Setting Your Baseline: How Are Your FISHES?

A+ A-
FISHES is an acronym that represents a balanced life. On a scale from 1 to 10, Rank how happy you are in the following categories:

Family - Do you have peace in your home? Do each of your family members show others love and respect? Do you harbor any bitterness or unforgiveness against anyone in your family?

Intellectual - Is there anything that you'd like to learn? How many languages do you speak? How many do you want to speak? Do you feel challenged mentally?

Social - Do you have as many friends as you would like? Do you have close friends that you can count on? Do you contribute to your community in a fulfilling way?

Health / Fitness - Have you had a physical within the last two years? Are you happy with your appearance? Do you have enough energy to do everything that you want to do?

Economic - Are you saving and investing money on a regular basis? Are you better off financially than you were a few years ago? How do you feel about your financial future?

Spiritual - Do you have a strong, personal relationship with God? Do you spend time every day in prayer? Would you like to spend more? Are you connected to a church that is alive and growing with a strong foundation built on the Bible?

The categories will be the same but your questions may be different. The point of this exercise is to assess where you are as contrasted with where you want to be in every area of your life.

Today, spend 15-30 minutes meditating on each of these areas. If you sense that one area consumes more of your thoughts, that is probably the area that you need to balance the most.
