Self Care & Journaling: : We’ll get specific about rest and wellness activities with a focus on the whole self. This requires a commitment to dedicate one hour each week to your overall well-being that may include a massage, a walk in the park, or a trip to an art museum. Journaling includes your Daily reflection with intention and purpose. Grab a pen and a journal and get ready to put all the pieces together by writing it down, getting it out, and moving on.  James & Joyce Atherton
