What is wellness? Pondering #1

Leave a comment

As I sit propped in bed unable to sleep I feel myself relaxing just as I contemplate how I can slip back into my wellness. It’s been a busy couple of weeks. My husband retiring, my son at home after big adventures in his first overnight camp, me trying to settle into to the routine of a new office mate and new patterns of opening and closing a shared building. I’m spending a lot of time planning for the future that is a bit unknown.

What I haven’t given my self, in the busyness of play dates and shopping for school supplies and supporting my husband’s move forward into his consulting business, is the chance to just be. Ahhh, a big inhale and even bigger exhale. My headache is easing and shoulders are relaxing. I can hear the silence again and my being is moving to wellness.

This is my exploration. I also know I need to let go of my chaos survival eating habits. I need to cut up extra fresh veggies when making salad, plan a few meals ahead for leftovers we can all enjoy so we don’t eat out where temptation abounds. Be sure my water bottle is filled and ready to go for the car. Drop sugar and gluten again and nourish myself with local veggies.

Most of all I will go back to sleep by breathing deeply and feeling the refreshment of fully oxygenated cells from head to toe. My whole body can engage in well being and wake up to a new day full of conscious choices.

Good Night.
