Physical And Spiritual Wellness
by Lisa Griffin, guest writer for Angel Messenger
What is the biggest treasure for every person? Some of us find it important to get a good education or job, others believe that the most valuable things in their lives are memories or family, each of us can give a different answer to this question. However, everyone will agree that being mentally healthy and reaching physical wellbeing is the two most significant and priceless things in our lives!
Why is physical and spiritual wellness so important? In fact, a healthy body and mind are two integral components of a single whole human personality, without which everything else does not matter at all! A person can’t experience happiness or achieve the harmony with himself and his life if something disturbs him on the physical or moral levels. What does this mean? This means that if one of these components is lacking, for example, you get ill, then, without the improvement of this factor, you will not feel really happy – instead, you begin to experience anxiety.
What Are The Main Issues?
The lifestyle of a modern person, starting from school and ending with a retirement, is filled with constant vanity, numerous issues, and different events (both positive and negative ones). Daily we develop a faster pace of life to keep up with the fast world that surrounds us, and sometimes it becomes almost impossible to manage all the troubles in the business sphere, in relations with other people, in education and self-development, not to mention our own health. This leads to an even bigger number of problems! That is why each of us should define and remember the basic principles of emotional health and wellness including the most obvious ones like remaining benevolent, self-confident, and calm, being able to evaluate the dimension of the problem, acting in accordance with common sense, etc.
Why is spiritual wellness important? As a result of the often recurring unpleasant situations, we get a negative effect on our health and mood, which leads to an inability to focus, stay confident, achieve the goals we have set, and solve the accumulated problems. Constant accumulation of negative experiences can explain an unfavorable emotional state. This can lead to insecurity, anxiety, and fear.
What Are The Best Seven Ways To Improve Your Wellness?
Now, when we have found the answer to the questions “what is a mental well-being?” and “why is it so important?” we can take a look at some of the most effective techniques and steps that will help you
stay in harmony with your mind and body!
- Start managing your time wisely!
Create a convenient and proper daily schedule that starts earlier in the morning – it is a proven fact that you can greatly reduce the level of stress if you wake up early every day!
- Start doing yoga and meditations!
Everyone knows about the positive effects of yoga both emotionally and physically – it helps you to relax, discover your strengths, improve memory, immunity and overall health condition, get rid of stress, and discover your spirituality.
- Make healthy choices!
Following a healthy lifestyle starts with the smallest things! Begin with reconsidering your meals – include more healthy choices into your daily menu, make sure that you are consuming all of the important nutrients, and stop skipping breakfasts! The food we eat gives us an energy boost for the whole day. Therefore, in order to get a good energy reserve and feel happy, you should start making healthy choices and treat your body with something actually useful and nutritious!
- Release your negative emotions!
It is important to give yourself a “recharge” sometimes. Whenever we accumulate too many emotions and feeling that did not find their way out, we start feeling confused and stressed. That is why it is important to release your emotions once in a while – tell someone about how you feel or simply write it down on paper, both options will work!
- Traveling always helps!
In fact, not only traveling itself, but any change of scenery can help you find the harmony, discover your personality, relax and reduce stress – this is a perfect way to improve your general wellness! Also, try to spend more time doing outdoor activities or simply walking to get some fresh air, clear your mind, and feel the connection with nature!
- Drink enough water!
Everyone is aware of the water’s importance for our health. However, despite this understanding, we often forget about drinking enough clear water (not taking into account coffee, juices, tea or other drinks) during the day. The lack of water leads to dehydration, which can have many negative consequences on your mind and body, which means that you need to drink it in the necessary amount to feel well. Also, it is important to start your mornings with a glass of water!
- Stay positive!
Repeated stressful situations and wrong reaction to them lead to some minor functional disorders that eventually become organic diseases, which are called psychosomatic. These can include the following problems:
- Hypertensive diseases;
- Ischemic heart diseases;
- Bronchial asthma, osteochondrosis;
- Poor immunity and many others.
However, all of these issues can be solved if you think positively! You need to reconsider all aspects of your life, looking at each of them from a new, positive point of view and, once you make positive thinking a habit – you will notice incredible results!
