Head to Heal Project
The World Health Organisation defines wellbeing as “the state in which an individual realises his or her own abilities, can cope with normal stresses of life, can work productively and is able to make a contribution to his or her community”.
As we live in an era of continuous change, we attempt to cope with the ever-changing dynamics that in the process subjects us to much stress that prevails in our body and mind. Overtime, as these stresses assimilate and accumulate, we find ourselves falling susceptible to the effects of an impaired wellbeing that manifests in various forms of mental and physical conditions that we struggle to come to terms with.
Given the burgeoning statistics in the number of afflicted individuals and the increasing precedence given to mental wellness within the Singapore landscape, NuLife decided to embark on the Head to Heal initiative that centers on equipping individuals with life skills that buffers them against the effects of the stresses they face in today’s fast paced world.
The Head to Heal initiative is a wellness program designed by a physiotherapist and it aims to stimulate the mind, strengthen the body and rejuvenate the spirit. Through a series of modules, the program targets to beat chronic tension through the advocation of simple breathing and body awareness techniques.
Let us pave a healthy way to approach life challenges in a proactive and peaceful way and work together to advocate wellness in the community. Learning these life skills and sharing them with our loved ones is the best gift we can give to them.
There are a myriad of breathing and body awareness techniques that we can cultivate with proper practice and guidance. As a kickstart, we would like to share one such example that was conceived through the Head to Heal Initiative. This simple and effective exercise brings attention to the different breathing spots present in our body system and how these spots can be utilised to refresh our body and mind for the day.
The Head to Heal initiative will endeavour to bolster the counselling support that the organisation is providing to those in need. Our beneficiaries who undergo counselling will be given the opportunity to learn these techniques from our team of counsellors who have been well equipped. In the form of emotional support and self-guidance, we hope those who reach out to us in times of adversities will gain the needed clarity that would enable them to restore their displaced well-being.
