Wellness Domain: Physical
|Right Brain Activity
|Create a self-portrait without using the form of a body or face. For example, use oil pastels or watercolor (or any other medium) and make marks on paper that represent you. Maybe it is a certain color or word(s) or texture. Practice sitting with this portrait for 5 minutes holding the image in loving kindness. What arises?
|Left Brain Activity
|Write a specific, and attainable, goal for your physical health this week. For example, eat whole unrefined foods and greens 2 days this week. Or, exercise for 30 minutes 3x this week and get at least 6 hours of continuous sleep per night this week. Inform someone of your goal and check in with them at the end of the week to share how you did.
