Healthy Living (Belated) Weekly Post: Gratitude & Journaling

This week's Wellness Journey topic was all about journaling and gratitude as a part of total wellness. I actually started a Gratitude Journal during last year's workshop where I listed five things I was grateful for each day. As this new year began, I changed the format in my journal and am now writing two sentences each day - the first is a thank you and the second is a prayer for today.

I did not reach my goal of five days of exercise this week, riding the stationary bike for 30 minutes; however, I did complete three sessions (and technically I still have today which may increase that number to four). Yesterday I had a terrible migraine and ended up in bed for the afternoon and evening. I'm not sure if it was brought on by sinus pressure from all the temperature and weather changes we've had this week or the fact that I spent the entire morning working on and filing our income taxes! I feel great this morning and am looking forward to a fun Saturday of scrappin' and enjoying the beautiful sunshine.

I'm sending you a lot of sympathy Melissa - migraine and sinus problems trouble me too and it can be pretty miserable some days. I hope you are feeling a lot brighter very soon x
