The Importance Of Mind, Body, And Soul Balance

The combination of mental, physical, and spiritual wellness is undeniably important to the individual. However, we live in a world that largely focuses on the physical factor of wellness which, in this day and age, includes healthy eating, a fit body, and an overall attractive appearance. Meanwhile, the busier that our day-to-day lives become, the harder that it is to achieve mental and spiritual wellness.

What exactly is wellness? One article claims, “Wellness is the search for enhanced quality of life, personal growth, and potential through positive lifestyle behaviours and attitudes.” With that said, in order to attain overall wellness, one must not only focus on the physical aspect, but also the mental and spiritual factors.

As the mind, body and soul are so intrinsically intertwined and they directly affect the action of the others, it is essential to maintain a balance between the three major areas of wellness. Here are a few simple tips to contemplate integrating into your daily routine that will help to create a balance.


Sleep well.

Sleep is the most vital part of our day because it allows our mind and muscles to heal and repair. A lack of sleep directly affects our performance the next day, weakens the immune system, and disturbs our hormonal balance.


Exercise daily.

Exercising is one of the most important factors in maintaining overall wellness. It is not only important for weight loss, as it also acts as an outlet for relaxing and mental unwinding.


Consider taking up yoga.

Even though people may attend yoga classes for its trendiness, yoga has been proven to generate overall wellness. It is a form of meditating that helps the body to unload through its stretching of the muscles, deep breathing techniques, and mental decompression.


Do more of what drives you.

Among the many duties that you may have, try doing more of what you love. When you are passionate about something you will not only do well in it, but also have fun partaking in whatever it may be.


Eat wholesome, nutrient-dense food.

Think of your body as a machine. In order for that machine to be as efficient as possible, you must present it with the best possible oil. What you put in your body directly affects how you feel and how you perform.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
