Maintaining good physical health is important
to our family. We try to eat a nutritious
diet and include exercise and hydration. We
consider mental health part of our well-being.
During the Easter season, our daughter
invited us to join her for a spa visit.
Formerly we considered this self-indulgent;
however, now we consider it part of wellness.
Singing in the shower or around the house are
relaxing, rewarding and fun. Taking walks in the
neighborhood or at the lake are beneficial
to the heart and mind. Carefree. Happy.
Smiles, laughter, conversations, hobbies,
reading, writing, lifelong learning. Nurturing
spiritual well-being. Music, practicing
foreign languages as well as hobbies
are equally beneficial. Visiting art museums and
doing photography benefit our mental health. Stress
melts away quickly when we learn to take care
of ourselves. During the spa visit and lunch
afterwards, we felt relaxed and at ease.
Mental, emotional, and physical health dealt with in
one simple spa visit. Massages, pedicure.
Resting. Fireplace. Relaxation pool in view.
No talking or electronic devices. Whispers only.
Simple to do and yet difficult for some.
We heed our spiritual side too. Maintaining
good habits is a ritual of sorts.
Hale and hearty. Good health means
taking care of the entire being. Proper
breathing. Maintaining friendships. Reaching
out to others. Practicing the Golden Rule!
