Let’s talk about one of the most important things in life — one’s overall wellness. When we say wellness, we aren’t just talking about the physical aspects of it. Actually, this time, we’d like to deal with the mental and spiritual sides of it. Why? Because being physically healthy sure is important, but what about what happens in our minds? It’s just as essential to deal with the stresses and anxieties of our inner selves.
No matter what you believe, all of us should keep our mental and spiritual wellness in check. Unfortunately, not many of us know how to do that. But don’t worry — we’re here to raise awareness and help you find ways in which you can feel better.
However, we don’t want to tell you to eat a healthier diet, exercise, or adopt healthy habits. While those things are necessary for a happier life, we want to give our attention to things that people don’t think of as often — the spiritual. Ready to learn more? Let’s get into it.
Balance Your Chakras
Something doctors won’t tell you at wellness checkups for adults is to balance your chakras. But to even get to this point, you have to know more about these energy points. The first thing people wonder is how many chakras are in the body, and the answer to that is 7, each of them representing something else.
But what is chakra balancing? Think of it as healing individual chakras because there’s usually one or two that are out of balance and need extra care. We won’t get into individual chakras because that would turn this blog into an essay, but we can tell you what you can do to heal your chakras as a whole.
Here’s what you can try:
- Meditate with a Chakra Candle
- Various breathing techniques
- Chakra chants
- Sound healing
And if you believe that it’s not your chakras that need balancing but your mood, you can always try a Balanced Mood Boost Perfume.
Connect With the Spiritual
After you balance and elevate chakras, it’s time to turn toward other spiritual things. We’re not just talking about God because people have different beliefs. What we’re encouraging you to do is turn to your faith.
You can do this through:
But whichever method you choose, the point of this is realizing you’re not alone. The Higher Power you believe in is watching over you, and you’re on a good path. Maybe this path is challenging, but you’re on it because you’re strong enough to push through it.
Besides connecting with the spiritual on your own, you can get in touch with your spiritual community. Spending time with people that share your faith is always helpful because they understand you better than anyone.
Connect With the Physical
After using spiritual channels to work on your wellness, you should try the physical ones next. Sure, you can start being more active – working out, taking walks, cycling. But the important thing is that you’re doing it with purpose. What does that mean? Practice mindfulness and be present in the activities.
The best thing we can recommend is connecting with nature. Go to your local park, try hiking, or go to the beach. Listen to the sounds, watch leaves move in the wind, and touch the earth with your bare feet. There are so many ways in which nature can heal you, and you should take advantage of that.
Not a huge fan of nature? We encourage you to still give it a try. Why? Because there’s a reason you feel so refreshed after spending time in nature. But don’t worry if this kind of healing doesn’t work for you — there’s still a plethora of things you can try.
But what if you don’t have the time to hike, balance your chakras, or get in touch with your spiritual community? Then it’s time to look inwards, and trust us when we say that you’ll always have the time for that.
Mental health awareness month 2022 may be over, but it’s always a good time to talk about working on yourself. We know that seeing a therapist isn’t affordable for a lot of people, but you can still do something for yourself — by yourself.
Looking inwards is all about acknowledging your needs and problems and how to solve them. If you’re not very good at dealing with emotions or working on yourself, here’s what we recommend:
- Keeping a journal
- Reading self-help books
- Expressing yourself creatively
You’ll want to find any kind of outlet that will help you express yourself because that’s how you can learn the most about what might be bothering you. But if that doesn’t work, you can always find a friend to help you out. Why? Just because you can’t afford a therapist doesn’t mean you shouldn’t talk to your loved ones about things that stress you out. Having someone to listen to you always helps.
Improving Your Wellness Can be Challenging
Finally, we want to acknowledge that working on yourself isn’t always easy. Not to mention, you don’t always have to actively work on yourself. We know how much effort that exudes, and it can be tiring even for the healthiest individuals.
That’s why we also want to encourage you to take breaks when you need them and break the rules of the healthy lifestyle you’ve set for yourself. Yes, we’re serious! Of course, don’t do anything that will put you in harm’s way, but you can eat an occasional burger even if your diet prohibits it.
Just remember that working on yourself can be as challenging as looking inwards or as effortless and luxurious as using The Zen Face Roller. And if you ever feel like you could be doing more or there’s something missing, check out our Wellness collection because we’ve got you covered.
