Our physical health does not exist in a bubble. The mind, body, spirit connection is the trifecta of overall wellbeing and optimal health.
In modern day life we are so scheduled and so rushed all of the time with appointments, social engagements, work, school, family, friends, we barely have time to sleep let alone consider self-care as anything more than a luxury.
This is problematic thinking.
Somehow taking the time to take care of ourselves has been labeled as selfish. The truth of the matter is that if you do not take care of yourself and put yourself first, at least once in a while, you will eventually get worn down. At that point, you are no good to not only yourself but to anyone else either. In that worn out mode, you can become depressed, too exhausted to cope with daily life, or even physically ill. In any of these scenarios, it becomes even more difficult to continue the level of support you give to others.
Taking the time to care for yourself on a deep spiritual, emotional, and physical is necessary for your continued health, quality of life and longevity. It has been proven time and time again through neuroscientific studies that the brain is ever changing and can rewire itself back to optimal function when given the chance to relax, unwind, be at peace and actually heal.
In light of this, Monarch Wellness has chosen to offer several neuro-friendly integrative services to help you develop an ongoing state of tranquil mindfulness.
Some of our modalities which incorporate the whole brain and neurological system include:
- Sand Tray Therapy (the right creative brain is engaged during the building phase, and the left brain is integrated through storytelling as the builder translates the tray into verbal language to make sense of it)
- Play Therapy (integrates both the creative (right) and thinking (left) parts of the brain)
- Restorative Sound (the vibrations move through and around the body in a circular motion, creating a dance of right and left brain integration, and balancing out the complete nervous system)
- Yoga and Laughter Yoga (by definition, yoga means union in that it unites mind-body-soul, person-larger purpose, and unlimited other interpretations of union through the integration of movement and inner reflection)
While it may feel selfish at first to take the time out of your busy week to attend self-growth related classes, you will soon come to realize that by doing so what you are offering those around you is incredibly valuable – a new more energized refreshed happier version of you.
