Be a Wellbeing Warrior!

Hey y’all, it’s Westly! I’m back with more health and wellness fun! That’s right, here at Healthy West Orange, we believe healthy living doesn’t have to be scary or complicated. We like to keep it simple and enjoyable!

Anywho, I’ve been committed to my well-being and mental health lately! One of my New Year’s resolutions is to take 5 minutes a day to practice mindfulness. With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it can sometimes be hard to tap into your feelings and really process them. So, I’ve got a life hack to share: a gratitude journal! It’s a simple, healthy habit that I’ve found makes a big difference in my happiness. You know what they say: an entry a day keeps the bad thoughts away!

Here's how I created my gratitude journal:

  • Attach photos that make you happy on the cover or pages
  • Get creative! Doodle stars, hearts, flowers, whatever makes you feel happy
  • Write inspirational quotes or mantras in the margins
  • Note special dates or moments, and write about why you’re grateful for those events and people

Another way I tap into gratitude is by practicing mindfulness! This means setting aside time to simply be aware of the present moment. When I quiet my mind and give my brain a break, it helps me clear out negative thoughts and welcome positive ones. Try it with me and follow along below! You deserve to prioritize your well-being and find mindfulness.

I hope these activities help you find a moment of calm in this busy West Orange world of ours.

That’s all for now, folks! See ya around! 

You deserve to prioritize your wellbeing and find mindfulness.
