As the summer comes, many of us can already smell the cookouts, feel the sunshine on our faces, and hear the new summer hits on the radio. While indulging in the summer fun, do things to create a healthier you by participating in Summer of Wellness!
Each month of the summer will focus on wellness in one of three areas: mind, body, or spirit. You will also be challenged with a new way to improve your health through weekly challenges. In June, the challenges will focus on a healthy Spirit, in July the focus will shift to a healthy body, and in August, the focus will be on a healthy mind.
Get into healthy habits and send a picture to email@example.com of you tackling the challenges! By sending in your picture, you will automatically be entered into a raffle to win prizes. We can’t wait to see how you’ll work toward a healthier you!
Week 1: June 5-11
Find a new way to connect with your Creator
Try new outlets of reaching God. Find beauty in nature, have a heart-to-heart with God, or share your faith with a friend. Whatever you do, know that God wants a relationship with you, so reach out to Him in as many ways as possible. Send us a picture of how you tried something new!
“Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has a purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from.” -Elizabeth Kübler-Ross
Week 2: June 12-18
Engage in Week of Renewal
Be intentional about engaging in the Week of Renewal. To pick up your booklet, stop by a kiosk around the network or pick one up at your town hall meeting. Don’t forget to send us a picture!
“Dear friend, I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit.” -3 John 1:2
Week 3: June 19-25
Random acts of kindness
Go out of your way to make someone’s day a little easier, or make a small gesture that could have a big impact. Write someone a letter, bring them coffee in the morning, or sit and talk with someone who is alone. Send us a picture of what you did and write in the description how it helped you grow spiritually.
“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the greatest intention.” – Kahlil Gibran
Week 4: June 26-July 2
Help the community
We are spiritually nourished when we serve. If you feel blessed by helping out in the church, at one of the hospitals, or at a local non-profit such as Good Neighbor House, carve out some extra time in your schedule to serve. Send us a picture of you volunteering your time and gifts!
“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” -Mother Teresa
