The Benefits of Meditating Together

In the hustle and bustle of today’s fast-paced world, finding time to slow down and connect with your loved ones can be a challenge, especially as you go through the motions of some of the day-to-day responsibilities you tend to either individually or together. But, much like meditating on your own can bring a sense of grounding peace within. “Taking the time to meditate together can help you feel more at one with your partner,” says Jessica Alderson, a relationship expert and co-founder of So Synced, a dating app that matches compatible personality types.

Healing Plants to Add to Your Garden

Whether it’s the time spent soaking up the sun’s vitamin D or the grounding sensation you get from digging your fingers into the earth, gardening is one of the most meditative and relaxing practices. And it can provide great healing, too. This is especially true when it comes to medicinal plants and herbs, which can provide a range of benefits, including supporting the immune system, decreasing stress and anxiety, and so much more.

How Learning a New Hobby Can Help You Find Your Flow State

Learning a new hobby is a fun way to try something new and potentially meet new, like-minded people. This is beneficial in and of itself, but the benefits of hobbies expand even further, into the realm of mind-body connection and flow state. “Flow state is an altered state of consciousness where we feel at our best and perform at our best across disciplines, whether that’s art, athletics, or business,” says Gabi Robledo, co-founder of Nomads With A Purpose and Creator of Flow State Warriors. “In addition to heightened performance and enhanced creativity, flow state could also be considered a merging of the mind, body, and spirit, which results in varying levels of fulfillment, transcendent experiences, and interconnectedness,” she adds.

The Healing Benefits of Salt Water

It’s hard to imagine our world without salt. In fact, it would be impossible since salt — or, sodium, rather — plays such an important role in the human body’s natural functions, and in Mother Nature. “Salt is closely tied, along with water, to the origins of life and, thus has numerous enlivening properties,” says Chaye McIntosh, the clinical director at ChoicePoint. Beyond these properties and the essential role it plays in bodily function, salt is also incredibly healing for the mind, body, and spirit.

How Embracing Your Inner Child Makes You a More Resilient Adult

When we are young, we are no stranger to resilience. As children, we are constantly trying new things — such as sports, games, and creative activities — meeting new people, and putting ourselves out there to form lasting friendships. But, as we get older and into adulthood, we start to lose a little bit of resilience. And, on top of that, we have a lot more responsibilities, worries, pressures, and roles than we did as kids.

DIY Wind Chimes

We could all benefit from a little more peace in our lives. And, one way to invite more calming energy into your home is through sound, particularly the relaxing sound of wind chimes. Much like attending a sound bath, listening to wind chimes can have a soothing effect on the mind, helping to lower stress levels and feelings of anxiety as well as improve mood. On top of inviting peace and relaxation into your space, wind chimes are also believed to attract positive energy and ward off back luck.
