As of recently, we’ve been asking the followers on our @takemetotheheights page on Instagram what Wellness looks like to them.
For some, it involved delving deep into their self-care practices like running a hot bath, or sewing a new collection, for others, that involved tapping in their self-awareness through mindful mediation/doing yoga.
With all of these thoughtful practices and then some, it’s caused us here at Takemetotheheights.com to ask: “Now that we covered the basics of self-care, have we truly tapped into ourselves?”
Upon entering the global pandemic of COVID-19, as well as witnessing the constant fight towards racial equality, all the while turning our homes into our offices/self-care spaces, oh and did we mention caring for our loved ones and most importantly ourselves?! (oh boy!) Wellness and healing have become more on the forefront as the new “norm” shifted.
This particular post for wellness is dedicated to those who struggle a bit in finding solace or are currently finding themselves wanting to tap more into wellness and overall well being.
With that being said, we’ve decided to recommend a few books/resource(s), that you can use at your own discretion on your quest towards wellness and healing.
