Global Wellness Day began in Turkey in 2012 and has spread to be a worldwide celebration. Wellness is something we are always on board with, so we’ve shared five tips for well-being in honor of Global Wellness Day on June 8.
- Be Grateful
The effects of gratitude are astounding and consistently associated with happiness. If this is new to you, don’t worry, you can practice! Being grateful is a daily effort with huge rewards for both mental and physical well-being. Try writing in a gratitude journal for one month and you will never go back.
- Nourish Your Body Well
We are surrounded by poor nutrition choices and it takes serious effort to eat healthy. Drinking plenty of water and choosing food that will nourish your body is so important to well-being. Of course, there is nothing wrong with indulging every so often, but food should be fuel for your body. So choose wisely. And don’t forget body scrubs, wraps and massages to give you a boost.
- Connect With People Around You
Connecting with others means having a conversation, sharing a laugh or a meal, and spending time with people. Making meaningful connections is vital to well-being. Why? Because this is how deep relationships and friendships are formed. A tip: connecting through social media and text message doesn’t count for this one. Pick up the phone, schedule a dinner or drop-by in person.
- Sleep Well
It’s a no-brainer that our bodies need sleep to function properly, but getting enough sleep is elusive for many. Staying up late to work or watch T.V. can impact your well-being negatively if it becomes a habit. Your body can survive on fewer hours of sleep, but it cannot thrive. Set an alarm and stick to it. Utilize essential oils. Your physical and mental health will be better because of it.
- Practice Regular Self-Care
It’s easy to get into a routine and set yourself on auto-pilot. And if you’re busy sometimes this is helpful, but it’s important to remember that your well-being and mental health crave self-care and supplements. It’s different for everyone; it could be alone time with a book, a weekly bath, a night out with girlfriends or a regular trip to the spa (we vote for this!). Whatever it is for you, schedule it and stick with it.
We feel strongly about the importance of well-being and its effect on mental health. We hope these tips help you make well-being a priority.
