  • Living With the Whole Life Challenge

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Feb 2, 2021

    During the times I spend doing the Whole Life Challenge (WLC), there’s a new Well Being Practice (WBP - you’d almost think it’s a gov’t program with all these acronyms) each week. This current challenge started with making a “Do Not Do” list of three items you regularly do daily that you could reasonably skip doing. Those could be extended to not do all week, or you could list three new items each day. The second week was spend ten minutes each day in meditation. Definitely not my favorite practice. This week we are “declutteri...
