Keep It Simple

After dinner, sit awhile; after supper walk a mile.

~ Old English Saying

Having simple orderliness in our lives will keep us in the here and now. We no longer have work schedules, agendas. or itineries to dictate minute to minute living, when we eat, or when we sleep. It would be easy to fall into a “who cares” attitude. The word G.O.D., I have heard stands for “good orderly direction”. Once we are forced into the land of disability or loss, it is important to reestablish a pattern, schedule, or agenda of our own making. We all need a system that works for ourselves. We need regular meal times, sleep, productivity, low impact & gentle exercise, time with the God of our own understanding, etc. each day.

Today’s Life Coach Action Plan: Just for today, I will set up a schedule that looks something like this  “I need to”  “I want to”  “I have to.”  Now, I will put 3 things under each title….doing one from each column. Now, that is a balanced day.

Note: Please comment below and let me know how this works for you.
