How Do you cater to your mind, body, and soul daily?

When you look into the mirror, listen to the way people around you describe you, hear your own
thoughts or even see your actions do they reflect the individual you are. How do the things you
do every day reflect in your personal life? Do they have any effect at all? These are all questions
I asked myself as they repeatedly played in my mind during the time, I found myself first
growing as a person. It came down to me just wanting a better life for myself and I found that
through the trivial things like the first thing I do when I wake up, how I think throughout the day,
what type of music I play in the car, that would make such a difference in my perception and
lifestyle. Today this question brings me to a point of reflection in my current life. Below is my
journal guide of how I cater to my body, mind, and soul daily. I challenge all women who are
reading this right now to sit, think and write down how you cater to your mind, body, and soul
daily. Remember you will be spending the rest of yourself, so make sure you are taking care of
yourself like your life depends on it.

my weight. I have always wanted to work out and become better with my physical health, yet I

helped me not only feel better but look better and form a daily habit catering to my body and

Honestly everyday what makes my soul happiest is prayer and the words of God. Praying when I
first wake up and every night before I go to sleep is the only way I can start and end my day.
This caters to my soul, and it is something small that really changes my perception of life.
