I hit snooze this morning. Not the ideal way to start the new year but I was determined to get a full 8 hours of sleep.
Of course with each new year we are inspired to do better and to be better. Unfortunately, many times our resolutions don't quite stick. I technically started my "new" year in August. I know that's weird, but I wanted to make some changes then and I didn't want to wait until January.
Today has been pretty typical so far. I have the day off so I am proudly walking around the house with my light up llama onesie that my little brother got me for Christmas. I experimented with pour over coffee at the suggestion of my friend Joanna. I am not a coffee person, but I do like trying new things and it wasn't too bad! After getting comfy in my chair, I spent some time reading the Bible and thanking God for the new day.
I started thinking about all of you and the goals that you have for this new year. It can honestly be hard to stick to those goals without accountability so I invite you all to join me for a free 90 Day challenge to kickoff the new year.
I like naming things so I'm going to call this the 90 Day Trinity Challenge. This challenge involves you intentionally improving your Body, Mind and Spirit for the next 90 days by working towards goals that are attainable, realistic and measurable.
Here is how it works:
1. Pick a body goal. For example, "Walk for 20 minutes a day" or "Get 8 hours of sleep" or "Drink 6 cups of water a day".
2. Pick a mind goal. For example, "Read a new book each month" or "Practice a new language 10 minutes a day" or "Go to a counselor once a month" Anything that improves your mind or mental state.
3. Pick a spirit goal. For example, "Try a new Bible plan" or "Incorporate a prayer time each morning" or "Limit complaining to once a day".
After you pick your goals, choose which goals you want to focus on first. For example, you may want to start with your mind goals for the first 30 days, then add on your spirit goal for the next 30 and end with your body goals for the last 30 days. If you are eager, like me, you can do all three goals for all 90 days.
Here are my goals:
Body-Limit fast food to $25 a month. This is going to be hard!! I am always on the go and fast food is generally convenient. I'm ready to challenge myself to plan my days better so that I don't resort to fast food. My waistline and wallet will be so happy :)
Mind-Read one book a month. I have been eyeing Michelle Obama's new book and I also want to re-read some of my graduate school books to keep my mind sharp with biblical/theological insights.
Spirit-Tear down toxic thoughts that are affecting my spiritual life. To do this I will be using Dr. Caroline Leaf's Brain Detox for the next 90 days. This is technically a mind challenge but since the mind and spirit are interconnected it works. The brain detox helps you to find truth in God's word to eliminate the toxic lies.
