Growth and Spiritual Well-Being T hese last few issues, I’ve been discussing aspects of my driving force, or the things I do to keep myself media. When I build my relationship with God and with my family and friends, I’m able to keep a perspective on what’s really important in those moments when work or life feels overwhelming. What Makes Up My Driving Force: Part III

Now, I’m not claiming I focus on my physical, mental, and spiritual health every moment of every day. We all get swept up in a busy day of work or school or taking care of the kids. But by dedicating just a small part of my day to strengthening these areas of my health, I feel far more grounded for the rest of the day than I would otherwise. This is why my morning routine is so important to me. I may have to be up before 5:30 a.m., but I have plenty of time to exercise, study my devotionals, and do a little journaling before I need to be on my way to work. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tempted to hit the snooze button some mornings, but I know how rushed my day will feel otherwise. What’s more, focusing on my health in the morning means I’m not trying to fit in each thing during the rest of my day. I have the ability to focus on each area fully, and my overall health and lifestyle has improved greatly as a result. Now, I’ve covered my personal habits a lot during the last three months. It would be interesting to hear what my patients think. How do these areas play a role in your life, how do you strengthen them, and what do you believe is your own driving force?

focused and motivated each day. My life is made up of many parts, but I found they all revolve around three key components: my physical, mental, and spiritual health.

I know that by having faith in God and a higher power, I feel better about my place in life. My family attends church together, but for me it’s important to establish that connection with God each day. I have mentioned my morning routine a few times in these last few issues, because the mornings are the part of the day when I have the time to focus on my driving force. Part of my morning routine involves reading the Bible, usually using the YouVersion app, or looking over a daily devotional calendar. I spend 10–15 minutes in quiet contemplation, reflecting on whatever devotional or verse I’ve read and identifying how it aligns with my life. Sometimes, if a devotional resonates with me, I’ll write it down in my journal or copy it on a note to my wife and kids so they can read it when they wake up later. This is a very simple habit, but it’s proven to be a true benefit to my spiritual well-being. My spiritual health may be the last part of my driving force I’m discussing in this series, but it’s in no way the least important. Each component — physical, mental, and spiritual — goes hand in hand, feeding into each other to help me become a more well-rounded person.

My spiritual health is what keeps me grounded. It’s easy to start focusing on worldly

possessions or feel down because your life isn’t as “perfect” as the life another person posts about on social
