Integrate Holistic Health Into Your Life: 5 Simple Wellness Activities to Include in Your Day

Holistic wellness focuses on the connection between mind, body and spirit. It isn’t just about treating symptoms; it seeks to find the root causes that create the issues. By living a more holistic lifestyle, you may be able to enhance your body’s natural ability to restore itself.

Here are some holistic wellness activities to include in your daily life:

  1. Start Your Day With a Meditation Practice: This is a great way to clear your mind and connect with yourself before heading into the world. You might also take time to connect with your higher power during your meditation. There are many health benefits to meditation, including reducing stress, feelings of anxiousness and depression, all while enhancing self-awareness, memory and attention. 
  2. Well-being in Your Workday: Did you know that 83 percent of American workers report suffering from work-related stress? Holistic health can help reduce workday stressDeep breathing helps ease stress by sending a message to your brain to calm down and relax. Practice it at your desk or during a short break.
  3. Eat for Wellness: Getting proper nutrition can help you feel better, avoid illness, boost your mood and increase focus. Nutritional research consistently shows that eating fewer processed foods provides lots of health benefits. Focusing on eating fruits veggies, and whole foods to start. Eat small portions. Make sure you stay hydrated with pure water between meals.
  4. Wellness After Work: Socialization is an important part of holistic wellness. Having positive, supportive relationships can have a huge impact on both your mental and physical health. Nurture the positive relationships you already have by reaching out, prioritizing spending time with those people, expressing your appreciation for them and actively supporting them as well. If your circle of friends is smaller than you’d like, consider picking up a new activity to widen your social network.
  5. Write Before Bed: Writing about your day before sleep helps support your mental health by identifying problems, fears and concerns  as well as the things that are going well in your life. It can be an opportunity for positive self-talk and a time to identify what you’re grateful for. Prompts to help you start a journaling practice include writing a list of things that make you feel grateful, activities that bring you joy, a lesson you learned from a mistake or a note detailing what you appreciate about someone in your life.
