Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower. ~Hans Christian Andersen.
You might have never thought of a flower as a weapon, but it most certainly is when it comes to fighting for one’s well-being. Just as you might tend a garden, it is essential to care for and maintain a healthy balance in your and/or your families lives.
Balancing the different components of your well being is more than just practicing positive emotional or physical habits, it is also about harmonizing your psychological, social and spiritual self. Plan and make time for activities which foster wellness and balance these components in your daily life.
Activities such as gardening, nature walks, game nights, reading, creating in the arts, cooking, listening to/playing music, visiting museums/parks or participating in a physical activity all help to maintain a healthy balance.
Making space for alone time is important too, but also be sure to put aside time to be present and spend quality moments with those you love.
