COMMUNITY SUPPORT AND SO MUCH MORE!

Everyday, this community will help strengthen each other in spirit, mind, and body through encouragement, support, and accountability as we work each day to be better than the day before.

Week 1: RESET

“Have you tried turning it off and turning it back on?” The easiest answer to every tech glitch, right? And, after the eye-roll, and the flip of a switch, it sometimes strangely works!

 

But what happens when you glitch? When your body’s hardware is burdened, slow, and endlessly spinning? When your mind, body, and soul are stuck in strange patterns; patterns that are unhealthy and glitchy?

 

RESET will help you fix your glitches. It will give you tools to power you ‘off’ and turn you back on to help restore and reset your hardware.

 

Hit the RESET button on your life; start over, and discover your God-given potential again!

WEEK 2: REFRESH

Maybe your kitchen has turned into the food-court at the county fairgrounds? Deep-fried treat in one booth, sugary drink in the next, and top it off with a processed piece of something at the last stop?

Maybe your car has become the 5-star dining experience from another dimension? Where dim lights and cloth napkins are replaced with ordering meals by illuminated numbers and delicately squeezing sauce packets on one knee while ripping off a straw wrapper with your pearly whites?

The fuel we put in our bodies is a choice, and, unlike at a real fuel pump, the options are many.

This week, we will REFRESH our lives; learning tools to manage the balance between stress, convenience, and healthy choices.

CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK

This week we will add to our fitness goals with one week of nutritious eating.

WEEK 3: RECONNECT

We’ve replaced our voice with our thumbs, our facial expressions with emojis, and our personal reactions are often reduced to a few ‘go-to’ pop-culture memes.

While the wide world of social media and connective technology continues to bring new blessings and possibilities to our lives, it also has frayed bonds and strained our human need for personal relationships.

This week, we will focus on finding new ways, and rediscovering old ways to RECONNECT with others.

WEEK 4: REPLAY

When’s the last time you did the hokey-pokey, used a jump rope, or sat ‘Criss-Cross-Applesauce’ on the ground and combed a doll’s hair?

When’s the last time you did a puzzle, shuffled a deck of cards, or played with Legos?

Your paint set is dusty, your crochet hook is lonely, your wood-working is idol… it’s time to PLAY.

When we intentionally choose to PLAY, we engage our inner-child… the gentle, fun-loving, easy-going self that is under all those layers of work, chores, screens, and…adulting!

It’s time to replay the best parts of our childhood, bring back old joys, and find new ones as well!
