Here's hoping that you'll find your own unique way to take hold of wellness in 2019!
A good friend of mine recently expressed the sentiment that life is interactive; it responds to input from us. I thought this was so simple and accurate, yet so significant, too.
When we find ourselves facing challenges or feeling uncertain about what our next move should be, it's easy to freeze up or shut down. We delay things or put them on hold. We decide to sit still until we know exactly what our next move should be. This can lead to even more uncertainty; we feel even more stuck and more unclear about how to proceed. Eventually, inertia sets in, and it becomes difficult to do anything.
Oftentimes, the best thing you can do when we find ourselves in such a state is to simply take action – any action. Anything that gets you moving and engaged with life again.
We know the importance of caring for our physical body, but how much time and care do we devote to our mental and emotional well-being, and how we're doing on the inside? Someone may look great on the outside to everyone else, while feeling stressed, frustrated, overwhelmed, or unfulfilled on the inside – all of which is very likely to impact their physical health sooner or later.
Small changes, when practiced consistently, can lead to a noticeable improvement in your inner state and overall sense of peace and stability. You might be surprised at how a few simple steps can leave you feeling calmer, clearer, and more focused.
Here are some tips and strategies to help you nurture your inner wellness.
As we head into the cold winter months, it can feel as if we're being hit from all sides. We spend more time inside, where we're often exposed to extremely dry air. With windows sealed to keep the heat in, we're sealing in all that stale air as well. Meanwhile, we get far less sun exposure, which takes a toll on our physical and emotional health.
Here are some ways to deal with these common cold weather issues.
