As you may have read in our previous issue, now is the time to Live Your Wellest and Greater Palm Springs has just what you need.
Our valley is the ultimate health and wellness destination and we are lucky to live here! Certainly, the area boasts other exceptional attributes for which we are known but the current focus is on the many opportunities to help you, and those visiting our beautiful desert, become the happiest, healthiest, truest – wellest – version of yourself.
What does this mean?
A unique answer lies within each of us. An adrenaline seeker might live their wellest while biking through a stunning mountain-lined landscape. Those that prefer calmness might find their wellest experience during a sound bath in a hot spring or a Reiki crystal healing session.
And there is no better time to do those things you’ve talked about for years – try a new adventure or challenging exercise; meditate or simply change your perspective; replace those habits that don’t serve you well with those that do.
When you wake up in the morning feeling great inside and out with a deep solace in your soul that today – and every day – will bring you peace, happiness, laughter and love, you are living your wellest.
As I’ve said before, this idealistic sense of being may seem far out of reach for some, but it’s really not. How do you get there? You try new things, find your passion and give it practice and patience. Then, as your body, mind and spirit begin to thrive in this new sense of being, you will soar.
Where do you start?
The Greater Palm Springs Convention and Visitors Bureau has created a comprehensive resource at LiveYourWellest.com. Learn what’s happening locally, find discounts and deals on wellness offerings, even search ‘itineraries’ for new explorations. Determine your interests and browse the nine pillars of wellness: outdoor adventure, natural medicine, mindfulness and meditation, nutrition, beauty, fitness and sports, spas and mineral springs, medical tourism, and community and contribution.
And if you’re looking for qualified professionals to help start you on your journey – a coach, trainer, doctor, instructor, studio, spa, support group, chef, store, or inspirational event – all you have to do is turn the page.
These businesses thrive because many of us are already taking steps toward living our wellest, and it feels great! Just remember, it’s not a sprint, fad or phase; it’s a lifestyle of healthier choices to feed your mind, body, and spirit.
Have fun and we’ll see you along the way!
