AWAKEN AND TRANSFORM THROUGH OUR BALANCED WELLNESS EXPERIENCES.
Physical: Without a solid fountain of health and fitness, an individual risks missing out on so many memorable experiences. TIW wants to help you reach and maintain a premium level of physical well-being that allows you to live your best life.
Nutritional: Educate yourself on the importance of eating clean for fueling your body, as well as lowering the risk of disease.
Spiritual: Build a foundation of how to live well by living right; moral decision-making, values, setting standards and identifying your purpose/meaning in life.
Emotional: A key component of overall wellness that is often misunderstood and not addressed properly. Better understand coping effectively and maintaining a healthy emotional state through life’s challenges.
Social/Community: Studies on longevity around the world have identified "Blue Zones" where people have some of the world's longest lifespans. One of the surprise findings has been the importance of deep social networks, strong community ties and long lasting friendships. TIW embraces these ideas and we incorporate relationship building concepts in all our events and experiences.
Financial: Apply basic principles to everyday financial decisions and future planning.
Intellectual: At TIW, it is our belief that a person should never stop learning. Growth and enlightenment continues throughout one's life. However, applying that acquired knowledge is a choice.
Environmental: There is no denying that humans impact the environment in negative ways every single day. TIW wants to bring awareness to this problem and work with groups to make positive changes to land, water and air we all share.
“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.”
— Henry David Thoreau.
Living a balanced life in today's world can be challenging.
We are pushed and pulled in so many directions; family and work, friends and responsibilities, being there for others and taking care of ourselves. We all need to realize our lives are moving rapidly by. That is why it is imperative to take the time, even if it's just a few minutes, to center ourselves daily and revel in the moments and the world around us. Even allow ourselves to wonder in those moments like the children we use to be.
You can work and pay the bills, take care of the kids, dutifully be there for others, but please take the time to stop long enough to breathe, to appreciate, to live! It's a practice that when you are living it, you will know it and your life will be better for it.
“In a world of algorithms, hashtags and followers, know the true importance of human connection.”
Want to be happy in life?
Robert Waldinger, current director of a 75 year study by Harvard University on *What Makes Us Happy* states:
"The clearest measure that we get from our study is Good Relationships keep us happier and healthier," and notice he said not just happier but also healthier! It's actually the number one indicator according to the Harvard study. Further data collected in Blue Zones around the world (areas where researchers study why people live longer in these places) also shows that positive relationships are directly related to health and longevity. Isn't it interesting that science is finally starting to prove conclusively what has always been known by people who have lived the fullest lives.
In the world today technology allows us to be net-connected to anyone, anywhere - however that is not a substitute for real "face to face" human connection. The need for personal, in-the-moment relationships is possibly more critical than ever before. Embrace, develop and maintain true relationships in life; they will enrich your life in ways you can't even image.
“Mark Twain wrote “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness” and the original conservationist John Muir said, “In every walk with nature one receives far more than they seek.”
Our ancestors could not just stay inside and hang out as so many people do today.
They had to venture forth daily just to interact with the the world, there was no screen to bring it indoors. All too often we are missing that direct connection to the outdoors, as well as, making it a point to visit and explore new places. There are so many positive reasons to do both.
Many recent studies have proven that living close to nature and spending time outside has significant and wide-ranging health benefits. In fact, one well-funded and wide-reaching study found that regular exposure to green areas reduces the risk of type II diabetes, cardiovascular disease, premature death, stress and high blood pressure. Traveling offers many of the same benefits, plus it disconnects you from the routine of your daily life. Travel also opens your mind to new cultures, makes you more worldly, can improve your mental health and creates the most amazing lifetime memories.
“A healthy outside, starts from the inside.”
— Robert Urich.
