EyesByErica Mind, Body and Soul
Your mental wellness is key to surviving any proverbial life’s curve ball or obstacle that you may encounter. I know for me, it’s critical that I take time out for my mental health. Some of the ways that I focus on clearing my mind include reading a daily devotional every morning before I interact with people.
I love the Bible App and finding devotionals that correlates with a situation that I’m experiencing in my life. I am also in a Sisters in Christ Life Group with about 13 God-fearing women that keep me lifted in prayer and support, when life gets tough. It’s so important to surround yourself with people that have your best interest at heart.
Mediation and continual prayer, has also helped me mentally during these difficult, trying times. I utilize several mediation apps such as Calm, Headspace, Insight Timer, and of course YouTube for guided meditation and mental clarity. I recommend reading Philippians 4:6(NIV) “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” when you are feeling anxious, stressed or mentally exhausted.
January 8, 2020, I went to my Primary Care Physician for my annual wellness exam and weighted in at 203 lbs. As of October 12, 2020; I’m down 35 lbs! This year, I have decided to recommit my life to better living in my Mind, Body and Soul. On July 13th, I made the best decision of my life and I employed personal trainer, Aaron Ennis @dev88fitness to help me get my body back on track toward living a more healthy, fulfilled life.
