The world is filled with weird and wonderful things from different peoples, cultures and walks of life waiting to be discovered and experienced. Every lifestyle should have an element of wellness to it for some well-deserved self-love amidst the chaos around you, particularly for those who live and work where nothing ever seems to stop moving. So we've scoured different countries to find habits we can start for a more wellness-driven life.
Mindfulness is a concept most familiar to Buddhists. Buddhism's teachings remind us to be more mindful of our surroundings and the beings that are around us, living or otherwise, as well as what we consume. But mindful eating is not only done by Buddhists but also by Jews as a way to be more aware of the food we put into our bodies, and what we gain from it. This creates a greater appreciation for food and you are unlikely to overeat or waste food, making it a healthy and sustainable practice.
Laughter is said to be the best medicine. So why not try laughter yoga? It's a concept that fuses laughing with breathing exercises that promote better oxygen circulation to the body and brain, as well as strengthen your immunity. If you don’t have time to actually do yoga, you can intentionally incorporate more laughter into your life by spending time with friends who make you laugh or going to comedy clubs.
