Today I am sharing this cute little tip that has helped me stay focused and motivated in every aspect of my life. My mother shared it with me years ago and I have kept it with me, but never really used it consistently until recently.
You basically have 5 parts to your essence: Spiritual, Physical, Intellectual, Social, and Emotional…aka SPISE! After you have discovered these 5 things, it’s time to think and plan how you can develop each one.
Here are some examples:
Spiritual: Pray or read your scriptures more consistently. Do it as a family. If you are doing it a few times a week, do it every day. If you are doing it every day, put more heart and soul into it. Put aside time each day to just be quiet and listen.
Physical: Exercise! Maybe you already are. Push yourself harder. Make goals and work toward them. Eat better. How long has it been since you’ve had a physical? Get your flu shot. Get out and play with your kids.
Intellectual: Read a book. Take a class or finish earning that degree. Stay updated on current events. Learn a new skill.
Social: Take treats to the new neighbor. Visit a family member or friend. Write a letter to someone you love. Smile!
Emotional: Meditate. Think about how you are treating others and even yourself. It all stems from your emotions. React with patience and love in all of your relationships.
Obviously this is such a personal thing which means there are a million different examples out there. Only you know where you can improve in these areas. Hopefully this little tip will help you like it has me. I have included a FREE printable if you want to stick these in your planner, on your mirror, or use as a bookmark! Just click the image to download.
I use my checklist each week to write down what I hope to accomplish in each area. I would love to know how this little tip has worked for you! Good luck!
