he pursuit of holistic wellness, adding reading and scribing into one’s routine can have profound effects on physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.
This blog post, part of the SAVERS series, aims to guide Catholic women on optimizing their wellness through the powerful combination of reading and scribing.
The SAVERS framework, popularized by the Miracle Morning book by Hal Elrod, stands for Silence, Affirmations, Visualization, Exercise, Reading, and Scribing.
The final two components, Reading and Scribing, bring a unique opportunity to deepen our connection with faith and self. In this blog post, we explore how incorporating these practices into the SAVERS framework can contribute to a more meaningful and spiritually enriched life.
Reading: Nourishing the Soul with Sacred Texts
Reading is a powerful medium for gaining knowledge, insight, and inspiration. For Catholic women seeking wellness, incorporate sacred texts, such as the Bible, into your daily routine.
Choose passages that resonate with your spirit and offer guidance for your journey. Allow the wisdom of saints and spiritual leaders to shape your mindset and illuminate your path towards holistic well-being.
Suggestions for Reading:
– Daily scripture readings
– Meditations on the lives of saints
– Inspirational books by Catholic authors
Scribing: Journaling for Spiritual Growth and Self-Discovery
Scribing, or journaling, is a reflective practice that allows you to document your thoughts, prayers, and experiences.
This is an opportunity to deepen your spiritual connection and foster self-discovery. Create a sacred space for scribing where you can pour out your heart to God, express gratitude, and articulate your aspirations for wellness.
Ideas for Scribing:
– Gratitude journaling
– Prayer reflections
– Personal affirmations rooted in faith
Integrating Reading and Scribing for Wellness:
1. Morning Scripture Reflections: Begin your day by reading a scripture passage that resonates with you. Journal about the insights gained and how you can apply them to your daily life.
2. Evening Examen: Before bedtime, engage in the Ignatian Examen, a reflective prayer practice. Read scripture, journal about your day, and express gratitude for moments of grace.
3. Spiritual Book Club: Form a community of like-minded women to read and discuss spiritual books. Share insights, reflections, and support one another on your wellness journey.
4. Prayerful Journaling: Use your journaling time as a form of prayer. Write letters to God, pouring out your hopes, fears, and desires. Reflect on how your faith guides your path to wellness.
