What Do I vote, support, or stand for regarding my wellness?
Just as there is a lot of ups and downs of who you support with different political parties and what they are for, there’s even a greater decision we now have to vote, support, or stand for something closer to home, and that is our own wellness on many levels. Sometimes it is hard to juggle so many areas in wellness, let alone, home, family, work, etc.
As we head into the fall/winter of 2020 those feelings are more real and more intense and so we have to be more creative, more aware, and more proactive than ever before.
There are up and downs, which are a normal part of life, but things like stress, struggle, anger get out of balance and lead to not sleeping and not being as active.
Have you ever noticed that different kind of problems take a toll on how you feel, and less optimistic about the future, nothing works out, overwhelmed and frustrated. It’s so important to maximize good mental health and well-being so you feel your best.
As we prepare for the winter months ahead, start to view, review what you have noticed pluses, and minus about winter. In the areas of sleep, exercise, eating, family and friends, thoughts, feelings and mood, hobbies/courses, and events. There are even more areas that you can delve into and bring balance to them.
Take a sheet of paper and draw a line down the center of it vertically. On the left side write spring, summer, fall, and the right side winter. For example, the left side might be getting together with family for bbq and the right side getting together for pot luck and cards. Just continue making a list of how you can balance, adjust, add, or modify the right side so you can experience winter differently.
If you love gardening, how about in the winter watch gardening on youtube, take a course, growing indoor plants, planning what you are going to grow next year, and ordering bulbs, seeds, etc. Maybe join a local group of gardening enthusiasts.
Also, think of what you like about winter and add them to your lists such as more reading, painting, sewing and crafts projects, renos, courses long soaks in the tub, etc.
When you start to get a little winter blues have you list handy and fill in those times with all the good vibrational activities that get you through winter successfully.
Below is an example of how to create your list.
Spring/ Summer/Fall (What I enjoy) Winter (What I Could do Now)
- Getting together with family BBQ 1. Potluck and cards/games
- Gardening 2. Plan garden, Youtube Channels, Read Gardening books, join a local group
- Walking outside 3. Meeting friend at park or mall walk and have a Tea and visit afterward
- Sit in the sun on the deck and relax 4. Soak in the tub and relax
- Sipping on a cool beverage on deck 5. Sipping on a hot beverage in a sunny location of the house
Things like reading, painting, online courses, doing puzzles, crafts, and sewing are great examples of inside activities.
Be creative with how you look at winter when winter is sometimes challenging and you are not a winter outdoor enthusiast. Winter is a great time learning something that you have wanted to do for a long time eg. a cooking course, learn a craft.
Mental health is of most importance during the winter month along with exercise, good sleep, connection with family and friends, good eating habits, meditation, and mindfulness, networking when dealing with stress, and extra things like Vit C, Vit D3, etc. to keep the immune system healthy.
The saying that doing the same thing and expect different results is oh so true with what you do during the late fall/winter months.
