Countdown to 2023: Take a Break

There’s no better time than the winter solstice to sit back, take a breather, and check in with yourself. Enjoy some of the WIMN team’s resources to wind down and start healthy habits year-round.

  1. If you’re on social media, fill it with healthy inspiration.
    The Creative Independent is one example of an account that can always bring you back to center, even in the middle of a doom-scroll.

  2. Move your body, however is best for your body.
    Myki shares her favorite way – “Going to the ocean, and/or practicing Tai Chi. Doubly good if I can practice Tai Chi on the beach! To date, I prefer going to Capitola, Ca because I can drive there and back in a day. However, if time and money were no issue, I would be on Maui, or the Big Island.”
  3.  Get into nature.
    Lucky Lamond’s favorite resource for this is the AllTrails app. Bonus points if you sing as you hike, or trek a travel guitar to the top of a mountain to bring some music into the outdoors.Homepage for the app AllTrails; a woman smiles, and a man mountainbikes.
  4. Practice your instrument.
    Hopefully it’s old news by now, but there’s no end to how incredible playing an instrument is for your health. Pick up the nearest instrument and play for a boost of wellness.
