What are wellness activities and how do they help me?
This is actually a frequently asked question and to be honest, the answers are different for everybody. As no two people are the same, it’s normal for us to achieve wellness in different ways. For some, the idea of achieving wellness looks like being physically fit, and for others it may look like having strong connections with friends or reaching a new level of relaxation and tranquillity.
Wellness can often be a combination of physical, spiritual, social and emotional dimensions of wellbeing. These dimensions can carry a different level of importance and need depending on each individual. Through achieving wellness, we are able to improve our overall level of wellbeing which in turn, has a direct effect on our everyday actions and emotions.
You may be asking what kind of wellness activities The Christina Ghobadi Foundation can offer through their wellness grants. The Foundation supports a growing number of wellness activities that are spread across all dimensions of health. Particular activities that have been popular amongst past recipients include:
- Yoga classes
