What is Wellness?

Wellness is the constant process of change and growth leading one to an existence of experiencing harmony within all levels of Being. There are many interrelated dimensions of wellness: physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, social, environmental, and even occupational. Each dimension is equally important in the pursuit of optimum well-being.

A wellness-oriented lifestyle encourages you to adopt habits and behaviors that promote better health and an improved quality of life. Therefore, wellness is a positive approach to living, and emphasizes the whole person. It is the integration of the body, mind, and spirit; and the appreciation that everything you do, think, feel, and believe really does affect your state of well-being.

When we get “out of whack,” it is time to replenish and restore.  Ironically, however; many times being removed from a state of wellness creates stress, and the more stress we have, gets us into a slippery slope taking us further away from finding our perfect state of harmony.  Stress makes it difficult to focus, perform simple tasks, sleep, and as a result we are less productive.  Often, these conditions push us to a point of no return, as we tell ourselves little pleasures such as exercise, or yoga class, or down-time will be unproductive because only completing tasks will reduce the stress…when it is actually that pattern of “scattered grasping” toward goals and deadlines that is causing the stress.  Make sense?

Does this every happen to you?  ; )

These are all signs that what we need to do, is find our balance again so all elements of our life fall back into place.

When some of my clients contact me after having reached the “breaking point,” it take passionate care to find the perfect destination, spa get-away, yoga retreat, or adventure holiday for them.  Depending on their passions, and preferred style of travel, I will include anything from yoga, diving, snorkeling, meditation, and multiple spa programs to bring my clients back to a balanced existence.  But the key to staying in balance, is knowing when it is time to take such a break and invest in yourself!

Wellness travel also has a huge range of descriptions these days.  For some that would involve a detox retreat, for others…time to unplug from EVERYTHING electronic and replenish in complete communion with nature. Yoga in Bali.  Cooking in Italy.  A week with girlfriends in Greece on a beach and spa holiday.

I love my job.  My passion is Wellness.  And, this allows me to passionately find my clients the perfect travel plan to bring them back to bliss…back to again realizing their true state of Self, which is that they are…we all are: pure, perfect and complete.  This “remembering” who we truly are can only occur when we take time to pause and again settle into a place of bliss or Harmony.  This is the “place” I send my clients.  A fantastic little place, found in countless locations all over the world called, personal Bliss.

Om Shanti ~ Melinda
