August is recognized as ‘Wellness Month’ and over the next few weeks, people are encouraged to reflect on their self-care regimens to ensure they’re feeling fulfilled and reaching their potential.
Officials behind Wellness Month shared that they view wellness as a highly personal practice that leads to individuals being the best version of themselves. This, in turn, gives them more confidence, courage, and love to give to others, ultimately impacting the world around us for the better.
They note that sometimes the smallest step in the right direction can end up being the biggest step of your life.
Your version of self-care could mean something as simple relaxing at home with a good book or a more challenging activity like hiking a particularly tricky trail.
Wellness Month reps stated that no matter how incremental or monumental your efforts are, they start with a pledge to make yourself a priority and to incorporate healthy habits into your daily life.
To show your participation and join together with other individuals around the world, snap a picture of your self-care routine and share it on social media utilizing the hashtag “WellnessMonth”.
