What does wellness mean to you? We see wellness as a fluctuating thing that is in constant motion with the markers changing daily, rather than a final goal to achieve. It’s an interaction of body, mind and spirit – all need to be attended to equally to achieve good mental, physical and emotional health. Living life in the present moment rather than dwelling too much on the past or future can really help to achieve this. It’s all about outlook, seeing both the highs and lows, as opportunities for learning and growth.
What is your remedy for when you’re feeling overwhelmed and need to realign yourself? Pause, connect, breathe, then act! The simple act of pausing and scanning your body to notice where it feels good, what’s tense and what hurts can take you straight out of your mind into your body. This is such a simple yet powerful practice that can be applied minute by minute, hour by hour. We also have a long standing tradition in our family to take a dip whenever we are near a clean waterway, be that river, lake or sea. It’s an instant body and mind reset! Of course, Tea is also key.
