household chores and take some time to connect with God. Maybe you want to watch a very timely sermon:

On our day of rest we do not want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Use plenty of fruits and salads. If you go back the last two days you will find some very easy recipes to choose from. Additionally we have provided a few super simple recipes for you. Just check them out:
Baked Hash Browns
Hashbrowns are a classic breakfast food. The problem with traditional hashbrowns is they are cooked in a skillet with a lot of oil. Our recipe is baked in the oven, is much healthier, and tastes just as good.
2 pounds hash browns (sliced potatoes)
1 cup finely diced onions
1/2 cup cashews, raw
3/4 cup water
2 tablespoons chicken flavoring
1/2 tablespoons onion powder
1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1. Add your ingredients except the potatoes and onions to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
2. Combine the mixture with the onions and hashbrowns and mix well.
3. Place everything onto a non-stick cookie sheet and bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. (You’ll know it is done when the edges are brown.
Enjoy your healthy oven-baked hashbrowns!

Baked French Fries
Take 3-4 potatoes washed and unpeeled; any variety (russet, Yukon Gold, sweet potato, or yam), cut into ½-inch wide sticks. Place cut potatoes on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 400º F for 15 minutes. Take out, flip them over and bake for another 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
2 cups tomato sauce
1/4 cup chopped onion
clove of garlic
1 Tbs yeast flakes
1 Tbs honey
1 teaspoon of oregano, basil or marjoram
pinch of salt
Add 1 Tbs or two of virgin olive oil if required. Add all ingredients to blender and mix together.
Spaghetti with Cashew Sauce
Cook a pack (500g) of whole wheat spaghetti, adding salt and a pinch of turmeric to the water. If you want to speed up the process, you can put them into a pressure cooker. After it starts steaming, wait for about 7 minutes to be ready, depending on the spaghetti brand.
For the sauce, hydrate 1 cup of toasted cashews for 2 hours. Blend them with 1 cup of water, 1 clove of garlic and 1 teaspoon of salt.
