Focal Scripture for this Renewal: Psalm 139
Spring Renewal is your special time to see you in a special way. We all have habits that we've adopted to our daily lives. Some are health giving and others are health compromising. This challenge is an ideal opportunity to evaluate and fine tune our personal habits in a way that will have lasting impact on our weight, health and well being.
Look at your patterns/habits....list the pros and cons:
- Eating. When do you eat? When you're truly hungry, to alleviate stress or for comfort?
- Sleep. Do you sleep before midnight? Are you getting at least 7 hrs. per night?
- Smoking. Do you need help in quitting once and for all?
-Alcohol. How much are you drinking? Could it be sabotaging your diet/health?
-Recreational Drugs. Have they been affecting your choices and your life?
-Relationships. Are they life giving and elevating? Are they toxic and draining?
Find time to move your body in fun and unique ways by:
-Taking the stairs
-Riding your bike
-Walking 30 minutes throughout the day
-Bouncing on a mini-trampoline/rebounder
-Park in the back of parking lots
-Stretch your body through yoga or other movement
-Clean your house
-Care for your own yard
Learn to care for yourself & your health by:
-Regular dry skin brushing before bathing/showering
