Wellness is a highly debated topic. It’s illusive. Everybody wants it. Some know how to get it. Some know how to keep it. Some don’t know how they lose it so easy. It’s obvious that health and wellness are needed in life to make an individual happy.
It can mean a lot of different things to different people. To some, wellness means being loved. For others, wellness means eating well, or exercising. Still for others, wellness means finding a spiritual connection in which to root their lives. No matter the person, there are 3 things you should have around in your life to increase your well-being.
Green Leafy Things
Not only should you be incorporating green leafy things into your diet more for your wellbeing, you also should be incorporating green leafy things into your surroundings. People who have more plants in and around their homes are not only happier people, they are also healthier people who are getting a lot more oxygen.
It’s a scientific fact plants take in carbon dioxide and put off oxygen. Just the right symbiotic balance to live with humans who put of carbon dioxide and take in oxygen. It’s just meant to be. It’s science. Pot them inside, plant them outside. It doesn’t matter, just get more leafy things in your life now.
Less Tech Time
As tempting and easy as it is to spend all your time on various technology, it’s good for you to disconnect every once in awhile. Your soul wasn’t meant to be ruled by Facebook, Instagram, or Netflix. It’s actually proven that social media sites depress people.
Do yourself the favor and go off the grid even for just a couple hours a day. You’ll find yourself rejuvenated and you’ll be a whole lot more productive. People say they don’t have enough time to get everything done in a day, but really, they do…they just waste their time.
Family and Friends
This generation is an independant generation. People move away from family to pursue careers in cities or foreign lands and they end up being alone and disconnected. It’s time to possibly think twice about where you’re living. Family units are a here for a reason. They might be dysfunctional, but they sure are good at making you feel less alone.
The same can be said for friends. As people grow older, they have their own lives and they grown apart. Do everything in your power to keep your relationships close. It’s all people have in the end. Without love, we are nothing.
If you incorporate these three things into your life, you will feel a lot better for it. It’s easy to get caught up in life and lose sight of what is important and holds true value. Be green, unplug, and be intentional with your relationships. That’s at least part of the recipe for happiness. The rest is up to you.
