Witchy Wellness part 4

Blessings Darlings!

Welcome to day four of trashing that '31 days of witchy wellness' meme!  And ... having gotten into the FB group for the person this comes from - she seems to want folks to purify daily.  Which fits into why she has zero shielding or warding on her list.  TOTALLY not my approach.  I prevent, rather than say 'get sick, then heal'.  Because fuck THAT.

Today we'll start with two different line items, "Morning Routine" and "Evening Routine".  I am ALL FOR routines.  The less decisions you have to make each day, the better for most folks.  Especially those of us with executive dysfunction. BUT ...

This is another case of 'dividing this into 31 days is stupid'.  The only two things she's had you do is 'Commit to doing' and 'purify'.  Are you doing that stuff daily?  I mean, I suppose she could have you doing it daily.  Is she now saying 'do them every morning'?  If so - why wait till day 3 to say that, and why give it a full day when you have at most 2 line items?

#4 on the list is 'Hydrate'.   Probably a fine idea.  Not a witchy idea at all, mind you.  I'm kinda experienced at starting and stopping this one.  It's not a 1 day thing.  It's a lot of work to get in the habit of drinking .  It will take between 3 and 6 weeks to get this one down to a habit.  Even if part of your morning routine is to chug a pint or two of water upon depending on your job ... both extra trips and extra time away from your 'work' might be issues.  

#5 is "Sacred Space".  I'll have to make some guesses about what she means here.   Maybe it's create a permanent area in your house for you to do your magic/meditate/ etc in.  Maybe it's making your whole house a sacred space.  Maybe it's declaring yourself/you body as sacred. I have no idea.  Hell, I don't even know what she means by 'sacred'.  But the dictionary definition of sacred - 'holy' - isn't necessarily a part of witchcraft.  Witchcraft is a skill set, just like knitting, which can be done by folks of any, all, or NO religion.  Whatever.

Are you supposed to do 'sacred space' once, or daily?  No clue.  I mean - I assume that your morning/evening routines are supposed to be daily - is everything on this list daily?  Unless you are creating AND destroying sacred space every day, you don't need to do it daily.  Why would you have to?  I suppose it COULD be 'see everything you run into as sacred' ... but 'mindfulness' is a different day, so that seems unlikely.

That's it for now.

Frondly, Fern
