Welcome to the 2022 Greenwich Mom’s Health and Wellness Guide! This year we are super committed to supporting the Moms of Greenwich in prioritizing their health. But first, let’s take a moment to define what true health really is:
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being.”
Health is our greatest wealth, our true currency. The cornerstone of true health can be organized into four pillars, that collectively create well-being. Each of these are uniquely valuable in their own right and form a complete system to achieve wholeness.
The state of being free from illness or injury. It can cover a wide range of areas including healthy diet, dental health, personal hygiene and sleep. Physical health is vital for overall well-being.
Suggestions to boost physical health: exercise/fitness, nourishing food, massage/ bodywork, infrared sauna, vitamin IV’s, physical therapy, routine teeth cleaning, well visits /check-ups with Doctors.
A state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.
Suggestions to boost mental health: talk therapy( important if you are deeply struggling or feeling stuck, to receive professional support), movement, deep breaths, connect with a trusted friend, , work with Naturopath / MD/ Acupuncturist to balance hormones & heal sleep cycles, get involved – be a part of a community.
An important part of overall health. People who are emotionally healthy are in control of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They’re able to cope with life’s challenges. They can keep problems in perspective and bounce back from setbacks.
Suggestions to boost emotional health: talk therapy (social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist), breathwork, journaling, therapeutic bodywork, hair, facial & spa services- when we look good, we feel good! Most importantly, speak kindly to yourself.
Includes a purposeful life, self-actualization and capacities of human beings. Spiritual health creates a balance between physical, psychological and social aspects of human life.
Suggestions to boost spiritual health: yoga, meditation, breathwork, Acupuncture, intuitive bodywork , get into nature- fresh air, sunshine, and the ocean/ earth support restoration.
As an effort to support all the amazing Greenwich Moms, we have gathered a community of fantastic practitioners and businesses and services for all aspects of health. We hope this resource can serve to provide you with some much needed self-care, health and wellness. That said, it is with great joy that we bring you the 2022 Greenwich Mom’s Health and Wellness Guide. Let’s make it a great year!
