Day 13: Health


40day-yellowBegin with the Prayer of Abandonment.

Today’s theme is “health.”  Are you taking care of yourself? When was the last time the two of you did something really healthy together?

  • What was the last healthy meal you cooked together?
  • When was the last time you went on a walk and explored nature?
  • How often do you do something healthy for your mind, such as reading a book aloud . . . together?
  • What is the one habit you know you ought to kick, but never quite get around to following through?

Sometimes in all the hustle-bustle, healthy habits can go out the window. But tending to the needs of body, mind, and spirit is important not just for you, but for your spouse (who needs a strong partner) and your family. I’m saying this as much to myself as anyone: When you exercise and eat right and hydrate properly, the whole world becomes a brighter and more welcoming place. And when you don’t … well, the dog starts to hide. Right?

Just for today, what is one thing you can do to improve your health, and to stay healthy for the one you love?
