Inspired Wellness: Rejuvenation for your Family




Being mindful and proactive in all aspects of life is the clear path to wellness. Knowing our state of health physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually allows us to take the responsibility in our own hands and create a life of peace, balance, and clarity. By opening your heart to wellness, you foster in an entirely new way of being for your family.


Physical Wellness

Physical health begins with having a great respect for our body and its complicated systems and functions. Many of us have allowed the care of our bodies to wane by eating unconsciously, ignoring its signals, and not being appropriately active. Here are activities and behaviors I recommend for getting you started on a path to physical wellness:

• Eat whole, natural foods, such as fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, and lean proteins. Avoid foods laden with chemical additives, artificial sweeteners, and preservatives. If you choose to indulge on desserts, alcohol, and simple carbohydrates, keep your intake to a minimum. A balanced diet is best for the entire family.


• Maintain a healthy form by being active every day. Take a walk together, dance to ecstatic music, or paddle a kayak. Keep your fitness schedule fun by being diverse and creative. Regardless of your age, ability, or size, you can develop a program appropriate for you and your family.


• It is essential we find down time for our entire being to rejuvenate. Reduce caffeine intake, avoid stressful activities, and add a brief meditation prior to bed to ease into a more relaxed, centered state.


Mental Wellness

After long days at work or with the kids, it is easy to zone out in front of the television and collapse. We often feel overworked, yet underutilized. Life can become frustrating when we sense we are merely going through the motions and not being intellectually stimulated. Challenging ourselves mentally keeps us young, vibrant, and smart. Try a few of these techniques to keep your mental gears turning:


• Sign up for a class at your local college, technical school, or community center. Dedicated time alone to pursue your intellectual interests can revitalize your sense of self and give needed respite from family obligations. You will learn new skills, meet interesting people, and rediscover parts of yourself long ago abandoned.


• Organize a book club, poetry circle, or hobby group for your friends. Getting together with those we care about can be a positive, uplifting experience. Add stimulating conversation to the mix for a truly rewarding time. Discovering the intellectual aspects of your friends and yourself can be illuminating.


• Expand your comfort zone by learning a new language, instrument, or art form. Basket weaving, jewelry making, or writing short stories in your journal. Creative pursuits not only stimulate the mind but also enhance intuitive abilities.



Spiritual Wellness

Spiritual well-being provides us a sense of belonging and connectedness in the face of life’s varied experiences. Knowing we are a part of something greater than our own individual personality and physical being allows us to appreciate the magnificence of the Universe. Open your heart to spiritual expression by exploring these activities:

• Find your place of fellowship. Join a church, synagogue, mosque, bible study group, or other place of community worship. Surrounding ourselves with others living a life of faith allows us to feel supported in our decision to make Spirit a priority.


• Take a yoga class to discover the inner peace that stems from the meditation, poses, and beliefs associated with this form. It is more than stretching for fitness! Yoga is beneficial to our mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Allow its inner calm to wash over you as a wave glides over the sand.


• Contemplate your being. Determine for yourself who you are and what you believe yourself to be in this vast expanse of Universe. Be with nature. Read. Meditate. Pray. Take the time to explore your spiritual self.



Energetic Wellness

We are vibrant beings of energy, continually sending and receiving signals. We can champion energetic wellness to our families by demonstrating a healthy respect for this complex system. Be mindful of these techniques as you integrate energy into your life:


• Start and end each day with a clearing exercise. Quickly visualize your aura and clean up any debris in your biofield. Blast away any toxic energy with the wash of vibrant colors and the intention of love and peace.


• Dedicate a minimum of ten minutes each day for energetic communication with your highest self. This is the time to ask your questions about day-to-day events and await the answers. You can journal your explorations to track your progress.


• Stretch your intuitive muscles by playing psychic games. This builds confidence and helps determine how your subtle energy system communicates. This is not a competition and should be done with a playful spirit. Your accuracy just may surprise you!



We are all works of art created by the Universe as a unique expression of itself, a fragment of the Divine source. Appreciating your own significance in this world enables you to live a life of peace and love. You cannot truly care and nurture the spirit of another until you first cherish the self. Make a commitment this Fall to live a life of inspired wellness.
