Have you been feeling tired and stressed from your daily routine? Do you want to get away from it all but you can’t file any more vacation leaves? Do you wish you could recharge without having to be absent from your job for too long? We’re sure you have friends and colleagues who are feeling the same way. So go ahead and schedule a weekend to get together for a road trip.
It’s a quick getaway that gives back huge benefits for your overall wellness. Here are 5 reasons why you should absolutely go on a road trip.
When we talk about wellness, the first thing that comes to mind is physical wellness. While your physical condition is an important aspect of your overall health, it is not the only determining factor of your general well-being. To be totally healthy, other factors should also be taken into consideration. One of them is your emotional health.
How you are feeling affects your ability to carry out your day to day activities. It leads to increase productivity. It also affects how you deal with other people. Individuals who are emotionally healthy treat others well.
Maintaining your physical wellness is an important part of your overall well being. Feeling good in your body allows you to continue doing what you need and want to do in order to pursue your goals. A healthy body also allows you to enjoy your time with family and friends more, work more efficiently and be more productive in all areas of your life.
Many of us often forget about physical health as we prioritise other tasks. Most of us don’t even remember to practice some form of self-love throughout the day or even during the weekends. Our physical health is an important factor in our overall wellness and we should always be taking care of bodies. Here are some things you need to ask yourself to see if you are physically well.
When you think of the word “grounding”, you normally think of how we keep ourselves safe from getting electrocuted inside our homes and work places. Actually, it works for the human body too.
Grounding, also called Earthing, is a practice that benefits our health. Unfortunately, in our modern world, we don’t do much of this or none at all. For example, when was the last time you walked barefoot on the ground, or on the grass?
Some part of the Philippines had been experiencing severe hot weather these past few weeks with a recorded temperature heat index (HI) of as high as 51.5 degrees Celsius (that’s about 124.7 degrees Fahrenheit). This extreme heat is still expected to continue this month of May. It might even get worse in the coming years not just in the Philippines but in the whole world, as a result of climate change.
Do you get mad when somebody cuts you on traffic? How about when your child does not listen to you? How about when your staff can’t get his/her work done properly? All of us encounter situations that irate us and test our patience on a daily basis. Getting angry and frustrated is normal. However, if it gets out of control, it becomes destructive on both our health and relationships with other people. Managing how to respond to such situations is a skill that all of us must have.
We are all aware how our health suffers from a sedentary lifestyle. That is why we need to incorporate exercise into our habits so we keep our body healthy and we can function at our best. The same is true for our brains, after all the brain is also a muscle and just like any muscle that is not exercised, it will deteriorate in the long run.
The world is a busy place and we are caught up in this hectic pace. Most of us lack sleep from trying to work hard in order to live the life we want or from worrying that we are not working hard enough or doing enough to achieve our goals.
