NURTURE YOUR WELL BEING

My Personal Top 10 Well-Being Hacks

One of the first things I ask my new clients is what they do each day to take care of their well-being. 

Often, their response is silence and a lifted eyebrow. Or confusion, and a question like, “you mean, besides brushing my teeth?” 

Yup. I mean besides brushing your teeth. I mean, what actions, practices, and/or habits do you intentionally include each and every day, to take care of yourself? 

And, it’s important to point out that many of us hear “well-being” and we think of our physical bodies only. While that’s part of it, consider that well-being also includes emotional, relational, intellectual, and spiritual facets. In fact, your well-being is composed of any and all aspects that support you in being at your best.

I then invite my clients to create a list of 10 items that, if practiced every day, would positively impact their well-being. After the initial shock (“What?! Are you sure? Every single day?!), they create their list, and off they go to begin including one, yes, just one at a time, into their day to day lives. 

Here are 10 practices that I aim to incorporate every day. When I do them, I notice. When I don’t do them, I notice (and so do others, I’m quite sure).
 

My 10 Daily Well-Being Habits

  1. eat nourishing, delicious meals throughout the day
  2. take a walk
  3. cuddle with my dog
  4. gratitude prayer
  5. limit social media
  6. read something inspiring
  7. look at something beautiful
  8. listen to music that creates positive emotion (bonus if I feel inspired to sing along or dance!)
  9. express appreciation to my partner
  10. wear clothing that I feel confident in, and is also comfortable on my skin

I invite you to create your own list of 10 well-being items. Write them down, and keep that list where you can see it. Start with practicing one each day, and when that one becomes “normal,” add the next! If you feel inspired to share, send me and email and I’ll send back virtual high fives.
