|Wellness is key this season, more than ever!|
And it’s not just about wearing a mask or staying away from people.
Wellness starts with mindset, and conscious choices.
It’s about feeding the mind, body and spirit with good. Good foods, good thoughts, good nurturing self care.
It’s about keeping your passions alive and maybe exploring some new ones now, since many of us are home more.
7 Tips for self care
1-Get outside. Try to never spend an entire day indoors unless you really must. A 15 minute brisk walk, hanging out in the yard for a fall clean up or even just sitting in the sun is invigorating, grounding and a great way to get off those electronics. If you can get out for longer, there’s nothing like a 1 or 2 hike to lower stress and feel better.
2-Take time to play. With your kids or however you can find a way to play something fun and light- be it a card game, a game of flashlight tag, a bounce on the trampoline or a board game. Lightheartedness and laughter are good for the spirit!
3-Give your body some extra “hydro therapy”
A long soak in the tub or your feet in a foot tub can do wonders for the body and relaxing. Then drench with a good body or foot cream and you’ll be feeling relaxed and recharged, nourished and nurtured!
4-Stay off social media
This is hard right? We are addicted. But we all have to take time to schedule in offline time. Just as mentioned above, those things( being outside, playing and being in the water) should all be sans phone or laptop. I know after a long walk without my phone, I am so grounded and WAY LESS STRESSED!
5- Try flower remedies for emotions
Flower remedies are not essential oils. They don’t work on the body or have a scent. What they do help, is our emotions. Like energy healing or vibrational healing, each essence or blend works for particular issues. My brand of choice is Freedom Flowers and I am partial to “JOY” and “TOMORROW” blends right now, during this pandemic to help set my mind to a more positive outlook. But there are essences for just about every issue! Take the quiz on the site or browse around here
6-Sleep more, Sleep better
Getting a good night’s sleep is so important for mind, body and spirit. you know how grumpy we get when we didn’t sleep well. Plus we can get run down and catch colds and viruses easier. Too often we are up late, up early and on our devices too often ( guilty). Taking some extra time to pamper and make your bedroom a haven for sleep is great. Darken the room, put on a fan or whatever you prefer, scent with lavender or ylang ylang or a nighttime blend. Try to hit the sack 15 minutes earlier each night for a week. That’s almost 2 hours more of sleep!
7- Eat right, eat less.
We’ve all heard the motto “Just eat real food”. It’s a simple reminder to reach for healthy foods, REAL foods, like fruits and veggies more often. Cut the processed foods as much as you can, save the treats for holidays and special occasions where you don’t want to feel deprived. I never skip dessert on special days! Being home more nowadays gives us a good reason to experiment with more homemade foods like hearty soups, seasonal vegetables and home-cooked meals.
