Body, Mind, Spirit — How’s it going?

So how have you been?  Let’s spend a few minutes checking in.

  • How’s life going for you?
  • Are you eating like you’re going to live to 125?
  • Are you working out regularly?  Cardio?  Resistance training (weights)?
  • Are you taking time for you – resting, thinking, creating?
  • How’s your work/business?​
  • How is your spiritual life?  Time with God?  Are you growing?

Every once in a while it’s good to step back and take a look at ourselves — body, mind, and spirit.  Sometimes I finish this type of quick inventory and nod my head, thinking, “I’m doing pretty well.  I’m achieving some of the goals I’ve set and know what to do to achieve most of the others.”

Other times I reflect and find that I’m out of balance and need to make adjustments to how I am treating my body, mind, and/or spirit.

How about you?  What did your answers to the questions reveal about how you’re doing?  Need to make some changes?

Here are 3 adjustments you can make for your body, mind, and spirit

SPIRIT

A Life of Worship

I started this Bible study for my spiritual growth and was praying about a question when I realized that I had to share this study with other women.  So I’ve set up a Zoom webinar room for us to meet.

We’re starting this Monday, May 1st, at 6pm Pacific. If you don’t have the book yet, that’s fine, we’ll spend the first session getting to know each other and mapping out a plan for the study.  Pop in any time during the hour — we will be starting on time … go for an hour … and call it an evening.

If you can’t attend all the sessions, I’ll be posting the weekly recordings in the private Find Your Voice Facebook group — I’m encouraging everyone to post comments in the group.  So, if you’re not already a member, click on this link to request to join the group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/FindYourVoiceHere/

Here’s the Zoom meeting link: https://zoom.us/j/208525476

If you plan on joining us on Monday, go into the Zoom meeting room now and make sure your audio and video work.  This is going to be an interactive time — no sage on the stage 🙂  It’s all about our lives as they are now and how we can make changes to live a life that worships God.


Any of this info got you thinking?

Let’s spend a few minutes talking about the adjustments you can implement that will make your life even better than it already is.

Secret Sauce for Memorizing Scripture!

I was just reading a blog post by Alison Tiemeyer that shared some ideas for memorizing Scripture. She went into great detail on using one of those 3×5 notecard books. I’ve seen this work for many people and I’ve even used it myself.

I want to add something to this … ready …

Memorize while you’re doing cardio

That’s right …grab those 3×5 cards and get your heart rate up!

Research has shown that when you raise your heart rate into the working zone (that’s around 140+ for me) there are physiological changes occurring in the brain that increase your capacity for learning.  Take a look at the book, Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain, by Dr. John Ratey.

I found out about Ratey’s work when I was still at Illinois State.  One of the exercise physiology professors and I were going to do some research on this topic in my child development class.  I attended a workshop where a PE instructor from the suburbs of Chicago shared how they were using this program to help low-performing high school students improve their math and reading scores.  It was highly successful – here’s the story.

In the same time period I was in a Beth Moore Bible study on the book of James.  Beth challenged all of us to memorize the book of James … each week she shared what she had memorized … and at the end of the course we watched the bonus video that showed her reciting the entire book.

I experienced this back when I was in Seminary and was training for triathlons.  I was riding my bike all over So Cal, so I taped a small card with a Scripture passage to my handle bars so I could memorizing verses while I rode.

>>All I have to say is that I still remember those verses<<

Now I’m not going to go into all the physiology – go ahead and get Ratey’s book – but I am going to encourage you to take your 3×5 cards to the gym, on your walks/jogs, and even waterproof them for the pool. LOL!

Try memorizing while you’re getting your heart rate up … tell me if it makes a difference for you.
