Let’s Begin Your Wellness Journey

In previous articles, we discussed how wellness is about balance. Our mental, physical, social and financial spheres need to flow at a level that brings us calm and peace. Today, I’ll give you a list of tips as you begin your wellness journey, and work on balancing your life.

Mental Sphere

  1. Be intentional about creating time for yourself; this is for you to spend however you please.

  2. Pray, fast, meditate; whatever your practice, try to make some time for it. Try out an app like Calm or Headspace if you’re new to meditation.

  3. Only look to the past to determine its lessons. In my experience, it’s best to keep these visits brief to avoid dwelling on guilt or things you can’t change. Keep a record of lessons you’ve learnt.

Physical Sphere

  1. Move for at least 5 minutes a day; try stretching, light cardio, cooking, anything really.

  2. Cut back on any harmful indulgences; it doesn’t have to be drugs or alcohol. As long as it’s being done in excess, find a way to check it. That being said, please don’t do drugs.

  3. Take care of yourself (even if you work from home). There are the basics like brushing your teeth, taking a shower, trimming your nails but you can also challenge yourself to maintain your appearance by keeping a couple of travel sized toiletries on you at all times.

Social Sphere

  1. Call the people who matter to you;(as long as they’re not harmful to your mental health).

  2. At the end of the day, this is all that matters.

  3. Keep a social calendar; explore events and activities that keep you feeling recharged.

  4. Be conscious of the media you consume and the social media accounts you follow. Fill yourself with content that builds you up and makes you feel good.

Financial Sphere

  1. Create a budget and stick to it; it may be hard, but you’ll feel a lot more secure knowing you have some kind of plan in place. But also, be kind to yourself knowing that there’ll be times when you don’t achieve your goals and that’s okay too.

  2. Attend a class or research how to manage your personal finances.There are seminars, online courses, blogs and online communities dedicated to personal finance.

  3. Try out a savings or investment app like Bamboo, Monzo, PiggyVest, Expenses, Mint or You Need A Budget (debt payoff).
