Covid, Two Books, Netflix & an App
Feb 08, 2021
Oh, Happy Valentine’s Day! You are such a sweetheart for showing me some love and opening my email. Thanks! How are you celebrating Valentines? Even though this holiday is a completely made-up commercial sales event, made up by the greeting card industry, it still is a beautiful holiday. Where else can you celebrate LOVE? Tell everyone how much you love them, especially in these times. Here are five things that I have been thinking about:
- Update on COVID-19 vaccination: I have not had mine yet. I’ll let you know when vaccinewatch.com (not a real website) is in full swing. Here is the real website: CDC Covid Vaccine.
- I’m currently reading the book - Every Body Matters: Strengthening Your Body to Strengthen Your Soul by Gary Thomas. It’s a fascinating read and has a completely different way of looking at “the body.” This is a Christian book, so if that isn’t your thing, then consider yourself advised.
- And speaking of spiritual things, we have been watching Lucifer on the Netflix. This show goes on the premise that Lucifer (i.e. the Devil) took a vacation from hell and goes to Los Angeles. There is so much wrong with this I had to watch. I have a hard time focussing on one thing at a time, and each episode in the series is only 45 minutes, so I challenge myself to not pick up any devices during that time. There is the phrase, “seek first to understand, then to be understood.” I’m trying to wrap my mind around understanding who had the wherewithal to put this in a series. It’s really a guilty pleasure.
- As I’m becoming more of a “habit” person, I have always had a “morning routine”. I've added being dressed “down to my shoes” before going into the kitchen and before enjoying my coffee. This habit builds upon “protecting my morning.” If you would like to discover more about habits, I can highly recommend the book “Automic Habits.”
- Forming a new habit can be daunting, but also a little difficult. How is that “gym habit?” Don’t give up on movement because any is good for you. 1% more than the following week will actually make your brain thrilled. If you are new to exercise, start by walking. I use the app, Verve to walk and hold myself accountable.
Until next time, remember -
