5 Ways To Embrace Wellness & Self-Care Today
In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it's easy to forget to prioritize our well-being. But self-care isn't a luxury; it's necessary to maintain a healthy and fulfilling life. Today, I invite you to pause, breathe, and explore five simple yet impactful ways to embrace wellness and self-care. These practices are not just for Sundays; they can be woven into your daily routine to nurture your body, mind, and soul. So, let's embark on this journey together, where self-care becomes a daily ritual, and wellness becomes a way of life.
🧘♀️ Mindful Morning Ritual: Start your Sunday with intention and self-love. Kickstart your day with mindful movement, whether yoga, pilates or a gentle incline walk. Nourish your body with a wholesome "breakfast" that breaks your fast, like a bowl of warming oats topped with fresh berries, peanut butter, and a drizzle of honey or my personal favorite, Zoats. This mindful morning ritual fuels your body and sets a positive tone for the day.
🌲 Nature Connection: Nature has a profound way of restoring our souls. Take a stroll in a nearby park or hike along a scenic trail. Breathe in the crisp, fresh air and ground yourself in tranquil surroundings. Nature connection is a powerful way to find inner peace.
🤍 Creative Escape: Disconnect from the digital world and engage in creative activities that ignite your soul. Whether it's painting, cooking, or any other creative outlet, these activities allow you to unwind, express yourself, and tap into your inner creativity. It's a form of self-expression that rejuvenates your spirit.
💕 Quality Time with Loved Ones & Friends: Cherish and nurture your connections on Sundays. Plan a fun activity with your family or friends, such as a picnic in the park, a cozy dinner out, or simply engaging in heartfelt conversations. Building and nurturing these relationships uplifts your spirit and fills your heart with joy and fulfillment.
Remember, wellness and self-care are deeply personal journeys. Tailor these tips to suit your unique preferences and needs, and make your Sundays a haven of well-being and self-love.

The “I’ll be happy when…” TRAP to avoid
So many people are waiting for the ‘next best thing’ in order to be happy. They say things like…
“I’ll be happy when…”
“I have the partner of my dreams”
“I have enough money in my bank account”
“I have the body that I want”
“I have that new car”
“I move into a bigger house”
That’s like making an unspoken contract with yourself that you’ll be UNhappy until you reach that goal. And guess what happens when they finally get what they want…?
They move the goalpost further out, so they’re chasing something out there to make them feel happy inside.
This is one of the biggest traps in our society. And why it’s important to cultivate the practice of being happy NOW.
I have found that the best way to exercise the ‘happiness’ muscle is through a consistent meditation practice. When you calm the mind, you can observe your thoughts and recognize them for what they are. Just thoughts. Nothing else.
Your thoughts do NOT define who you are. The calm, peaceful awareness behind the thoughts is who you truly are. And that’s where happiness stems from.
I’ve found that calm space of awareness using the Muse headband.
The Muse S is a brain-sensing headband that uses real-time biofeedback to help you find focused calm when needed.
It lets you know when you’re fully present to the moment or when your mind has wandered off.
Once you tap into this calming peace within yourself, it radiates into your world. You’ll go through life with ease and flow. This creates more happiness that comes from within.
