Daily Mind Body Spirit Practice

mindbodyspiritI am working from home now and just as busy as I was when I was a very busy Dean of Nursing. Staying organized is a challenge because the day seems to get away from me pretty quickly. I know there are some things I need to do for myself every day so I can create balance and take care of myself. Things like exercise, housework (yep), hygiene (I did not take a shower yesterday – yuk!), learning, and taking time for regular spiritual practice. Well, I  found a way to combine some mind-body-spirit “musts.” I ride on my stationary bike for at least 30 minutes per day. I used to catch up on some favorite TV shows, but I have moved the bike to another room with no TV. So now I use my Kindle Fire while I am riding. I read scriptures (spirit) for 15 minutes then I watch a TED Talk (mind) for 15 or more minutes, all while exercising (body). So I am killing three birds with one stone, so to speak, and I feel good about it. The added bonus is that moving while studying actually increases retention, so I remember what I read or watched better because I am biking. Now, I am not a proponent of multitasking. I understand that focusing on one thing at a time is best, but it is nice to get certain daily “musts” out of the way, and it gives me a real sense of accomplishment and a nice start to the day, which manages my stress. And I am caring for my mind, body, and spirit. Life is great.

  1. Stress is everywhere but stress is more common in workplace as our movement is restricted, though there are some benefits if we work at home, we own our time but we should still prioritize the deadline and never disregard it. Being healthy and happy is our own decision, we decide on what things that could make us a better person.
