Use these questions to evaluate your day:
- What were the seeds that started to affect your moderation today?
- Is there an area where you struggle with moderation (clothing, technology, learning, trinkets, food, alcohol, etc..)? Do you have a plan to curb your habits?
- Think of how you used the resources around you. Did you squander them, or were you excessive in their use?
- If you were on the verge of being excessive, what did you employ that helped you curb this behavior?
- Were you able to use prayer or meditation to help in your struggle with moderation?
- What do you struggle to practice in moderation? Food, drink, study, work? Discuss…
- Do you have a tendency towards asceticism (self-denial)?
