The importance of wellness for a life well lived cannot be overstated. In the spirit of attaining wellness as a community and to encourage all who live here to strive for overall well-being and true joy, we want to set forth a challenge. Reset, recharge and take control of your health with our 7-Day Wellness Challenge.
Challenge yourself: Ready, set, go!
Sometimes all it takes to reach optimal wellness is awareness, followed by action. Over the course of a week, how many of the following activities can you incorporate into your daily routine?
Focus on the positive
Meditation is more than sitting in silence with your eyes closed. It’s about quieting the mind. This empowering practice offers tremendous benefits for wellness and deserves a spot in your daily routine. So get comfortable, take a deep breath, and let your mind empty . . . a few minutes is all it takes.
Spend time with animals
From watching cattle peacefully graze in the fields to snuggling up with your favorite four-legged pet for movie time, there’s something special about animals. They are great companions for the fun times and a calming presence for the tough times. Friday, June 25, is National Take Your Dog to Work Day, so whether you work from home or head into the office, take this opportunity to spend some extra time with Fido.
Connect with nature
Connect with others
Humans are social creatures. Connection with others is crucial not only to our mental health but our emotional health as well. At Sterling Ranch, we pack our Community Events calendar with opportunities for residents to come together and connect — to find community with one another. Take action: grab a friend and attend a neighborhood event this week.
Take a break
In our fast-paced world, sometimes taking a break can seem impossible, but it isn’t. Give it a try: step away from the screen, close the social media app . . . just unplug and be present in the life unfolding before you.
Get your rest
It’s no secret that sleep is important and that many of us don’t get enough of it. Add an extra hour or half hour to your schedule and ride the REM wave to a more rested state. (Tip: Leave your phone outside the bedroom.)
It’s a heavy mental lift to hold our thoughts and emotions inside. By taking pen to paper, you can release thoughts and ideas and get them off your mind. Give it a try — it’s amazing how this activity can make life feel lighter.
Create a playlist
Create a playlist to match the rhythm of your day and explore the power of music to energize or calm your mood. Need to focus? Consider some classical tunes. Going for a run? Download a sweet beat before heading out on the trails.
