Habits & Lifestyles: August 2019, Journal Prompt Questions

One habit at a time!

It has been a lifetime since I have created a blog entry. Writing blogs aren’t my favorite. However, blogs have relevance and a place in our society.

On January 1, 2018, I committed to creating the habit of journaling each morning. The platform I used to share my love for journaling  is Habits & Lifestyles: closed Facebook group (Healthier Habit Supporters). I record myself journaling each morning for approximately 3-minutes. If you are interested, previous videos can be found on YouTube and Pinterest.

Low and behold, I have been successful with creating a daily journaling habit.

As we embark on a new year, I want to commit to writing 1-blog entry per month. Nothing fancy!

At the very least, I can create a place for people to access our journal prompt questions.


Each month habits and lifestyles focuses on one of our 7-lifestyle areas. Our 7-lifestyle areas are listed below.

  1. Faith
  2. Physical
  3. Nutrition
  4. Finances
  5. Relationships
  6. Travel
  7. Pleasure (balance)

 


This month (August 2019), we are focusing on Physical!

Below are a list of our journal prompt questions.

 

    1. What does physical health mean to you?
    2. Why is exercise so important?
    3. Where do you prefer to exercise? Indoors, outdoors, mountain, pool, court?
    4. In what ways can you include your family into your exercise routine?
    5. After I exercise, I feel…

Collaboration Because…Why Not?

I must admit when I started supporting people as a Professional Accountability Partner in January, I wasn’t 100% sure of how the program would look. I knew two things. One, I’d used Habits & Lifestyles 6-effective steps to Create The Life I wanted over the past 4-years. Two, I knew I wanted to work with other women; game changers.

Six or so years ago I started listening to a Pastor by the name of Keith Battle of Zion Church. I started watching his YouTube videos and then I started listening to his services online. While on Zion’s website, I noticed they had small online groups. I tried to join one, but apparently it wasn’t the right time. Later that year I tried to join another group and the rest is history.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________

While in this online group I met an amazing group of women who supported, encouraged, and loved each other. Of course, the next step was to visit the church (located in Maryland) and meet the women in person. While in Maryland I had the opportunity to meet Diamond McBride. She was the  guest speaker at our women’s retreat.

I enjoyed listening to her story, her love for life and goal setting. She’d climbed the corporate ladder through hard work.  Listening to her speak gave me a sneak peek inside her heart. She was passionate about her work. After she finished speaking to us, she gave us gifts; sticky notes, mugs, pens, paper clips, etc. I was inspired. At the time I was in the process of getting Habits & Lifestyles off the ground and office supplies were always welcomed. Before she left, we connected on Facebook and said our “good-bye for now.”

I flew back to Arizona and continue with life. However, now that we were Facebook friends, I was able to follow Diamond’s professional and personal accomplishments.

Fast forward to the end of 2018.  I had received several encouraging words from friends and other women I coached in the past. I told myself I would start supporting women again on January 28, 2019. I have valuable information I want to share with the world. Nevertheless, I knew other women were full of knowledge that needed to be shared as well. I remembered the woman I met in Maryland. I reached out to Diamond and asked her if she’d be interested in facilitating a session in Habits & Lifestyles: 56-Day Jump Start Program. I’d asked her to focus on Step 2: Create the healthier habit:

Diamond’s business aligns perfectly with Habits & Lifestyles. Her curriculum covers the importance of schedules and routines. I was so impressed while listening to her speak, that I had to stop and take notes for myself. While facilitating she addressed issues my clients faced (I didn’t tell her). Diamond is called to help others and share her knowledge.

We had the pleasure to include Diamond in our first online session. It’s an honor to add her to the program as a permanent facilitator.

New online session starting Monday, June 10, 2019 at 6:00 pm- 7:00 pm (MST).
