The Whirl of Wellness

Hold someone’s hand, gaze into their eyes
Go barefoot in nature, bask in sunrise

Choose a dance partner, go find your groove
Do tai chi or yoga, mindfully move

Share a massage, enjoy healing touch
Focus on one thing and don’t think too much

Make time for a hobby, play chess, fly a kite
Make use of your hands, draw, paint, sew or write

Help someone in need, donate to a cause
Play games, meditate, read stuff from bookstores

Turn off your screens, get a good sleep
De-clutter, spark joy, love what you keep

Dig around in a garden, pick up a guitar
Slip into a bathtub, sauna, or spa

Care for a pet, take up a sport
Go on vacation, make your home a resort

Lie in a hammock, release pent-up stress
Relax and do nothing, then do even less

Laugh out loud, share a joke, give someone a kiss
Say a prayer, chant a mantra, follow your bliss

Give it a whirl and make the ‘Whirl of Wellness’ your dance of life.
