Spring is a time for rejuvenation, making it the perfect season to invest in your wellness. Promoting wellness in your life allows you to refocus on the things that make you feel your best, bringing nourishment to your mind, body and spirit.
You deserve to bring more self-care into your life. Learn more about wellness and the steps to take to make it a part of every single day below.
So, what is wellness, exactly, and how can it bring positive impacts into your life? Think of wellness as routines that you add to your life to improve your mental and physical health, consciously making time for things that improve your quality of life. In recognizing the small things you do to make your mind, body,and spirit feel good, you open yourself up for more fulfillment.
While there are some consistent components of wellness, it's an individual journey; pay attention to what nourishes you specifically.
One of the best things about wellness is that it is easy to integrate into your daily life. It doesn’t require a radical lifestyle shift – it's about finding small components that make a difference for you. One of the key things to remember is to start small. You don’t need to completely change your life or try to do too much at once; wellness should feel good, not overwhelming.
There are five key components to wellness – mindfulness, exercise, nutrition, connection and sleep. Here are our steps to bringing a little more wellness into your life.
Step 1: Daily Meditation
Meditation is one of the best ways to practice mindfulness, allowing you to ground your body and mind into the present moment. In focusing on your breath and the present moment, meditation helps to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. There are many Spotify playlists that make the perfect backdrop to your most peaceful moments:
We also love the soothing guided meditations from Payal Khanwani; you can sign up for free, grounding meditations on her website here.
Step 2: Move Your Body!
Regular movement is a proven way to improve your energy levels and boost your mood. Exercise doesn’t need to be daunting; sometimes, simply moving your body is all you need to see the benefits of exercise. Some easy and fun ways to add a bit more movement to your day include taking a walk around your neighborhood, dancing to your favourite songs, or enjoying a gentle yoga class or your favourite hobby.
Step 3: Cook Yourself a Delicious Dish
Treating yourself to delicious and healthy meals helps to nourish your body and helps you feel full. Cooking and baking have mental health benefits as well; making a new recipe provides an outlet for creativity and reduces stress by allowing you to focus completely on the task at hand, much like meditation does. Who knew cooking had such benefits to the mind, body and spirit?

Step 4: Foster Connection
Humans are social creatures; connecting with one another helps to reduce stress and anxiety while improving our overall sense of happiness. Of course, we need to find ways to maintain our connections while staying safe. The experts at Temple Heath recommend hosting a digital dinner party with your best friends, making sure to connect with the people that you live with, or having safe outdoor hangouts with those who live in your neighborhood.
Step 5: Get a Good Night’s Sleep
One of the best things you can do for your overall wellness is to ensure a good night’s sleep. The other components of wellness – especially good nutrition, exercise and mindfulness – can help contribute to a deep and restful sleep that fully prepares you for whatever you may encounter in your day.
The best way to ensure a good sleep is by creating a ritual before bed full of things that make you feel soothed and calm. This could mean treating yourself to ten minutes of deep stretching, a relaxing bubble bath, or a warm cup of your favorite herbal tea. You can also light a candle, such as these soothing sustainable candles from Connection Candle Company , to set the mood with relaxing scents.
