On social media, every scroll offers us up a new way to look after ourselves. At any given hour, there is a live yoga class, sound therapy, breath-work, meditation, EFT and a whole host of other off-shoots from eastern philosophy. But how do you choose the right healing therapy?
Each time you are on social media, there is another type of class to do, another book to read, another self-care subscription box to buy. However, our mental health is still suffering and if anything, has been exacerbated as a result of the pandemic.
So, if we have so much access to so many of these great tools that will help our mental well being, which healing therapy do you choose to help manage stress and anxiety, why are we still struggling?
Be kind and do what you can manage. Do not fall victim to elitist healers and always trust your intuition (feel it literally in your body). Not just your head. Be open to the experiences for the most benefit and if nothing feels right, you can always walk in nature. It works just as well, you have to set the intention for why you’re doing it to have the most effect on you.
