Welcome to the 12th and last Wellness Wednesday link up of 2018! The optional prompt is Self-Care Rewards for all the efforts that we've put in this year. In today's post, I have a short recap of my November wellness goals, and share my thoughts on the rewards of self-care.
NOVEMBER WELLNESS UPDATE:
In November, although I was in Morocco for part of the month, I managed to achieve all of my November wellness goals as listed here, and reviewed under Fitness here. Total for November: nine workouts at the gym, seven yoga classes, four swimming sessions, and three 5K runs. I also walked at least 45 minutes and meditated 15 minutes daily. I gained one extra swimming session by switching my swimming day from Saturday to Friday, and the best part is it's quieter at the pool on Friday...so far.
THE REWARDS OF SELF-CARE:
I'm motivated to take care of my well-being because I can feel the results when I do it consistently, such as:
- feeling focused after I meditate
- feeling relaxed with the practice of deep breathing
- feeling warm and energetic after a workout at the gym, a swim, or a run
- feeling calm and balanced after a yoga session
- feeling clarity and a sense of accomplishment after I do my daily walk
WELLNESS IN 2019:
I plan to continue with my wellness activities this month and in 2019. It would be super to have more bloggers and readers participate in the monthly Wellness link up. I'm thinking on the second Wednesday of each month and leave the topic open for anything wellness-related. Stay tuned for further announcement.
