Thank you so much for joining me in this 90 Days of Calm course. Welcome! I'm thrilled you've decided to come along on this three-month journey to discovering a life of inner-peace you may not have known could exist. I know that may sound like an exaggeration, but it's truly not.
Living a calmer life is possible. Today's world is more hectic by nature. Everything seems to be moving faster. However, the basic resources for creating serenity remain the same. Learning just a few tips and tools can help you gain control of the chaos that seems to constantly surround you.
That's not to say it will be easy. After all, you have a lot of obligations. There are tons of people, tasks, deadlines, and more clamoring for your attention. It can be tough to tune out all the distractions and to focus on one thing at a time. All of that extra noise really adds to your stress levels over time.
One of the biggest reasons for our stress is that there is disarray and discord throughout our lives, along with the pressing obligations weighing on our shoulders. It can all become too much to bear. During this challenge, I'll walk you through the various areas of your life and show you ways you can take charge of the never-ending pandemonium that seems to confront you on a daily basis.
During the next 90 days, we’re going to focus on things like: fear, shame, guilt, habits, clutter, media, and more. In addition to showing you the ways in which your life can be consumed by chaos, many of which you may never have suspected, I'll share with you concrete methods for addressing them. You'll discover tools for taking control of your life's disarray, no matter what the source. Journaling, meditation, morning routines, streamlining, organization, and other techniques are just the beginning of taking back your life and creating calm.
We’ll move deeper toward more internal “soul work” as the week’s progress. If you've read my books, some of this content is going to feel familiar. There are pieces of Catching Your Breath, Self-Care for the Wounded Soul, and From Pastor to a Psych Ward sprinkled throughout the lessons. The difference is, now you have a community to discuss these principles with in an intentional way. And we'll coach about them, too. In addition to the books, there is also plenty of fresh content, exclusive to this program.
While life can seem like a free-for-all sometimes, it truly doesn't have to. Understanding what leads to the chaos and learning simple strategies to deal with these sources can go far toward creating a calmer world, at least in your little corner of it. Join me for a journey that I feel confident will lead to great things for you. I'm happy and honored to have you along with me. Let's get started!
