This week, I attended a workshop based on the book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. The last habit is "Sharpen the Saw" which involved preserving and enhancing the greatest asset you have--you. It means having a balanced program for self-renewal in the four areas of your life: physical, social/emotional, mental, and spiritual. Here are some examples:
PHYSICAL: Beneficial eating, exercising, and resting
SOCIAL/EMOTIONAL: Making social and meaningful connections with others
MENTAL: Learning, reading, writing, and teaching
SPIRITUAL: Sending time in nature, expanding spiritual self through meditation, music, art, prayer, or service
Go ahead and sharpen your own saw!
