Elements Massage-Coral Springs: Emotional Wellness and What It Means For You
CORAL SPRINGS, FL – October is the month of emotional wellbeing and a great opportunity to get a deeper look into what emotional wellbeing is and what it can mean for you and your overall health.
According to the National Center for Emotional Wellbeing, emotional wellbeing is “an awareness, understanding and acceptance of our feelings and our ability to deal effectively with challenges and change”. Whether you’re feeling like you’re on cloud nine or struggling with one of life’s little curve balls, it’s important to find self-care practices to support healthy emotional well-being through balancing your mind and body.
Sounds easy right? Not really for most of us! We tend to get caught up in current events, daily pressures, and worries about tomorrow. There is nothing wrong with that in itself. The problem arises when this turmoil leads to chronic emotional stress, such as depression or anxiety, which affects our daily activities and relationships. High levels of stress can even lead to physical problems like ulcers, diabetes, and a weakened immune system. Science shows that an imbalance, be it your mind or your body, can adversely affect our overall health and wellbeing.
Here are some ideas on how to support your emotional wellbeing and keep your mind and body balanced. Experiment, discover what works for you, and commit yourself at least a few weeks to give your new routine a chance to take effect. Hopefully, over time, you will feel a positive change in yourself.
yoga– Yoga calms you down, stretches you, helps you slow down, clears your mind and teaches you to really breathe. There are a variety of different types. Try a few and find the ones that suit you.
meditation– This can be a five minute mindfulness break when you don’t have the time or focus to do anything more. Seriously, it only takes 5 minutes a day to feel a change. (For more tips and benefits, see our previous blog on meditation.)
massage– Massage therapy supports a healthy connection between body and mind. It can relieve pain, promote relaxation, and relieve stress and tension. A monthly massage is a simple thing to incorporate into your self-care routine to take care of your body (and mind)! With the Elements Massage Wellness program, you get monthly massages that are 100% tailored to your needs and none of them have a contract. The only thing you commit to is your wellbeing.
Sleep– When you get good zzzz scores, you can concentrate better, think clearly and function optimally. Most adults take between 7-9 hours. Find your sweet spot and stick to a regular routine for optimal sleep hygiene.
gratitude– A daily gratitude practice helps you focus on the good things in life. You will hold onto positive emotions longer, jump back faster, and appreciate everything you have.
With practice, we can build and maintain our emotional wellbeing. Integrating healthy habits into our daily lives gives us the resilience to face even the toughest times. These daily, weekly, or monthly practices help us feel better now while investing in our future wellbeing.
