Hey ladies, it is important that we are taking care of ourselves and it doesn’t just mean getting your hair or nails done on occasion…it means taking care of your mind, body and soul everyday.
Here are some simple things you can do to incorporate mind, body, soul health into your life on a regular basis.
One simple way that you can care for your mental health is reading material on subjects of interest to energize and stimulate your mind. It’s important to keep learning and presenting yourself with challenging questions for further research and social inquiry.
Another why to activate your brain juices is by participating in activities that get you exploring your creativity such as writing, painting or drawing.
It is so important to have healthy outlets for your emotions, unbalanced feelings bottled in can lead to physical illness.
Rather than keeping feelings of anger trapped in your body, you can scream into or pillow or use it as a punching bag. But remember that the safety of yourself and others is a priority when exploring healthy outlets for anger.
If you are sad about something, writing your feelings in a journal or sharing what’s going on with a trusted friend can both be very nurturing.
We all know that taking care of our bodies is essential to keeping them vibrant and strong, but most people aren’t committed to exercising or eating healthy on a regular basis because of the misconception that they don’t have enough time, or have to make huge adjustments to their current lifestyle.
However, you don’t have to spend hours each day on a boring treadmill. Things like taking a 20 minute walk on your lunch break or playing with your kids at the park (rather then simply watching them) are great ways to increase your physical activity.
To make some improvements to your diet, carry fruit, veggies or nuts in your day bag. Eating healthy, light snakes throughout the day assists with eating less and lighter during your meal times because you wont be starving.
Your spiritual health is an important part of your mind, body, soul health as well. You are not just a skin bag, you are a creative, energetic being who has a reason and purpose for existing in your human form.
Taking time out of your schedule to meditate has many benefits including mental clarity and stress reduction. Meditation will also enable you to be more in tune with your intuition….your gut feelings. You can reek the benefits of meditation with as little as 5 minutes a day.
Spending time in nature, near tress or plants or the ocean are great ways to get connected to the beautiful world that you are a part of. I often experience an overwhelming sense of gratitude when I am in nature.
Meditation and spending time in nature allows you to step outside of your individualized life circumstances and into a world that is whole perfect and complete…an experience that is both stimulating and calming.
Ladies we are not just a body, a mother, a wife, a business owner or staff member we are dynamic ever-evolving beings. We are better at everything we do when we take care of our mind, body, soul health.
