morning invitations * body-work

here's this week's care-of-your-body worksheet

let's chomp   *   let's move   *   let's splash

and enjoy figuring out how to best honor our bodies

What are those mirror gazing moments like for you?

How is your current health impacting your spiritual life?

Christ honoring.  Grace filled.  No regrets.  Proactive.  Which of these 4 best describes the biggest challenge in tending to your body's wellbeing?

Coffee.  Take it or leave it?  Why?

What about the day's first meal brings a smile?

What's one change you could make to make breakfast healthier?

On a scale of 1 {lousy!} - 10 {magnificent!} how would you rate your activity level?

How do you feel about where you stand in that rating?

What's one subtle change you could put into action to ratchet up the number just a bit?

What is it about water that draws you to its warmth?

The thought of a spa-type bath ... delectable or ho-hum?

What can you change up to make your bathroom more inviting?

  1. I love these questions... got me thinking. And it is true, your health can affect your relationship with Christ. Most people don't even think about that... -

    1. Kind of neat that our health and our relationship with Christ are so intimately entwined, He cares about every part of who we are ... not one thing escapes His interest.

      Thanks for being here, Gingi ... so glad the questions are helpful!

  2. Another great worksheet of thought-full questions, Linda!

  3. I just try to keep going; the very limited activity of which I'm capable hurts - badly - but it seems to be needed to both preserve the ability to do anything, and morale.

    In Him we live, and MOVE, and have our being. Gotta keep moving, I guess.

    1. You just keep on inspiring, Andrew ...

      Glad you're a part of this community.

  4. Linda,
    I love how you remind us of the importance of caring for our bodies and how it can affect our well being. Lately I've noticed, maybe bc I'm in midlife, how important it is to move, even just walking, for my emotional well being. Many blessings to you as you rest this weekend. ((Hugs))

    1. You're so right, Dolly, midlife presents a whole new wake-up call for body, soul, and spirit. My wishes for your weekend are the same, friend ... for rest, renewal, and joy!

  5. I was just saying, "I am turning into mush!". Thank you for the nudge in the right direction, Friend!

    1. I've seen those pictures of you hiking the highest mountains, girl! There's no way you're mushy!


  6. Great questions! Coffee makes me happy. I have made walking a regular activity and even though it is not daily it has become something I look forward to. Looking in the mirror still doesn't do much for me but seeing myself how others see me is beautiful and life-gving. Thank you for questions that stretch the mind and body!

    1. Isn't it amazing how encouraging words can lift the soul, change our self-perceptions, give us renewal!

      That's one of the best things about online community. And I'm so glad you're in my world, friend ...
