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.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
