Why Growers Need to Develop Habits In Your Purposeful Journey

Spiritual Time

Adding a daily practice of spiritual time can be a wonderful way for women to connect with themselves and their higher power. Whether it's a few moments of quiet reflection, a prayer or meditation, or reading inspiring texts, taking time each day to nourish your spiritual side can bring a sense of peace, grounding, and purpose to your life. It doesn't have to be a big commitment - even just a few minutes a day can make a difference. And remember, there's no right or wrong way to do it - just find what works for you and feels authentic to your beliefs and values. So why not give it a try? Your mind, body, and spirit will thank you.

Two great ways that I try to add this habit to my day is that I try to pray, study a scripture, or listen to my bible app when I am doing dishes. To help with the scripture reflection I try to write a new scripture on my kitchen window so it is in front of me whenever I step up to the sink.

The second way is to pray when I am doing quick daily tasks like washing my hands, picking up the living room, or making my bed. I do these tasks every day so I know getting a little time with the Lord is guaranteed.

I also mentioned a Bible App that I love in the podcast episode above here is the link for you.

Self Care

Making self-care a daily habit is not only important for our own well-being, but it also allows us to better care for our families. As women, we often take on multiple roles and responsibilities, which can leave us feeling overwhelmed and stressed. By taking time for ourselves each day, whether it's through exercise, healthy eating, or simply indulging in a hobby we enjoy, we can recharge our batteries and show up as our best selves for those we love. Remember, self-care is not selfish - it's necessary! Just as we prioritize the needs of our families, we must also prioritize our own physical, mental, and emotional health. So let's commit to making self-care a non-negotiable part of our daily routine. Our families will benefit from having a happy, healthy, and energized mom.

Write Everything Down

As women, we have a lot on our plates, and it's easy to feel overwhelmed and forgetful at times. One simple but effective habit to help keep us organized and focused is to write everything down. Whether it's a to-do list, a grocery list, or a journal entry, putting pen to paper can help us declutter our minds and reduce stress. It also helps us prioritize tasks and goals, as well as track progress and accomplishments. Plus, writing can be a creative and therapeutic outlet, allowing us to express ourselves and reflect on our thoughts and feelings. So why not give it a try? Grab a notebook or journal and start jotting down your thoughts and tasks. You might be surprised at how much more productive and centered you feel.

Getting all of those open circles out of your head and into a safe place will give you peace of mind to be creative, imaginative, and energized on your growing journey!

Plan Everything

Planning is essential to success in any endeavor, yet many growers underestimate the importance of planning when it comes to achieving certain goals. It's a fact: women who plan have the edge when it comes to productivity, identity and control. The everyday juggle of work, family, and chores can get overwhelming. Studies show that those who take the time to plan ahead of time are more successful and organized, and this is especially true for women who need to multitask between job, home and family commitments.

I know that not all plans will work out as planned perfectly but with a plan you will know where to start each day. I tell my husband that the reason I plan everything, even things that will happen 5 years from now, is so that we will be ready to move at full speed when we are ready. The supplies list is already made for when we want to start a big project or better yet when I have an hour to dedicate to a task I already know where I stopped and where I need to start today.

Meal Planning

As growers, we often wear many hats - from caretaker to homemaker to community leader. With so much on our plates, it can be easy to let healthy eating fall by the wayside. One solution is to make meal planning a habit. By taking a bit of time each week to plan out meals and snacks, we can ensure that we and our families are eating well and staying nourished. This can also help us save time and money, as we're less likely to resort to fast food or takeout. Plus, meal planning can be a fun and creative activity, allowing us to try new recipes and flavors. So why not give it a try? Block off some time each week to plan out meals, make a grocery list, and prep ingredients. You'll feel more in control of your diet and more energized throughout the day.

You often take pride in being able to handle everything yourself, but the truth is that you can't do it all alone. Building the habit of delegating tasks is an important step towards reducing stress and achieving your goals. Delegation allows you to focus on your strengths and passions, while giving others the opportunity to learn and grow. It also fosters teamwork and collaboration, which can lead to better outcomes and a more positive work and home environment for your family. Delegation doesn't have to mean giving up control - it's about trusting others and recognizing that we can accomplish more together. So why not give it a try? Start by identifying tasks that could be delegated to others from your plans you made above, whether it's out on the homestead or in your home. Your child will love to help you and it will prepare them for life in the real world too. Be sure to communicate clearly and respectfully, and provide support and feedback as needed. You'll be amazed at how much more you can accomplish when you're not trying to do it all alone.

I hope you have found these basic habits helpful in deciding if this purposeful life is right for you. Because face it you don’t have to have everything figured out to start, you are going to be able to build each of these habits as you start growing and moving forward with your purposeful life.

God has a plan for you and He has equipped you with all you need to create a peaceful, joyful, and purposeful home for your family.

And if you are ready to jump in feet first come join the Purposeful Growing Waiting List, and start learning how to build each of these habits using the Purposeful Growing Journey.

I know you can do this!

And Remember,

Don’t let the World hold you Back,

Pray, Just Plant
