Week 5: Rest

Your STRONG Challenge continues with Week 5: REST! It's something we all need desperately to thrive but ignore its power. Why does REST always seem to get put on the backburner of our fast-paced lives? We all fall victim to not falling asleep at a regular time, ignoring quiet time with prayer and/or meditation, or not designating a rest or Sabbath (God’s way of saying REST!).

This week, we reclaim our health with power napping, sleeping in, quieting our minds, and resting.

Ready to join the challenge? Just text STRONG to 888-609-6223!

On Your Own

  • Pray or meditate. Unplug for at least 10 minutes. Do everything you can to lay still, rest your mind, and monitor your breathing. 

  • Take a 10-minute walk. Connect with yourself and meditate on thankfulness, forgiveness, and the STRONG Challenge.

  • Take a day, preferably Sunday, and DO NOTHING. Kid screen time is totally acceptable while you regroup your life for another week.

  • Unplug tech for 20 minutes and sit outside. Take in your surroundings.

  • Start a journal, or write in a journal you already have.
