If you’re a religious person, you recognize the significance of this day; if not, here’s the Wikipedia entry.Â Read up; it’s good for you.
I know I’m not the most religious person, but my faith is actually pretty important to me; I do believe that there is a certain value in seeking out Truth, and I’m often comforted in times of stress by certain rituals. For Lent this year, I’ve decided I want to put my faith into practice and take on two disciplines:
1. I want to read the Bible daily. I plan to spend 15 minutes a day reading Scripture; I’ve neglected my spiritual side for far too long.
2. I want to spend at least 15 minutes a day in exercise. A healthy body leads to a healthy mind, and I’ve never been able to shake this excess weigt I’ve picked up over the last few years. If I can work out every day for 40 days, it can become a habit, and a good one at that.
