During my February podcasts this past month, we were able to explore health and wellness practices from 5,000 years ago to present. Each guest brought a different view to ponder and it was just fascinating to learn about. Whether ancient or modern, there are all kinds of ideas you can consider to improve your life in a way that meets your needs and works for you. While each approach can be impactful, they all target different areas of the wellness wheel. There is lots to consider when thinking about what suits you best.
This past month, we learned it is fundamentally important to check in with yourself. If you listened to any of my February podcasts, you would find multiple ways of doing this. As Amanda Marie from Wicked Smaht Wellnessnotes, checking your “MyFi” signal is key. The word fidelity (the “FI” part of “MyFi”) means devotion to something or someone. So why not make yourself the focus of your attentions? From Amy Weitzman at The Pleasure Center, slowing down is the way to be more in tune with your body and mind and to get more pleasure out of all aspects of life. Pratibha Shah of My Ayurved helped us discover through her five mantras that we need to explore our spiritual self and mental capabilities and not be so boxed into our physical self. Finally, Dr. Erica Zelfand of Simba Health urged us to ask the question “What would someone who loves themselves do right now?” when reflecting on self-care. All of these actions and thoughts positively impact your health and well-being.
There is no single “right” way to care for yourself, but there are so many approaches and ways to embrace it. You just need to find the one that works for you. At the end of the day, all these paths lead to a healthier lifestyle and wellness and that is the important thing. If you missed any of these episodes, you can listen to them here at any time.
