Hello Wellness Warriors!

At D&G Wellness Consulting, we firmly believe that “wellness” is not just a word; it’s a verb—a practice that requires consistent effort. Understanding wellness is one thing, but it’s equally vital to prioritize and actively engage in wellness practices.

Let’s talk about the fascinating concept of neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to change itself over time. Our brains are remarkably adaptable, especially before the age of 25. However, even if you’re older than 25, don’t fret; you can still rewire your brain with some extra practice! The adage “Neurons that fire together, wire together” highlights how consistent prioritization of wellness reinforces positive neural pathways, making wellness an integral part of your daily routine.

Granted, it’s not easy to prioritize wellness. Much like learning to play the piano, knowledge alone won’t suffice. You must repeatedly practice wellness strategies and techniques to truly internalize them and improve your overall well-being.

So, how do you start prioritizing and practicing wellness?

  1. Check in often and find your breath: Take moments throughout the day to assess your feelings and needs. One effective technique is the 3/6 breath exercise—a simple yet powerful breathing practice. Inhale for three seconds, hold for six, and exhale for six. This rhythmic breathing slows your heart rate, reduces muscle tension, and promotes mental clarity. A few minutes of practice can go a long way in managing stress and anxiety.

  2. Brain Dump: Combat stress and overwhelm with this powerful technique. Set aside a quiet time to jot down all the thoughts, ideas, and tasks swirling in your mind. Don’t worry about organizing them; the goal is to clear your mental clutter. This practice can be particularly beneficial before bed or whenever you feel overwhelmed.

For this exercise:

  • Find a quiet space to focus.

  • Grab pen and paper or use a blank document.

  • Set a timer and write down everything that comes to mind without judgment.

  • Let your thoughts flow freely until the timer goes off or you feel your mind is clear.

  • Take a few deep breaths to close the activity and, if you like, dispose of the paper to symbolize clearing your mind.
