Happy Wellness Wednesday, Friends!
“Health is a state of body, wellness is a state of being.”
Wellness is the state of all aspects of ourselves: mind, body and spirit something we focus heavily on in yoga. Our desire to take care of ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually introduces us to a whole new level of self healing.
A self-healing day addresses your vital needs as a whole. Often times when we have the opportunity to have a day to ourselves we realize we need more solitude. Solitude is an important part of this self healing process as it allows us to renourish and reflect but it is up to us to decide what we need in order to cultivate wellness into our lives. Intentions transform what seems like a simple, peaceful day into a day of healing. Savor the stillness and simplicity by giving yourself permission to take advantage of this time. A day for ourselves is often looked at as being lazy or passive but to do so requires so much awareness and presence. It is vital for us to stay energized! We each find different activities that bring us tranquility. This can be as simple as preparing a nutritious meal, gardening, studying, journal writing. etc. The list goes on!
We begin to attune in the present moment when we draw our focus into the calm around us. The needs of the body, the heart, and the soul are then revealed. We then have a clear outlook of what we need in order to heal. Each day of healing you experience will be different because our needs are constantly changing day to day. Whatever mechanism you decide to engage in will leave you replenished. Yourself as a whole is the ideal image of health!
