Life is a matter of balance and most of us struggle each day to find balance between home and work, anger and happiness, forgiveness and holding grudges and a million other things.
Balance in all areas of life is where true happiness lies and where we find peace. Not only with others but within ourselves.
I want to try something for those of you who are willing to truly embrace the concept of Mind, Body and Soul. I want to challenge each of you to do the following for one week. Just try and then at the end of the week, see if you have recognized anything in your life that might be out of balance with what you are truly trying to attract in your life. If this isn’t your thing…then don’t do it. If it is, feel free to share you findings and thoughts with me as the week progresses or at the end. Or, just keep it for your own personal awareness. The challenge is:
Body: Write down what you do to promote your physical well being in terms of your fitness (wods). Write down everything you put into your mouth. Yes, one M&M needs to be written down. Food, drink, supplements, vitamins, medicines…everything.
Mind: Grab a PCF wrist band off the front desk. This week every time you feel angry, say something mean or think it, any time you have any negative thought or emotion, snap the wrist band to remind you to let that thought go. It really doesn’t serve in good in your life. Write down how many times each day you are inflicting pain upon yourself.
Soul: Take 5 minutes each day to either be silent (mini meditation) or google something positive like love, forgiveness, happiness, etc. Any emotion that will promote a positive reaction with you. If doing the silence, each time a thought comes in your head, focus on your breathing. Learn to be quiet so your true self can communicate with you!
If members enjoy this, each week I will post the following weeks challenge. Hopefully, we can all learn a little about the things we need to let go of and find a few things that can enhance our lives.
