Wellness & Wellbeing
To The Essential Life, wellness can mean a number of different things. It can mean living better through nature. It can mean living abundantly by cultivating a practice of Self Care & self love. It can mean nourishing yourself with healthy food. It can mean healing your mind, body & soul through Meditation, Reiki Healing, or any manner of alternative therapy. We believe all of these practices & lifestyle choices promote the spirit of wellness, & we believe through wellness we can live better.
With this mind, The Essential Life has made it our mission to spread the word about wellness & to share information surrounding living a more whole & happy life through wellness practices.
