4 Easy Ways To Focus on Wellness

Soon I'll be turning thirty-one and lately I've been thinking a lot about what I do to take care of myself both emotionally and physically. The closer I get to thirty-one, the more I've noticed that somewhere in my mid-twenties I started to truly focus on personal wellness and methods of self-care. I workout, do yoga, try to eat whole foods and seek out more time in nature.

Wellness isn't always something that comes naturally or easily. You definitely have to make time for it, but once you do you'll find yourself wanting to continue - no matter how busy your life becomes. Here are some ways that I have found works really well:

DO YOGA
I've been doing yoga for almost three years now and I've found that dedicated an hour each week to yoga has really helped with my anxiety and overall well being. Yoga has a magical way of centering you. If you haven't tried it - I suggest that you do. I remember when I first started I wasn't flexible at all and over the years I've progressed quite a bit.

EAT WHOLE FOODS
This is something I really started to focus on last year. I started to really pay attention to what I was putting in my body. I try and stay away from excess sugar and cheese because when I tried Whole30 I found that both didn't do well with my body.

MEDITATE
This is something that I have only recently started. Some may think it is the same as yoga, but I've found that doing ten minutes of yoga each day can add some much needed relaxation. Whether it's in the morning to center yourself or at the end of a long day to regain some calm, meditation can help. You can find a wonderful 30 day course on meditation here. Best of all it's free.

EXERCISE
It can really be any type of exercise. Just start moving. You can walk, run, jump run, dance - whatever you do get that heart rate up and have fun. This will sound weird, but the more energy you expend the more energy you will get from doing so. Running was something that I had to force myself to do and now that I've been running for over four years now I feel weird when I don't. Be sure to checkout my Stay Fit board on Pinterest.
