Wellness is a lifelong journey, and having the right tools along the way may help you feel happy, healthy, and strong. Everyone can benefit from a wellness toolkit, a collection of items, rituals, and activities that you can turn to that may improve your health and mood. To feel your best, prepare these must-haves for your wellness toolkit.

Guided Meditations

According to the Mayo Clinic, meditation helps maintain emotional health, cope with stress and anxiety, reduces negative emotions, increases creativity, and restores inner peace. So keep your favorite guided meditations on standby for your wellness toolkit. Just push play and let the inner calm begin!

Herbal Teas

A cup of tea can work wonders when it comes to your health. When you know which tea to drink, you can use tea like a natural medicine. For a little energy boost, brew up some green or black tea. Sip lavender tea to calm your nerves. Lemongrass tea can help when you feel a little blue. Or try chamomile to cure insomnia and relax at the end of the day. 

Different herbal teas can be used for wellbeing.

Yoga Mat

Exercise and physical activity do wonders for your wellbeing. Not only does it keep your body strong, it may also help you sleep better, reduce stress, and to keep your immune system strong, according to research from the National Institute on Aging.

You don’t need expensive equipment to stay active. Think of a simple yoga mat as your gym space. With a yoga mat, you can practice meditation or enjoy a yoga session to build strength and flexibility. Bring it to a class or enjoy yoga at-home or at your local park. You can also use your mat for strength training, like pushups and crunches. After all your hard work, make time for a few minutes of savasana – a moment of quiet meditation –  laying on your back.

Yoga is good for wellness.

Say Affirmations

Affirmations are positive statements. When you repeat affirmations, you help transform negative thoughts into positive ones. Think of a few go-to affirmations that you can repeat them out loud whenever you notice self-doubt. Some examples include: “I feel safe and grounded”, “I flow with inspiration and creativity”, or “I am surrounded by love”. 

Positive affirmations are good for wellness.

That Go-To Friend

A friend is always just a phone call away. If you feel overwhelmed, sometimes you just need to talk to someone to help gain perspective. Keeping pain inside only makes things worse according to Psychology Today. So make a habit of having that go-to friend to lean on. Sharing your thoughts with a person you trust will help work through problems, instead of keeping them bottled up.

Everyone needs a go-to friend,
