esoteric : adj.
Ever feel as if this world is yours, to protect? It’s a heavy burden, feeling the pains of the earth ever so deeply, yet at the same time, discovering all of its natural wonders that give you a feeling of faith that everything is as it’s supposed to be. These experiences I’ve lived through since a child. Still, as an adult, I feel so deeply, only able to maneuver with it better.
wellness : n. the quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as the result of deliberate effort.
Everything begins with the mind. Living with depression and having been diagnosed as schizoeffective, I’ve found these practices to be helpful, while refusing medication. Maybe this is regurgitated information for most, but should be utilized. Practice active mindfulness, daily. Any negative thoughts, actively counteract with something positive. Speak positively until that negative thought is banished. Be grateful for what is at this present moment and all that is desired will find its way. Now, practice with food. “You are what you eat.”, is true. Balance is what counts here. Raw fruits and vegetables, grains and legumes are great for nourishment. Participate in physical and breathing exercises daily. Also, read daily, keep the mind active and learning.
mental : adj.
