3 Ways to Nurture Holistic Well-being


There are so many ways to improve your holistic wellness, but let's start with 3 foundational practices for your daily life:

  1. Schedule dedicated time for exercise. Even if it's just 10 minutes, commit to physical activity 3-5 times a week, whether it's at the gym, home, yoga studio, or in nature. The key? Do something that brings you joy and even laughter—not something you feel obligated to do.

  2. Incorporate somatic practices into your daily routine. Take the time to connect with your body to improve body awareness, movement patterns, and release trauma from the body. It could be yoga, a body scan, or a somatic exercise.

  3. Cultivate curiosity and mindfulness. Find one activity you already have—brushing your teeth, having a coffee or tea, or walking somewhere. Focus solely on that activity. What physical sensations do you notice? Tension, relaxation, pain, ease, temperature... What is your breathing like? What colors and shapes do you notices in your surrounding? What do you smell? Hear? Get curious. Pretend you're doing this thing for the first time and see what arises.
