Wellness is more than just a physical state of being. It includes multi-faceted aspects of the self that span the physical, emotional and spiritual areas. At Elements Massage Scottsdale North, we specialize in nurturing the mind and body connection. As one of life’s most vital relationships, it’s key to get in touch with these parts of yourself and explore. Here’s a bit more about the different components you can get into to nurture your holistic wellness:
Look at your own patterns around emotions and investigate how you respond to feelings of happiness, anger, sadness, joy, and basically every other emotion possible. By reflecting on how you respond, you can identify areas that need work or attention and develop an awareness that supports your own maturing emotional health.
This category of wellness is the easiest one to understand as it involves how you treat your body. Do you eat nutritious food and get regular exercise? How many hours of sleep do you get a night? Regularly nurturing your body with the healthy building blocks of physical wellness has a great impact on how you feel. Not to mention, visiting your doctor and having your physical wellness checked is important.
Some people refer to it as spiritual, others prefer terms like social or intellectual wellness, but giving time to reflect on your ability to connect with yourself and others around you can lend you insight. Ask yourself how often you seek out others for conversation and connection. Forging these connections can not only empower you to learn more about yourself, they are critical to overall wellness and finding a place to be happy in the world.
