To be fit requires only physical strength and endurance, but to be well requires additional elements of mental, emotional and spiritual development. I don’t know about you, but I often overemphasize the “physical” element of my wellness because it’s more tangible and makes me feel productive. However, simply relaxing, enjoying life and spending time with the people we love is just as, if not more, important than exercise. This weekend I focused on the “mental” and “emotional” aspects of my wellness with some good ole’ fashioned friends and family time.
On Friday night, I hosted a ladies’ a book club with my fabulous girlfriends in Dallas. Positive energy filled the room as we laughed, ate good food, sipped EXCELLENT wine (thanks to my girl Amy Hampton, Founder and Owner of Sociologie Wine) and engaged in heartfelt and inspiring fellowship…
Then on Saturday, my mom and I drove to Lubbock, TX to visit my little sister who is on the varsity dance team at Texas Tech University. It was a great opportunity to share what’s been on our minds and enjoy the authentic, West Texas culture. We also went to the Texas Tech football game to watch my lil’ sis cheer and dance on the sidelines. People have always told me that I’m a lucky charm, and this week I proved them correct. TX Tech football upset #5 West Virginia. Yea buddy – GUNS UP, Red Raiders!
While this weekend I didn’t workout as hard as I usually do (i.e. skipped my 2-hour Saturday Detox) I appreciated the beauty of balance. As we all start a new week, I encourage each of you take a moment and reflect upon your overall wellness.
Is there an element of your wellness that you tend to neglect?
One that you overemphasize?
