Mental Health Guide


Introduction

The mind is strongly affected by both spiritual and physical things. But it also strongly influences both spiritual and physical health. Emotions are a big part of this influence.

Mental

  1. The Mind needs nutrition, rest, exercise, etc also

    Crossword puzzles, Logic puzzles, Video games, etc.
    Reading, sleeping, meditating, Bible study,...

  2. How do you detox the mind?

    I use gentle instrumental music - the simple mathematical patterns are easy for the mind to follow without having to think.
    Sometimes a funny movie without too much "evil" stuff can help:
    Prov 17:22  A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones.

  3. Carnal mind vs Spiritual

    Rom 8:5  For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.
    Rom 8:6  For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
    Rom 8:7  Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.
    Rom 8:8  So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
    Rom 8:9  But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.
    Rom 8:10  And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
    Rom 8:11  But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

    Mark 7:15  "There is nothing that enters a man from outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man.
    Mark 7:16  "If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear!"
    Mark 7:17  When He had entered a house away from the crowd, His disciples asked Him concerning the parable.
    Mark 7:18  So He said to them, "Are you thus without understanding also? Do you not perceive that whatever enters a man from outside cannot defile him,
    Mark 7:19  "because it does not enter his heart but his stomach, and is eliminated, thus purifying all foods?"
    Mark 7:20  And He said, "What comes out of a man, that defiles a man.
    Mark 7:21  "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
    Mark 7:22  "thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness.
    Mark 7:23  "All these evil things come from within and defile a man."

  4. Flee bad stress

    Prov 21:19  Better to dwell in the wilderness, Than with a contentious and angry woman.

    Prov 26:21  As charcoal is to burning coals, and wood to fire, So is a contentious man to kindle strife.
    Prov 26:22  The words of a talebearer are like tasty trifles, And they go down into the inmost body.

    Prov 27:15  A continual dripping on a very rainy day And a contentious woman are alike;
    Prov 27:16  Whoever restrains her restrains the wind, And grasps oil with his right hand.
