COLUMBIA, KY -- Leading a balanced life can lead to a happy life.
That was the advice Dr. Chris Peters of Louisville, KY, delivered at the second-annual Lindsey Wilson College Dr. Henry Baughman Lecture, held Tuesday, October 22, 2013.
"Does leading a balanced life guarantee happiness? No. But I guarantee if you strive towards a balanced life, then happiness is much more likely to be a byproduct of that," Peters told more than 100 LWC students, faculty, staff and guests at the Norma and Glen Hodge Center for Discipleship.
Peters, an associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Louisville, gave the audience his "Top 10 List" of things to do to enhance health and wellness: mindfulness; accurate thinking; mindset; moderation; nutrition; sleep; exercise; thankfulness; serving; and engagement.
"Focus on your breathing. It helps de-clutter the mind," said Peters, who specializes in sports medicine, depression and adolescent psychology. "Breathing is something we have with us all the time, right? At least we hope so."
Peters reminded the audience of how often people go against what they know to be right.
"Don't procrastinate," he said. "That's stress' best friend. Don't avoid things. If you want to avoid something, I tell people you need to go do it right now. Just get it off the plate.
" Peters said people are surprised how engagement can make a difference in their life.
"Engage the things that are most challenging," he said. "Don't hide from them and don't run from them. The important thing to do in life is act."
