As we close out 2016 I want to say “ Thank You “to all my friends, family, readers and listeners to The Humble Warrior Podcast. The last year writing 52 blogs, once a week has helped me in my spiritual growth and I’m forever grateful to share my thoughts, insights and philosophy with you.
Mentioned several times on the HWP and in my blogs the Spiritual Fitness way have of life has been developed over the last twenty-five years. Spirituality, God, fitness, health, wellness are my passions. Like you we all go through obstacles in life and its how we respond to these obstacles that help us grow. In my life I had to get knocked down more than once in order to truly bring this lifestyle to fruition. Having this in place has helped me be the BEST person I can be and is a daily practice which I continue to improve myself – BEST Self.
We are winding down 2016 and this is a time for New Year resolutions. My podcast partner Jon and I talked about this last year how resolutions are set up for us to fail. This type of thinking is developing something short-term for immediate gratification. Now failure is OK as long as we are growing. Living a Purposeful Life using the daily Spiritual Fitness tools is a way of life. It’s a lifetime practice that is developed in small daily increments to produce lifetime benefits for the Body, Mind and Spirit. Ultimate Health.
If you’re reading this blog this is purposeful for you. This is a hidden secret how God/Universe works. This is meant for you right now! Please consider implementing the Spiritually Fit lifestyle going into 2017. The Spiritual Fitness Lifestyle is on my website under the Spiritual Fitness Tab. Here are simple steps to get started. I like to call this Simplifying Spirituality.
The seven daily practices are prayer, nutrition, yoga/fitness/exercise, reading, writing, mantras & affirmations and meditation.
An easy and simple way to get started On Jan 1, 2017 is by implementing these five steps per week.
Week 1: Prayer
Week 2: Reading
Week 3: Writing
Week 4: Mantras & Affirmations
Week 5: Meditation Practice
My recommendation is Jan 1, 2017 to commit to exercise at least 20 minutes daily and incorporating eating a healthy lifestyle.
For the 5 steps start with 5 minutes per day and go from there. After five weeks your carving out 45 minutes per day working your Spiritually Fit Lifestyle.
This is a simple platform you can use to get you started. Feel free to switch it up, be creative. The main objective with this lifestyle is to be connected with our inner self and to develop a deeper relationship with God/Universe/Higher Power. Whatever works for you.
We live in a busy and noisy world. However these are tools we can use to tap into our own inner personal power and control this world instead the world controlling us.
Many blessings on the journey ahead. You have all the power within. Make this the year you become Spiritually Fit!
Through this practice I’ve learned to be grateful daily and to give from the heart. I’m gifting away ten free 30-minute consultations in helping you develop a daily spiritual fitness practice. The fist ten people that email me at [email protected] will receive this gift.
Many blessings on your journey.
