Being

Wellbeing is a fascinating topic to me. We never learn about ‘steps’ to being well. That’s something I’d like to make a summary for.

To me, being well means feeling natural.

  • Natural environment
  • Natural rhythms
  • Natural activities

Environment

As I feel on my body and mind, living close to nature feels good. And here is some interesting stuff. Recent research on forest bathing shows that bacterias from soil boost immune system, phytoncides found in trees help humans relax and impact the growth of virus-fighting cells in our bodies. Hmm! I’ll read some more.

Rhythms

Change is constant. Do and rest. I believe that remote work is good for everyone. What’s common today is the opposite – busy mind and constant presence is encouraged. Where has a natural line between ‘do’ and ‘rest’ now gone?

Activities

To create means to live. Self-driven exploration of topics feels natural. Raising questions. Research. Ideation. Testing. Learnings. A natural flow of moving from the unknown to known.

Overall, what you do is what you are. Here I remember how basic habits – eating – shapes who we are. Literally, if you consider that we are made of trillions of bacterias who are in a constant flux. Recent research on gut links bacterias you get from food and your moods. And moods often link with our actions, where life itself is made of sequences of actions too. Definitely a topic to research more.
