For this segment of her series, Everyday (starting Tonight) I'm going to be Keeping a Health Journal on Livejournal. To Get to Confessions of a Teenage Witch Click here

I will post Over there, a regular diary of my health, things I'm doing differently, how much exercise I get, what I eat and how much of it. Improving our health is not only a practical thing but also a Magickal one as well. I have found, that in many cases when someone comes to me and asks for healing that their answer is not in any spells I have or any of my remedies; But in improving their individual health. And THAT is Truly Magickal.

A Healthy Body, Is a Healthy Mind and Spirit. As Witches, I feel that we are obligated to take care of ourselves just as much as we take care of others.

If I could implement one of those routines in my life, I'd be healthier I know. I'm such a perfectionist that if I don't do everything perfectly, nothing gets done. Have you ever been to the site, "Lifehacker"? Definitely not a wiccan/pagan site, but full of really great ideas about organization and productivity. Sigh, we can only do the best we can. P.S. It's nice to meet another changeling and sounds like your granny was a wise woman herself.

Haahaa! True. I'm some what of a perfectionist too, although I'm far more a procrastinator. I'd rather dance or sing than do any real work! ;) And I will deff have to check out Lifehacker. And, do you mean my Granda? He's the one who named me Fae. I didn't mention my Gran, but she is pretty wise in and of herself. It's is nice to meet you as well!

Blessings.
Fae
