I think you are absolutely right to connect growing spiritual health with also growing physical health. Certainly I see the same connection in my life. Seeking growth in either involves a commitment to regular serious efforts. In both, devoting lots of time is not as important as being faithful to regular, daily effort. I start my day with the daily Mass readings, then at least 2 chapters of the Bible - I am reading it through again, and listening to Saint of the Day to hear a story of Our Lord's successes in another period of church history. I find that sets the tone for my day, and makes my housework go faster and more efficiently. Then I go to exercise, for about an hour now, half cardio, half strength. But when I started, 10 minutes was all I could do. The exercise boosts my metabolism, relieves any stress, and helps me deal with the rest of my day. First things first works!
