Taking time for yourself and focusing on wellness is something many people struggle with. Doesn’t it seem like there is always an infinite to-do list looming over your head that squashes any time to breathe or exercise? When my Apple Watch’s periodical “Take a minute to breathe” alert chimes away on my wrist, I yell at it that I don’t have time to breathe. (Giggle if you want, but it’s true!) But it is so important to take time to breathe in order to keep wellness and positivity in check.
When you focus on wellness, you are better able to channel creativity and be successful in the workplace and at home. If you are having trouble taking the time to care for your wellness, try putting yourself in an environment where focusing on wellness is the only option. The Positivity Charge, a wellness retreat in Philadelphia, PA, is an event dedicated to giving you this option.
The experts at this wellness retreat will teach you how to incorporate wellness practices into your life. They want you to leave the event with the tools you need in order to make wellness and positivity a priority in your life and be the most successful, creative version of yourself.
Cofounders Dr. Rubina Tahir and Parisha Smith want people to rebuild their minds and bodies and embrace positivity. Dr. Tahir is a Board Certified Chiropractor and host of the RX segment of My New Philly, a Philadelphia news show. Parisha Smith is the food producer for My New Philly. (Learn more about their work on the news show here.)
The Positivity Charge will focus on teaching attendees ways to build the mind-body connection, find foods that fuel, and make your body work for you.
Do you (like me) have the failed aspiration of practicing yoga on a regular basis? Early in the event, you will practice some yoga to foster positive mindfulness. Become flexible in both mind and body to get those creative juices flowing. Learn how to incorporate yoga into your routine so that your creativity and positivity never wanes.
