5 Simple Tips: Because Wellness Doesn’t Have to be Complicated

At times we find ourselves overworked, overstressed, and frankly overwhelmed! Let's take a look at how we might simply, yet effectively move into a more balanced life.

Sometimes we over complicate things in life by overthinking. I know I am guilty of this. We should remember that there are simple thoughts and practices that we can exercise that will keep us on a path to good health and healing.

The Five Categories of Wellness

Wellness can be broken into 5 main categories:

  • Mental

  • Emotional

  • Physical

  • Social

  • Spiritual

Here are some quick thoughts to get you going in the right direction toward achieving wellness in 2021. By applying these five simple strategies, you can balance your life and find peace within.


Simple Tip #1: “Hear your inner voice of the soul.”

The goal of meditation isn’t to control your thoughts, it’s to stop letting them control you. Take the time to listen after asking internal questions. Allow those thoughts to wash over you and not become stagnant.

Remember that intuition is one of the ways The Creator speaks to you. These quiet moments of listening to that internal voice can bring about greater mental clarity.


Simple Tip #2: “Dance in the rain.”

Through the seasons in life, we go through many storms. These sometimes painful moments allow for much personal growth. We must remember during the storm to see the blessings that are within it. Each storm is nurturing, cleansing, and life-giving.


Simple Tip #3: “We are more than we seem.”

When you are feeling low it is important to fall back on these basics. Nourish your body with good food, sunlight, fresh water, plenty of sleep and movement. You are basically a house plant with complicated emotions. Go easy on yourself.


Simple Tip #4: “Unite to fight for wellness.”

Illness calls us to community. You are not made to heal alone. Shared experiences promote healing through support. If you have not found your tribe, look for others with similar interests in your surrounding area.


Simple Tip #5: Find what makes you tick.”

When you completely lose track of the time you are in flow (fun word artists use to describe their state of being when actively creating). You know you are fulfilling one of your soul purposes when time is suspended. Be sure that you have set aside time to do this. In doing so you can deepen your connection to The Creator.

Closing Thoughts

Life will always take us through ups and downs. Keeping things in perspective is key. If you remember to use these 5 tips to help simplify and refocus your life I truly believe it will assist you in finding your center once again. Remember also to be patient and kind with yourself.
