Coming to terms

Last Friday I was given such sad news that one of my aunty passed away due to health related factors from diabetes to heart failure. I have cried everyday since then. My family has the issues with diabetes. i had been checked and found I'm close to diabetes by one point. For me that has my eye opened and I do want to have a much fulfilling life. It is scary. I do need tools on how to do that. I started to do light yoga and hope that being more active and eating healthier will help me. I hope that we can all support one another and continue to encite positive words. Please help me on my journey to live better. Thank you for your time in reading my post.

    You have my deepest sympathy shadowy,and along with prayer,steps you might want to take are keeping your weight under control,by reducing saturated fats,cholesterol,processed and"fast food"increase consumption of fruit an vegetables etc; Start a daily exercise regimen,take steps to regulate your blood pressure,eliminate smoking,limit your alcohol intake as much as possible....I'll keep you before the Lord in prayer also. Have a blessed day,and stay hopeful!!
