Day 13: Health

Begin 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?
