Top 3 Wellness Tips: Spring into the New Season!
As spring prepares to stretch its wings, we felt inspired to share our top tips with you – learned from our time spent at Columbia Beach Resort – about how to revitalise your mind, body, and soul, in putting your best face forward for the new season.
1. Connection lost?
Nurturing a connection with your significant other, your children, your friends or – all importantly – yourself, can easily be overlooked in place of seemingly more pressing issues.
But feeling disconnected can have terrible consequences on your wellbeing. So how can you reconnect yourself with your surroundings?
Forsake emails and texts for talking with your family and friends face-to-face; give yourself time to really behold a beautiful view and live the moment before pulling out your camera to snap a picture; try a group activity, such as hiking or cycling, to bond over new experiences, and dedicate a little time to yourself every day to engage in your personal pursuits of the soul, be it reading, listening to music, or doing yoga.
2. Live to learn; learn to live
We shouldn’t abandon our ability – and, indeed – our thirst for learning just because we graduate from formal education into the school of life.
Learning engages our minds, boosts our self-esteem, and can encourage social interaction as well.
Whether taking on a new language, or a new sport (kite-surfing, anyone?), learning can be as gentle or high-energy as you like. Either way, it pushes you out of your comfort zone and challenges you to be your best, and that’s never a bad thing.
3. Giving is receiving
Official organisations actively involved in encouraging wellbeing cite research into actions for promoting happiness that shows committing an act of kindness a mere once a week over a six-week period is associated with an increase in wellbeing.
A simple act of giving – your time, attention, care – can, in other words, reap an abundance of mental and emotional rewards.
Columbia Beach Resort’s Cat Care Project has become a staple of our interaction with our local environment, and any and all associated with Columbia will attest to the joy in seeing a once weak stray bouncing past us in full health and happiness.
