Approach to Wellness
Life can be chaotic at times, especially as a student. That's why I believe wellness is showing up for yourself when and however your mind and body will allow you to. I don't see wellness as something that has to be a huge repeating time commitment. It can be as simple as a few deep breaths or dancing around to your favorite song. Wellness is unique to the individual, and I believe that it is important to show ourselves compassion if it takes us a while to figure out what works best for us. It's a continuous journey that will change over time.
Sometimes I love to move my body through dancing, yoga, rollerblading, or taking a nice walk through a park. Other times, I love to sit on my couch with a cozy blanket and watch reality tv. Since moving to Michigan I've enjoyed exploring some really cool areas and have backpacked pictured rocks twice! This year I've become more interested in painting and find that process to be very relaxing and enjoyable.
