Wellness -for the now

🍀Stay Connected ❤️

My dear readers,

As we head towards the new year amidst the buzz of the festive spirit, I write again to touch base with each of you to review the year in the context of wellness and connectedness. This year has been much about the pandemic – and much more about the lessons learnt during what has been a year of crisis for so many of us.

❤️- Pohutukawa – a season to celebrate from Southern Hemisphere ☀️

Ironically COVID has emphasised connectedness in more ways than one – COIVID touched all of humanity -regardless of class, gender and race. We also got to learn new ways of keeping busy- having purpose – and living well –working from home has been the norm and long distance travel almost a thing of the past.

About a book called SPARK😉

How did we stay connected? What helped ….

All of the aforesaid comes from loving more …..and living in the now…..”Anyone can live sweetly, patiently , lovingly , purely till the sun goes down. And this is all that life really means .”- Robert Louis Stevenson”

So Let our New Year be all about loving more and living in the now 😊

Wellness – let’s think with our hearts …. ❤️

Greetings dear readers I needed to take a mini break and so I did . Today I was reminded of the thought that having more space for heart matters – like love patience and kindness has everything to do with wellness.

St.Francis of Assisi – advocate for kindness love and peace

The intention here is to share insights on kindness love and gratitude on our wellness .

Here’s a story for you : A collegial friend of mine one day said that at the moment she was taking care of an unwell member of her extended family – which sometimes is challenging . She retold that what made it possible for her was telling herself that she needed to make her heart just a little bigger- To make room for love and kindness and then everything seemed less challenging .

An adage from one of the kindest humans ❤️

Another piece of information that I read and found incredibly valuable was from the Heart Brain foundation – the principles resonates with the pearl of wisdom from my friend’s story .

Here are 3 concepts for you 🍀

1. When we make decision from the heart – we allow room for creativity and positive emotional experience

2.Heart has its own intrinsic system and heart sends information to the brain – that can influence how we think feel and engage – which ofcourse has an impact on our wellness

3.So when we feel kindness and compassion in our hearts – when heart and brain are in sync – we allow ourselves a pathway that leads us towards becoming kinder -better connected – purposeful and resilient beings

Finishing today’s writing with much love and here’s a picture that is finally completed and ready ☀️🌟🍀🎼👏🏽
