Reflections: body, mind, and spirit.

Here's what I've been doing for Body, Mind, and Spirit.


BODY

I recently got back from a trip to Sedona, Arizona. It was SO MUCH FUN! Credit to my dear friend who had us out on a beautiful hiking trip in the incredible red rock. This was great for body, mind, and spirit. In total, we got seven miles in the wonder of nature with great company. I was feeling blessed, energized, and joyful all at once.


Challenge for you:

Take a walk or hike in nature. It could be at your local park or on a beach while you are on vacation. No headphones or social media. Just take in the sights and sounds and...just breathe...



MIND

This past month I started a reading challenge. If you have been following GreenNote Fitness for a while, you know I love books. So many books, so little time - you must make time for books, yes? Also, what I'm learning from this challenge is the importance of reading, how to think more critically, and how to turn insights into action. Just like training, one must devote time to reading.


Challenge for you:

Read more. Make reading a practice. Find the time of day that works for you. Set aside just 30 minutes a day. After a week you will have read for 3.5 hours and in a month 14 hours. Here is a reading list to get you started.


SPIRIT

When you are in nature, one can't help but feel more connected to a higher power. That is exactly how I felt on my trip to Sedona. Wherever I am, I most enjoy the quiet and stillness. I'm reminded of a quote from Ryan Holiday's, Stillness is the Key - "...We can't pray our soul into better condition. We've got to move and live our way there. It will take our body - our habits, our actions, our rituals, our self-care - to get our mind and our spirit in the right place, just as it takes our mind and spirit to get our body to the right place...It's a trinity. A holy one. Each part dependent on the others."


Challenge for you:

Prioritize your body, mind, and spirit. What are your habits? Rituals? Actions? Are they moving you closer to a balanced life? Make it so.


Quote I'm reading

By Mark Twain

"A person who does not read good books has no advantage over a person who cannot read."

To your reflection and health,
