Wellness isn’t just one exercise, nutrition plan or good night’s sleep. Wellness is a philosophy brought to life every time you do something good for yourself or others. Read below to discover a week’s worth of wellness approaches to build your mind, body and spirit in health. Try one each day!
1. Make Time to Meditate
Meditation is a great for physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing – 15 minutes a day can lower blood pressure and elevate mood.
2. Move Your Muscles
Yoga, tai chi, and swimming and other physical outlets help the body as well as the spirit in reconnecting with your surroundings.
3. Rejuvenate the Self
Sleep and relaxation are essential for physical health and fighting off infections, and bodily rest helps calm and strengthen cognitive powers.
4. Engage with Others
Surround yourself with supportive people who will help you see the good in the world. Meditation groups might be a good start.
5. Nourish the Body
Build consciousness of all that you eat and drink, keeping an emphasis on natural foods that boost energy and support your immune system.
6. Practice Love
Live in every moment with a spirit of compassion and service. Place your focus away from the self and onto others to discover spiritual peace in every day.
7. Return to Nature
Get outside as often as you can, taking in as much sunlight and fresh air as possible.
If you can do one of these activities every day, you may be surprised at how good you feel at the end of one week!
