Unlocking Mental Wellness: How to Stay in Tune with Your Health

The importance of mental health extends beyond Mental Health Awareness Month and is more pronounced than ever. Despite growing awareness, challenges are prevalent for many. Our esteemed Executive Vice President, Dawn Spann, stresses the importance of tuning into your emotional, physical, and spiritual being as the first step toward wellness.”It’s important to listen and be kind to yourself,” she said. “Always remember, it’s okay not to be okay.” 

At Release Well-Being Center, we encourage everyone to nurture their minds and make space for tranquility and positivity. Moving beyond self-care, we share how you can use holistic wellness experiences to mend.

Move Beyond Self Care: Incorporate Wellness Into Daily Routines

Each year, millions of people face the silent struggles of mental health conditions. This month is a powerful reminder that mental health is just as important as physical health and deserves our attention, care, and resources. We can foster a more understanding and compassionate community by encouraging open dialogues and ensuring everyone feels seen, heard, and supported on their journey to wellness.

Cintia, a Massage Therapist at Release Westborough, supports her mental well-being through diet and exercise. “I embrace a plant-based diet and nourish my body with supportive foods,” she said. “Before my work day begins, I do yoga, cycling, and powerlates classes at Release Westborough to energize myself.” Physical activity stimulates the release of neurotransmitters such as endorphins, serotonin, and dopamine–primary hormones that promote happiness and reduce feelings of anxiety and depression. Cintia sheds light on the holistic benefits of regular spa treatments. Weekly massages support muscle relaxation, lymphatic circulation, and stress relief to foster immunity when she needs it most.

Release Integrative Health Practitioner Lorenzo Lugo believes there’s power in having community and incorporating wellness into your daily routine. “We can’t always fix the bad things that happen to us, but we can always add more good things–we should never suffer alone,” he said. “Release the negative emotions to make space for the good ones.”

Establishing and nurturing social connections is essential for sustaining mental well-being. Wellness classes and group offerings can help cultivate new, meaningful relationships during challenging times. In addition to reaching out to a loved one or seeking professional help to alleviate stressors, you can amplify your support network by joining a larger community. Participate in group activities like fitness classes, yoga, or meditation sessions. Our Release community fosters a sense of belonging, including world-class instructors, friendly members, and dedicated staff. Whether wellness guidance or heartfelt camaraderie, we provide a safe space for guidance and healing.

Recognize the strength in seeking help—it’s a courageous step towards reclaiming your inner peace and resilience.
