Stress can affect health (one’s physical, mental, and social well-being). Stress can affect wellness but only to a point, in that it can affect one’s perspective or reduce one’s energy/commitment to self-care. The end goal with The PILLARS Health &Wellness programs is to support everyone to achieve one’s fullest potential. We can’t always choose the state of our health; however, wellness is a choice. We can choose to manage our health conditions and actively work towards better physical, emotional, mental states. Do not fear- you are not alone in this journey. The PILLARS is here to help you create a plan, encourage you to perservere, and affirm you when you face doubt. Take a leap towards self-care and come by!
Reasons why you should partake in Health & Wellness programs:
Makes you happier. Meditation helps elevate one’s mood and it alters brain activity to enhance the area associated with positive emotional experiences.
Reduces Stress. Meditation helps one stop worrying about the little things and stay in the moment. Yoga also helps provide coping skills.
Improves Focus. Meditation allows one to learn how to naturally redirect thoughts
Improves Sleep. Focusing the mind on mental and physical processes aid in relaxation. Acupuncture also helps treat insomnia.
Relieves Physical Pain. Acupuncture can relax tight and overworked muscles and help reduce pain. Yoga is also helpful because it increases flexibility and body movement.
These are just a few of the reasons why you should try the programs offered here at The PILLARS. Self- care can be free! Give yourself permission to slow down and take some time for yourself. Your presence matters. I’ve realized that you have to be kind to yourself in order to be kind to other people. So, don’t hold back, come by and take a class!
