In my introductory post for 31 Days to a Healthier Lifestyle I shared seven categories to address throughout the month. They were Work, Leisure, Rest, Fresh Air, Mental and Spiritual Well-being and Exercise. This theme was a big undertaking for me, and I only scratched the surface of most of the topics.

Now that my 31 Day series has come to a close, am I any closer to my goal of a healthier lifestyle?
I definitely made progress, but must continue to move forward. It takes a little longer than 31 days to establish a firm habit. This past week I reviewed six of the seven categories individually. The only one left is:
Mental and Spiritual Well-being.

When we are in a different environment as on vacation, I tend to drop the habit a bit. I still try to include Scripture and prayer in my day, but the timing is irregular.
Each day I do some type of thinking game on my phone or computer. I don’t usually spend much time on it. Also, I’m reading more of a variety of books. I’m currently working on the books in the photo below, though I have others I still need to finished.
Working on this series has been a fun and sometimes frustrating journey. One thing I gained is more discipline in my writing. This is the first year I completed all 31 posts of the #write31days challenge. That is a good feeling!
My heart is touched by you friends who have encouraged me by commenting and cheering me on. I realized that this #write31days is also a ministry in a way. [bctt tweet=”It occurred to me that ministering to others is also a part of a healthy lifestyle. ”

May God enable each of us to encourage and minister to others as we go about our daily routines.
