What do you do to:
- to care for your body
Truth to tell, I don't take good care of my body. My ambitious plan to walk a local (mostly abandoned) mall lasted a couple of months, then petered out when I got sick early this year.
- to care for your spirit
Coincidentally, I'm off to care for my spirit this afternoon. I'm going to the annual "Guitar Weekend" sponsored by my church, which will be at a camp center in southeastern Oklahoma.
Additionally, I'm striving to reinstate the discipline of being with people more often. I hope to find just the right balance of alone time and crowd time. At least one evening a week with flesh and blood folk (opposed to those on a TV screen) seems a modest enough goal.
- to care for your mind
I am devoted to life-long learning. I read every day. I read at breakfast, lunch, and during commercial breaks.
- to bring a sparkle to your eye
My feline companion does much to sparkle my eye. She can bring that sparkle when she lies on my lap and purrs.
- to place a spring in your step
My experience to date suggests this is a choice. The trick seems to be to force the body to lead the emotions. That is to say, one can chose to hold his head up, and to walk briskly. I have noticed that I do feel better emotionally when I do this.
- Bonus which one on the list are you determined to put into action?
In addition to the discipline of spending more time around people, I hope to reinstate the discipline of walking.
