A healthy boundary relieves one from unnecessary stress and possible health issues down the line. Simply decline from the responsibilities of being everyone’s savor, and put your health first. Say “No” to demands that affect your mental health and well-being. Instead, invest more time and energy to nurture yourself. Practice more self-care through journaling, meditation, exercising, volunteering, spending time outdoors, and putting more joy in your life. Fill your cup first often this Fall season.
Meditation is a self-care practice in this noisy world full of distractions. People used to think it’s a woo-woo practice, but more scientists and different religious organizations are adopting it. It’s a way to center the wandering mind to peace and wellness. It allows one to hold pain, reduce stress, be more aware of one’s consciousness and surroundings, improve focus, become more creative, improve sleep, and more. It can be done anywhere for as short as a few minutes.
You let go of the stressors in life and be. You rise to a higher state of consciousness. You feel a sense of timelessness as you experience the moment of life. It’s a journey inward to find the true self and happiness.
