Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (for teens)

Keep Hope Alive! Kid, You’ll Move Mountains!

Habit 7 is all about keeping your personal self sharp so that you can better deal with life. It means regularly renewing and strengthening the four key dimensions of your life – Your Body – the physical dimension with exercise, eating healthy, sleeping well, and relaxing; Your Brain – the mental dimension by reading, educating, writing, and learning new skills; Your Heart – the emotional dimension, by building relationships (RBA, PBA), volunteering, and laughing, and Your Soul – the spiritual dimension, by meditation, keeping a journal, praying, and taking in quality media.

It’s very important to balance all 4 dimensions because each dimension will affect the other three.
