With the New Year just a day away, everyone’s minds are buzzing with new year resolutions and new beginnings. Regardless of the tasks you’ve set for yourself, the ultimate goal is being happy and well. Start this year off by deciding to keep an open mind and taking ownership of your body and wellness.
Open-mindedness is the foundation to not only getting well but also staying well. By being open minded, you’re able to see that there are always options. It’s important to go in with an informative approach, not strangling any possibilities. Be open to alternatives, not discounting options until you try them.
By trying different things, it allows you to find out what works for you and what doesn’t. This allows you to get to know yourself better and learn more about your body. Knowing that opens up the road to even more possibilities.
Wellness is an ongoing journey; there is no be-all and end-all type of singular “answer”. That’s why it’s important not to cage ourselves in from other possibilities. Certain things may stop working for us or lose their effectiveness. Rather than being closed off and suddenly without options, keeping an open mind allows you to have a reserve of alternative.
There are so many distractions in life that we don’t think about our bodies until there is something wrong that’s demanding our attention. We all do it, we’re only human. The greatest thing we have is our health, so we need to take responsibility for it and fully value what we have.
Give yourself pillars to hold onto, regardless of what’s going on. For me, I always make sure I’m drinking enough water, eating nutritiously, and doing my breathing exercising. Even when I’m struggling, having these pillars to hold on to makes a huge difference.
Ultimately, changing the dialogue you have with yourself to be more open minded will change your life. Keep an open mind. That will lead you to having a deep seated wellness.
