I am going to examine Healthier Habits from the spiritual side. The goal for most of us is to be happy and if you have healthy habits you will feel better, be less negative and your mind will be more free to increase your spirituality.
I am not going to spend time here telling you what health habits are, you already know.
A lot of what I talk about is common thinking for all Science Of Mind ministers of which I am.
Ernest Holmes founder of Science of Mind says This: "Back in the subjective are the images of thought surrounding us, all acting as living intelligence. It is here that habits are formed; for when one has a habit that he cannot seem to break he is hypnotized by the thought and desire back of that habit; the thought force has grown too strong to be controlled. Habits are healed by neutralizing the thought forces behind them."
Know your own mind; train yourself to think what you wish to think; be what you wish to be; feel what you wish to feel; and place no limit on Principle. The words which you speak will be just as powerful as the words which Jesus spoke. The key to all of this is, It must be felt and believed with no reservations.
Remember our only limitations is what we put into the universe by way of our thinking. What do I mean by this? There is only ONE GOD and this One Spirit "there is nothing else" is in and part of everything. We also call this Mind! There is only one Mind and this mind is God.
Spirit is Self-Knowing, but Law is automatic and obeys the will of Spirit, having no alternative other than to obey.
You know the term cause and effect. What you say and think goes into the universal mind as cause and reflects back to you as effect.
Law is Mind in action, God, Universe or the Creator, what ever term you find comfortable with. Each religion or belief has there own God, which I believe are all the same. There is only ONE GOD.
Edgar Cayce says this: “God’s Mind” is a creative energy—a conscious and intelligent force composed of Love, Harmony and Beauty, and is omnipotent and omnipresent. According to the interpretation in the Gospel of St. John, the Light which was in Jesus was the same Light out of which the world was created."
They say that changing a habit takes about 21 days. This means that you must keep all negative thinking and that also means being negative about what you see and experience. It will take practice and patience on your part. Remember that you are a product of your environment and to make changes might be challenging so be kind to yourself and keep trying.
Look at it this way. You wake up meditate, get your mind in a good place then leave the house and say look at this terrible traffic, all these homeless people, what about all this trash. You get the point. What we think and do is very important. The Laws of the universe are very specific. What you say and think really will reflect back to you.
What this essentially means is you can never be wrong. Every thing you do is perfect. The Law only has one purpose, that is to create. It does, not know right from wrong.
Now I say this for effect. Even if you hate who you are you are doing it perfectly. You may be the most negative person in the world, but if you look hard at yourself, you did practice this behavior for a long time. The opposite of anything can happen with change.
Never put to much focus on that which you do not want, because too much focus can create. The laws of the universe are impartial. They only respond to your thoughts and actions. Healthier Habits come from putting one foot in front of each other and striving every day to make subtle changes.

Written By Richard Bach
The book tells the story of Jonathan Livingston Seagull, a seagull who is bored with the daily squabbles over food. Seized by a passion for flight, he pushes himself, learning everything he can about flying, until finally his unwillingness to conform results in his expulsion from his flock. An outcast, he continues to learn, becoming increasingly pleased with his abilities as he leads a peaceful and happy life.
One day, Jonathan is met by two gulls who take him to a "higher plane of existence" in that there is no heaven but a better world found through perfection of knowledge, where he meets other gulls who love to fly. He discovers that his sheer tenacity and desire to learn make him "pretty well a one-in-a-million bird." In this new place, Jonathan befriends the wisest gull, Chiang, who takes him beyond his previous learning, teaching him how to move instantaneously to anywhere else in the Universe. The secret, Chiang says, is to "begin by knowing that you have already arrived." Not satisfied with his new life, Jonathan returns to Earth to find others like him, to bring them his learning and to spread his love for flight. His mission is successful, gathering around him others who have been outlawed for not conforming. Ultimately, the very first of his students, Fletcher Lynd Seagull, becomes a teacher in his own right and Jonathan leaves to teach other flocks.
