One Healthy Habit that Changed My Life

As a 42-year-old woman I can honestly say I’ve spent at least half of my life or more attempting to find ways to be “healthy”. Like most people I start something new and think I’m going to stick with it this time and then fall off the wagon at some point and find myself at square one all over again.

On top of all the try again stop again yo-yoing; I end up feeling bad about myself while negative self-talk and defeating thoughts begin to weigh me down.

Can you relate?

But something dawned on my recently after a spiritual retreat I hosted. For the last twenty plus years I’ve practiced one healthy habit through ever trial, heartache, triumph and victory that has consistently brought me to better health. And with this practice I can honestly say I would not be the person I am today without it. It’s something that I don’t do every single day of my life, but it is something I reach for in times of deep struggle, frustration, anxiety and in times of reflection, hope, prayer, planning and dreaming.

The one healthy habit that continues to change my life and has for years is journaling.

There is no specific way to journal, it’s simply picking up a pen and putting it to paper. It can be one word or hundreds of words. You simply let your heart, mind and emotions lead you. I want to encourage you that even if you’re someone who does not like to write, you must give it a try!

I promise this is one new healthy habit that will propel you forward beyond anything you can imagine. Grab a journal and pen today!

I would love to hear from you. Leave me a comment and let me know one of your healthy habits.

Let’s Remove the Stigma

Will you join me in removing the stigma of mental illness?

Transformation Church and Rick & Kay Warren are passionate about the body of Christ coming together and removing the stigma society has placed on mental illness. Six years ago when I had cancer I received an outpouring of unconditional love and support even from strangers while I was sick, but I dare to say if I was struggling from mental illness I would receive the same support.

Kay Warren delivered a powerful message at Transformation Church last Sunday. Watch here. “Research shows 1 in 5 children and 1 in 5 adults in America will be affected by mental illness in a given year. Although millions of people are impacted by mental illness, people often feel isolated, alone, and unsure of where to turn for help and hope.” Saddleback Church will be having a special event The Gathering on Mental Health & The Church on October 7–9, 2015.
