This #B2Be and MidtownKing https://www.instagram.com/midkingttv/ got their #tickets! Sooo excited for this #Empowering #Inspiring #CommuniEATS event by Rapha Wellness https://g.page/raphawellnesscenter
Uhhh...can you say #EXCITED! Well, I am for this is my FIRST WELLNESS FESTIVAL & also the FIRST WELLNESS FESTIVAL of its kind in Bayonne, NJ! How awesome it that!
Now, I can't speak for you unique; INSPIRING AF B2Bes!
But for me, "WELLNESS"+"FESTIVAL" didn't seem to go hand and hand.
I wanted so much to okay enough to be feel well. Strong, confident, energized, complete, possible! Instead, I felt sad, broken, terrified thanks to #triggers, anger, #fightmode and the worst part-#DEPRESSION
One of my favorite dictionary Merriam Webster https://www.merriam-webster.com/ defines wellness as:
nounwell·ness | \ ˈwel-nəs \
Definition of wellness
: the quality or state of being in good health especially as an actively sought goal//lifestyles that promote wellness
Obviously, for someone with severe depression; wholeness, healthiness and heartiness do not (Mmmm...#donut) mesh well or make much sense when all you wanna do is sleep the pain away and over/under eat because the pain is literally #eating away at you from within.
So all healthy #MOVEMENT and #DIET kind of go out the window UNTIL you realize the UNDENIABLE #BENEFITS of #Wellness. And realize, wellness is for EVERYONE! Because it truly is in everyone. Whether: YOUNG, OLD, SICK (whether physical, mental, neural, all above)-if you are a woman, man; whatever you associate and define yourself has, no matter religion, demographic, history, finances and past...WELLNESS is for all of us!
Twenty-two years later, I am still dealing with the four henchmen of my complex #PTSD. Luckily with music and growing up becoming a songwriter who can pour my pain, fears, food cravings and joy into songs whilst #feastingReleasingRepeating and of course #sAnging my #BUNS off: I have discovered my 4 angels( #Music #audacity #healing #Joy) to combat those nasty ol' henchmen. EAT THEM ALIVE I say!!!
Now, my angels, love and a whole #Costco size armoury of many wonderful #SelfHelp #tools #nuggets and #armour in staying #Hungry #Filled and #INSPIRED in life despite my extreme/severe #MoodDisorder have 100% become a part of my wellness journey.
It's something you can start immediately! Get up and do a quick stretch, turn up the radio and #DANCE! Or even more easy; TAKE A DEEP BREATH in and EXHALE! Attend a fun event with a friend, partner or neighbor or attack a cup...or gallon of water #HYDRATE
*Not all have access to clean water...if interested babes (https://thewaterproject.org/)
You reap the benefits immediately! And the more you do it, the better you feel; the more resilient you can become and a more fulfilling life is yours.
So, to me-that sounds just as amazing as a festival where we get to party with music and more-so just makes sense to combine the two.
Like a #burger (#vegan burger #YUM) with #fries, #peanutbutter and jelly and my personal favorite #redwine and #darkchocolate (chocolate and #milk for the #kids of course:-D.
So best #believe, this babe is excited! And you can be too! >>>
