    Wally and I on our way to Costa Rica to enjoy a week of celebration and relaxation!

    I’m writing from Costa Rica today on our first day of an enchanted trip that Wally worked hard to earn.  I give him much of the credit because it is through his Mental Wellness Academy that we’ve been able to help many people improve their mental wellness.  After his traumatic experiences as a veteran, Wally’s quest to find alternative and natural solutions to manage and prevent stress, anxiety, depression  and even suicide, got him to partner with Amare Global, The Mental Wellness Company. 

     Amare Global is positioned to cause a revolution in the area of mental wellness.  We’ve seen, just in the past year, so many known people opened up about their struggle with these type of conditions.  You’ll recognize names like Oprah, Michael Phelps, Lady Gaga, Prince Williams, Duane “The Rock” Johnson, even younger personalities like singer Zendaya that have publicly shared their need to manage their mental health and who can forget people like Robin Williams, and others that have committed suicide because they simply didn’t know of other solutions to feel better.

     Up until recently, mental conditions have been neglected by many companies, but little by little, more and more employers are looking to provide options to their employees as they realize, mentally healthier employees equal an increase in production and a positive environment for everyone.  Here are some ideas to manage these conditions:

    ·      Mindfulness sessions: Whether you practice meditation, relaxation or mind breaks, be consistent and do it often!

    ·      Active Lifestyle: Have a hobby! It’s okay to work hard and accomplish a lot but do things you enjoy and are passionate about. Fill in your extra time with physical activities like swimming, cycling, running, walking, dancing, exercising or any other physical activity.  Reading, memorizing games, Sudoku, word scrabble or puzzles help to exercise your brain, which is just as important as your physical health.

    ·      Nutrition: Be mindful of what you put in your body.  Reset your body at least once a year (Amare Global’s Reboot is an excellent choice and only 3 days long). Eat lots of greens, legumes and low sugary fruit.

    ·      Supplement: No matter how healthy your diet is, adding quality supplements will ensure you’re getting all the nutrients you need to feel, look and be at your optimum health.  Amare’s B3 is one of the most wholesome programs we’ve found in the market and it targets your body, your brain and your biome.

     “I urgently need a mindfulness and breathwork session this week on Tuesday for a group of  teachers at Steinmetz H.S.” read the text sent to me just a few days before “Tuesday”.  I called immediately and started asking lots of questions to understand the need and put together a proposal.  It ended up being a 15-minute session and due to other commitments, we had to push it to Thursday that same week to accommodate to Wally’s schedule.  We’re glad to partner with organizations that understand the importance of managing stress, anxiety and depression and prevent suicide. 

    My mom would say that one of the most important things to help with any of these issues is to give priority to your spiritual life and I completely agree with her.  Therefore, I make it the top item on my list.  If you’re reading this blog and want to be part of our community of leaders helping others and spreading the word, reach out.  Let’s do more together!
