This is part of Mindstream’s participation in the Wellness Moonshot, an awareness campaign for a world free of preventable disease that’s led by The Global Wellness Institute. Here’s our package for October 2020.
What does RENEW mean to you? What thoughts and actions do you take for renewal?
“Day-to-day, our energy gets zapped by the grind,” Renee Moorefield, Ph.D., so accurately puts it in The Global Wellness Institute’s blog. “We may relapse into comfortable mindsets and behaviors — even when these wear away at our health and wellbeing. We may become disenchanted and disengaged as the meaning in our lives and work deserts us. We may feel stuck or bored or hassled, operating from an energy deficit that starts to seem so normal that we lose track of what it means to thrive. When this happens, we are in danger of losing compassion for others, as well as ourselves.”
For this month’s theme, she prompts us to wonder, “How can we deliberately renew in mind, body and spirit—and help others do the same?”
