Wellness Wednesday: Tracking
Tracking. We are always tracking. Our social media accounts track our posts, our work tracks our performance and our cars track their milage.
Tracking is a way we keep tabs on what we need to know.
And what is it that we so easily loose track of?
Spending. The dollars in our pockets.
Diet. The food on our plates.
Keeping track of our finances is a great way to begin to respect the money that has blessed and is filtering through us. We need to and should be good stewards of the funds we find ourselves with. So often it can be easy to let it slip through our fingers without a second thought.
So many pro tips on staying healthy attest to a food log and or calorie counter giving insight to a diet. We go through out our days fuelling our bodies but rarely taking the moment to truly consider everything and the 'weight' of what it is we are putting inside it.
What happens when we take the time to record our spending? What happens when we write down everything we are eating?
Insight, awareness and empowerment.
Tracking what we so easily can loose control of empowers us to make decisions based off of knowledge instead of ignorance.
What do you need to start tracking? Is there something in your life that is out of control?
