Best Wellness Habits to Restore Your Body and Soul
Living in a world as hectic as most of ours are certainly takes its toll on our emotional and physical wellbeing. We want to be good parents, exceed at our workplace, juggle a bit of a social and romantic life, and there are only 24 hours in a day. Hence, there comes a time when we feel like all the batteries have been drained, and we have nothing left to give. That is a telltale sign that it’s high time we do something to turn our life around and reclaim our old selves back. Different people cope with daily stress in different ways, but we’re here with some of the most effective restorative practices that are bound to get you back on track, so stay tuned, take note and make sure you create healthy and mindful habits that both your body and your soul will benefit from.
There are tough and taxing days that, at times, can be ‘erased’ with something as simple as an at-home spa day. Truly, a great bath with all your favorite products, some soothing music, a healthy detox beverage in your hands and soothing music in the background is all you need. You can even take things to a new level with dry brushing, a great facial – follow your needs and do whatever it takes to get back that peace of mind. After that, just cozy up with a good book or a feel-good movie, and let the cares of the day simply roll off your shoulders. With all the right mindful self-care practices, you will not only achieve overall health, but also a glowing skin that will be a testament to that.
The all-encompassing remedy
Both the holistic, homeopathic and Ayurvedic medicine believe in treating the person, not just the problem at hand. Now, even though there may not be anything particularly wrong, aside from the stress that has climbed up and nestles on your shoulders, but as we all know, stress can have a massive impact on our physical as well as mental health.
That is why an increasing number of people have been turning to meditation, which has proven to come with immense benefits. It doesn’t only allow you to empty the mind and just focus on being, but when practiced regularly, it can lead to the diminishing of stress and anxiety and, keep depression at bay. When it comes to physical health, it can help increase your immunity, make you more energized, and it’s good for cardiovascular health as well. It literally treats the person as a whole, and if you have the chance, don’t miss out on the opportunity to visit some of the best places in the world (like Bali, India, Japan) in the world to practice and master the art of meditation and enjoy the much needed silence.
Loosen up those shoulders
Yes, meditation can do wonders for you, but that’s not the only healthy habit to adopt. When that tension and stress reach your shoulders, there is nothing like an excellent professional massage to untie those knots and make you feel so fresh and rejuvenated, transcendental even. Make a habit of booking your massages in advance and always show up for your appointment. Again, if your life involves a great deal of travel, don’t miss out on a chance to get the best massage in Hong Kong. This is a place where the art of massaging has been taken to a whole new level, and the best part is, thanks to the perks of the Digital Age, you can use a simple app and even book your massage way ahead of your trip. However, whether you travel or tend to stay put, massage simply needs to become an integral part of your life. It’s one of the most powerful de-stressing tools, and you leave the spa feeling almost reborn every time.
The undetachable sisters
Many consider yoga and meditation as sisters – the latter treats the soul first and the body second, while the former makes sure your body is strong, flexible, resilient, all the while being one of the few forms of exercise that treat the mind as well. Yoga has the power of putting your mind at ease, make you concentrate on the movements of your body, your breathing and helps you tune out the world – much like meditation. This is why they are considered sisters. Now, again, if life ever gives you the opportunity to work on your yoga skills in some of the finest yoga retreats in the world, don’t give a second thought before grabbing it.
Some of the most renowned yoga retreats are in places such as, again, Bali and India, but also Los Angeles and Cape Town. Still, even if you don’t find yourself in these necks of the woods, you can always find a great yoga class in your own town, or follow some of the most amazing YouTube yoga instructors that will help you get started.
You may not think this will help you personally, but being there for others and giving back is one of the most rewarding things on the planet. It first fulfills you spiritually, and when everything is fine with your soul, your body will catch up. Therefore, don’t waste another minute before finding out how service and mindfulness are intertwined and more importantly, how through being of service to your community, you are actually doing yourself and your wellness levels a favor.
