Are you searching for a journey to enhance your wellbeing? Congratulations on taking this first step that will shape your personal growth, we promise it’s going to be a fun adventure!
So, what is wellness anyway? Seems like a good place to start…
Rather than a state that you achieve, wellness is the proactive pursuit of health and well-being, influenced by our lifestyle choices, as well as our environment. The empowering part of this individual quest is that we have ownership of how we feel through the decisions we make. The fact that you are reading this shows that you have already made the most important investment — in yourself!
Wellness & Holistic Health
Now we’ve established that you’re on a positive path, we’ll dive deeper into how wellness is multidimensional, and ties closely with holistic health. This goes beyond physical health, which we know can be improved through diet, exercise and sleep. But there’s much more to wellness — it also encompasses mental, emotional, spiritual, social and environmental factors to provide a more accurate reflection of well-being and contributes to how we engage with the world, make meaningful connections, understand others and seek purpose.
The Mind-Body Connection
The mind-body connection refers to mental/emotional health being integral to physical health (and vice versa) as they influence and affect each other. Have you ever felt so nervous that your heart started racing? Or lay in bed awake at night ruminating about tomorrow’s to-do list? These are examples of how our thoughts have a tangible effect on the body, and the objective of wellness is to ensure they are in sync so that we are able to be the best version of ourselves.
Why should you make room for wellness in your life?
In the same way that wellness is not just one thing, and rather a combination of many, the benefits of pursuing it are also abundant. Whether you experience physical ailments or stress, focus on wellness addresses many of the issues we face every day, and can help to improve the following:
Quality of sleep
Better social connections
These are just some of the ways in which wellness can enrich your life, and as a part of the Lumina Retreats tribe, you will have exclusive access to practical, simple tips and tools that we will share so you can navigate each day with greater ease.
