The point of the MLG community is to help women find wellness at the Living Well. We’ve shared our hearts, welcomed each other into our lives, and are growing together.
Today I want us to do a wellness check- how are you doing? How can we help you?
I love making pneumonics, alliterations, and mantras. Basically I use anything to make my life easier. Let’s just say a Doctor of Pharmacy degree and three babies has not left room in my brain for much else. However, I remember how I would’ve never made it through pharmacy school if it weren’t for pneumonics and alliterations. (Believe me- you don’t want to hear my song to help me remember diabetes drugs).
As we focus here on whole-life wellness, I came up with a little pneumonic- a checklist of sorts- to help us remember each day how we can achieve this wellness.
Are you getting enough WATER daily?
this is the foundation for our spiritual wellness! Are you getting daily time in the Word–either study, reading plans, or memorization?
it’s so apparent to me that what you think about you bring about!! This affirmation part of the equation involves bringing every thought captive. It also includes anything you use to snap yourself out of that downward spiral or to encourage you to push play on the exercise DVD. In fact, MUST LOVE GOD is one of those very affirmations. When thinking and praying about this community, the terms “must love God” fit perfectly. When things are all going wrong, all the kids are crying, dinner is burning, remember, it all comes down to this- I must love God. Another one- “eat clean, move more, refresh daily” and “turn north”.
it’s my word for 2012 but I’ll let you use it too!! Much like affirmations, giving thanks in ALL THINGS reminds me to slow down, change my thinking, and focus on Him.
this is not an easy one for me…I want so badly to be fit and healthy but the actual getting out and exercising…oh that is hard. But, I will challenge you to add purposeful movement to your day. Not athletic? Neither am I!! But I’m finding some super fun tools from YouTube, the App store, and Peak 313. What is your favorite way to energize?
in this pneumonic, refresh actually stands for what we eat and drink. Filling ourselves with nutrient dense foods makes such a difference in our days. As I’ve been tinkering with my own personal diet, I’m learning so much about what foods make me feel good and what foods don’t!!
Can this pneumonic of WATER help you with your daily goals? What are some ways you can incorporate WATER into your life?
