Mental, Physical and Spiritual Well Being

I really meant to take pictures of our activity and I didn't even take one. I forgot. Sorry.

Some of the highlights were hearing about how physical exercise doesn't have to be regimented or boring. It can be as simple as cleaning your house with good music on. Or dancing like loons with your family in your living room.

Mentally we as Sisters need to take time for ourselves. Maybe just a few minutes where we do an activity that we love. Some of the Sisters mentioned that watching a movie at the end of the day was a great stress reliever.

 Spiritually we need to make our homes a haven. We need to let our homes be a place where we feel safe. A place we can practice our religion openly and frequently.

We had wonderful healthy snacks of apple slices, carrots, celery, cheese slices and a variety of dips.

Here's a recipe to one of the dips we enjoyed last night.

Apple Brickle Dip

1 8oz pkg cream cheese softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 pkg almond brickle chips or English toffee bits

(I used HEATH milk chocolate toffee bits)

Blend all ingredients in mixer until smooth..

We really enjoyed seeing the Sisters last night at our activity. We hope to see more next month at our activity on February 24th, 2011. We will be learning about Menu planning and Crockpot recipes.
