To withstand Great post and do not harm the health, it is important to know the measure and not to forget about prayer.

Asking for forgiveness from everyone who might offend, and sincerely forgiven the offender, the Orthodox and Greek-Catholics noted forgiveness Sunday. It was the last day of preparation for the Great lent, which began on Monday, on March 18 and will last until the Easter (this year the Orthodox and the Greek Catholic Church celebrates the day of the Resurrection of Christ on may 5).

To pass this test without risk to health and to the benefit of the soul, it is important to know a few rules.

1. Post – not a diet

Great post – very long and important of all posts, and to sustain its many fasting is not easy. It is important to remember that the post is not a diet, and withdrawal of скоромной (animal origin) of the food is important, but far not the most important of its components. First of all, this is a time of prayer and repentance. Therefore, during a time of fasting need to

to withdraw from the entertainment and celebration, as well as from sexual life.

But strictly adhere to all without an exception of the rules in our days it is not all even very religious people. In fact, during the Great lent, except for a few days relaxation, especially religious Christians do not consume even vegetable oil, and in some days prohibited any cooked (not crude) food. Fish are allowed to use only in the feast of the Annunciation (April 7) and Palm Sunday (April 28).

«Without fanaticism» should fast and patients with chronic diseases. If health everything seems in order, but in a time of fasting are having problems with the well – –

talk to a priest, whether or not to restrict itself to the food and on.

With some diseases from the post for health reasons would have to refuse in General, particularly for diseases of the digestive tract.

The people who are in the way, not having the opportunity to influence their diet (for example, prisoners) or engaged in a very hard physical work, may also not be fast.

3. Remember the sense of measures

However, easing concern mainly physical, but not the spiritual part of the post. Although the measure is important in everything. And if, for example, on the work you have to be in the room where the thunders a festive party, we should not be too execute (but also get involved in the General fun, of course, not worth it).

About the sense of measures have not forgotten and those who refused to animal food, while forgetting about the restrictions in the food at all. Of course, from fast food, too, you can cook many tasty dishes, but if you eat too much by the «allowed» food, this is already can hardly be considered fasting.

However, those who are fasting with prayer, excesses yourself and do not allow it.

4. Limit yourself at least in something

The most important thing in these days is to learn how to resist temptation. Do not consume animal products at all? So, try to limit yourself to something else: the beloved-sweet water, watching your favorite television series. By the way, the TV during the Great fast is better not to include.

5. Rejoice!

Lent is a time of abstinence and reflection on the eternal, but in no case of depression. Instead of feeling sorry for yourself, abandoning the usual glass of beer or a sandwich with sausage, rejoice in this, that in this moment become a little clearer.
