So, the question is... "What have you done today (or yesterday, or in the last week) to support your sense of well-being?"
We can easily jump to "I brushed my teeth and that's good for me" and perhaps get some well-being credit. But, better to think about the things that we do in an intentional and purposeful way because we've thought about it and made the choice that says, "Yes, I believe doing this will enhance my well being!" Might be physical well-being, social, spiritual, mental... you get the idea!
Things I've heard lately...
...Took a walk in an area that wasn't familiar to me.
...Started teaching myself guitar using online videos.
...Made a ski weekend happen with a college buddy.
...Had an intentional conversation with my wife about something more than "the schedule."
...Read a book for pleasure.
...Made three crock pot dinners that I've never made before.
