Our Self Care Practice is Essential to Managing Daily Stress!
We can feel so much stress these days – especially as busy parents and professionals! Our stressful days are full of to-do lists, and a never-ending blitz of new emails and messages. It’s such an intense, dizzying and exhausting pace!
That’s why it is so critical – especially in these times – to take a few minutes to unplug, slow down and recharge. This is at the core of our self-care and well-being practice. And here’s the thing about self-care and well-being – if we don’t do it for ourselves, it won’t happen! It requires us to make our health and well-being a priority. It requires us to make sure our self-care routines happen – on a regular basis. Because, Lord knows, stress sure can show up daily.
A walk in the park. A ten minute meditation. Some stretching or yoga with soothing music playing in the background. Curling up with a good book – even if for just 15 minutes in the morning or at night before getting ready for bed.
These are the building blocks to creating a life full of well-being – something the Y on Earth Community explores at length.
One of the most powerful and effective ways to mitigate stress and cultivate well-being is to soak in hot, therapeutic baths on a regular basis. The health benefits of soaking in hot water are by themselves numerous and amazing. From enhanced cardiovascular health and weight loss to stress relief and relaxation, immersing ourselves in hot water 2-3 times per week will elevate our quality of life significantly.
This soaking practice is at the heart of Wele Waters. After years and years as a busy entrepreneur and father, I have come to know first-hand that a regular soak provides me the balance and the well-being that is so essential to being an effective and thoughtful dad and professional.
Our regular, deliberate self-care soaking practice will helps us transition from the stressed-out blitz of our busy lives, to the deep-felt bliss of rejuvenation and relaxation.
It’s time to get your soak on!
