Are you waking up and immediately looking at your phone or social media? If so, we have a different habit to suggest. Try starting your day in prayer, meditation, and devotional time. A few ideas:
Keep a gratitude journal on your kitchen table.
Enjoy a daily scripture verse or inspirational message. Devote thought and prayer to your goals in life. Beware of wasting time, watching viral videos.
Pray for guidance whenever a worry pops up in your day.
Use social media to encourage others to let go of worries and devote themselves to a higher purpose.
Build higher purpose into whatever you do. If you set a weight loss goal, for example, ask friends to donate money to a favorite hunger charity for every pound you lose. If you clean your home, celebrate that the things you purge can be donated to Good Will and recycled for good.
Pray throughout the day, thanking God for the blessing of a smile from a stranger or that of a warm meal in front of you. Build intentional spiritual exercise into your day, the same way you would physical exercise.
"Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
