Do These Five Things Every Day

December 10, 2021 · by Heidi Stewart

V. Read

Many people in our generation have missed out on the joys of reading. It’s truly one of the best things you can do for yourself; you get to see the world from others’ perspectives, and you can learn from their mistakes. Their successes show you what’s possible and their wisdom adds value to your life. Not all books are created equal, but it’s worth asking around and doing a little research to find a good one!

Also, mamas, reading to your babies has been proven to strengthen their cognitive and language development, promote bonding, and support their emotional and social development. Reading can make such a big difference for your children!

IV. Organize

This has less to do with finding the perfect planner with the cutest stickers and more about finding a way to keep your goals and errands organized for maximum efficiency. We all tend to take the path of least resistance, so to make life easier on yourself, make those errands organized & plan your day. For instance, set out things you need to take with you the night before in order to reduce the chances that you’ll go the path of least resistance and put it off.

III. Clean

It’s science: having a clean environment helps you focus when you are trying to accomplish your tasks for the day.

II. Write

Whether it be a journal, poem, or one sentence per day, it will help boost your creative juices. It will also give you valuable time to reflect on and apply the things you’re learning in your current season of life.

I. Pray

Even though this is obviously a number one priority in the life of any Christian, this precious time can sometimes be overlooked as life picks up. It is the key to personal growth, what keeps us when everything in our world is breaking down. This is the time to receive direction, hope, and peace from the King of Kings. There’s no personal growth substitute for time spent with our Father.
