Wellness embraces different facets of our life such as the physical, mental and emotional aspects. And here are some ways for us to incorporate it into our daily lives for it to have a holistic effect that is truly beneficial.
Physical Fitness: Keeping fit is one of the most important ways for us to ensure good health. This means getting regular exercise on a daily basis. Many of us lead sedentary lives these days and are out of condition. This calls for regular amounts of exercise – whether walking, aerobics, gym workouts, jogging, you name it. This will keep your body fit, your weight down and your skin glowing.
Healthy Eating: One of the most effective ways to boost your physical health is to eat healthily. Ensure a regular intake of vitamins and other nutritional supplements. These will compensate for any nutritional deficiencies you may be suffering from. And of course, there is absolutely no substitute for eating a balanced diet – so plan your daily intake of food to include adequate amounts of vitamins, proteins, minerals, carbohydrates, etc.
Nurture the Mind: Mental health is most important to a holistic approach to health. You need to balance your physical health with your mental health. So ensure regular sessions of yoga that will nurture your mind and keep you stable and balanced and better able to deal with the vagaries of daily life.
Your emotional quotient: Every day we are faced with all sorts of situations that make us angry, or panicked, or depressed. And these, in turn, upset our equilibrium and affect the way we deal with relationships or problems at work, etc. An ideal solution to handle these situations is to do a little meditation each day. This helps us to calm down, be more analytical and rational. And therefore, better able to approach life with equanimity. Because when we are at peace, we create peace around us.
