3 Ideas, 2 Quotes, and 1 Question to help you reflect on your work-life wellness and balance habits this week.


3 Ideas from Me


“There is no dress rehearsal in the journey of life.

We are live and on stage each and every day while our spouse, children, co-workers, and community watch our show.”



“I choose and practice waking up each morning with three minutes of gratitude, three minutes of prayer, and thinking about the three most important things I want to accomplish each day.

My morning routine continues with listening to a 30-minute inspirational podcast while exercising. Positive emotions flow from this routine and fill my enthusiasm tank up for the day. Everyone benefits.”



“We often tell ourselves that we don’t have time for gratitude, reflection, prayer, or exercise, and in no time, we believe these dominant thoughts.

“Fortunately, we can find the time by asking ourselves this little question…Would I find the time if someone paid me $10,000 each day to create a positive and healthy morning routine?”
