Wellness Challenge - Day 4

We're halfway through the week and I congratulate you for sticking with us!  Drink down that tall glass of water, grab your Bible, and let's get started

ANOINT:  ApplyTransformation to the forehead ("third eye chakra") and over the heart.  You may also diffuse this oil today.

***Transformation is now reformulated to include Idaho blue spruce, palo santo, and ocotea.  These powerful essential oils empower you to replace negative beliefs with uplifting thoughts, changing your overall attitude, emotions, and behavior.***

STUDY:  Keeping your body in shape is a spiritual discipline and requires transforming your mind and body.   Read Isaiah 43:16-29, Romans 12:2, 2 Cor. 3:18, Proverbs 31:17, and 1 Cor. 6:12-20.

JOURNAL: As a Christian, what are your motives for living a life of wellness?  How does it differ from a worldly view?

PRAY: Pray for God to transform and renew your mind, to align your purpose and plans with His.  Ask God to replace any negative thoughts (doubt, fear, negative self image, self pity, etc.) with what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and admirable.

SHARE: Having a body that is strong and well, ready to do the work and will of God, does not necessarily mean that we need to spend hours in the gym each week.  Just like we need to transform our "why" for wellness and fitness, we can also transform our "how".  Think of some creative ways you can strengthen your body without exercising hours a day, and share those with the group.  Today's exercise challenge will help you.

Day 4 Checklist:
✔️Bible Study, Journal, Pray
✔️Drink 5+ glasses of water (the goal we are working towards is to drink half of your body weight in ounces daily)
✔️”Clean” Breakfast and Dinner
✔️ Food Enzyme with dinner (we want to absorb as many nutrients and amino acids as we can from our food)
✔Station Challenge - Take a piece of paper (or several if you have a higher fitness level).  On it write "STOP AND DROP" nice and big.  Tape it somewhere in your house that you will pass by pretty often today.  Today, every time you pass that sign, STOP, Drop what you are doing, and perform 5-20 repetitions of an exercise.  Some examples may include push ups (or wall push ups), jumping jacks, squats, wall sit, calf raises, arm circles, burpees, mountain climbers, "hoe-downs", leg lifts, or another exercise of your choice.  Place a chair by the sign if you need to do seated exercises.  Working or not home the majority of the day?  When you go to the restroom, do a few repetitions of an exercise.  You could also come up with a system where every time you take a phone call you do a chair exercise.  Get creative and be sure to share your ideas on our facebook page.  I try to do 5 push ups and 5 sit ups each diaper change, leg lifts while washing dishes, squats while folding laundry, and a set of hoe downs in the morning.  Occasionally throughout the day our daughter will yell "BURPEE".  It is an easy way to add some strength training throughout the day.
