Dear Wellness Seekers,
Spanista loves NYTimes Review,“Hit the Reset Button In Your Brain” by Daniel J. Levitin because it struck a chord. I especially zeroed in on these wellness comments, “Taking breaks is biologically restorative”. His closing remarks in the piece state, “If we could train ourselves to take regular vacations without work – and to set aside time for naps and contemplation, we will be in a more powerful position to start solving some of the world’s big problems. And to be happier and well rested while we are doing it.”
I pondered this over my brekky of Allegro Earl Grey Tea and fresh blueberries. New brain science research by neuroscientists like that of his collaborator, Professor Vinod Menon is uncovering how our complex brain operates. This new insight fascinates me as a Spanista because there is so much we do not know about our brains until recently. With it comes welcome news for Wellness Seekers. Reading this opinion reinforces to me Spansita is founded on a solid philosophy. Really striking is discovering my personal experience when practicing Self Care Rituals aligns with his observations. Specifically the restorative effects that come from making a concerted effort to devote time to taking breaks, reflection time, play time and vacations.
Thanks to Mr. Levitin, I not only know how I will feel as a result of such purposeful personal time, I also know why I feel that way. It seems a natural extension is the Spansita Lifestyle of Self Care Reflections and Rituals along with Massage Therapy. What so you think of Mr. Levitin’s opinion – do you recognize the benefits from devoting time to activities he suggests?
To Your Journey To Joy,
Spanista Founder & Self Care Advocate
