Hello Beloved! So grateful for another Saturday to share with you, as we lay the groundwork for a sustainable self-care plan that will get our temples ready to do all that God has purposed for them to do. This week's tip and call to action is to identify a wellness partner. Ecclesiastes 4: 9 - 12, NIV reads:
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
We are creatures of habit. Even when the habits do not prosper us, we struggle to break them--we struggle to change. Establishing a clear WHY for the change we undertake, S.M.A.R.T goals and plan to meet those goals, are essential steps to supporting our difficult work of beginning something new. Having a wellness partner hit the road or mat with you, can make all the difference. This week we encourage you to prayerfully select a friend to walk, run, barre, etc. this road to wellness with you. Below are some traits we believe to be an invaluable asset in a wellness partner:
If you are just joining us, we are working our way through the tips outlined in 8 Tips to Stay Motivated Throughout the Year, with the help of supplemental resources.
Happy temple building!
Take care. Bless many.
