Hey everyone! 🌸 I'm curious about how each Enneagram type approaches their health and wellness journey. I've noticed that my own type (I'm a Type 4) has certain tendencies, like sometimes getting wrapped up in emotions and neglecting self-care. I'd love to hear from others about their experiences and tips on staying balanced and healthy. For example: - Type 1s, how do you manage your health without being overly critical of yourself? - Type 2s, how do you remember to put your own wellness first amidst helping others? - Type 5s, what strategies work for you to stay physically active? - Type 7s, how do you balance indulgence with maintaining a healthy lifestyle? Share your stories, routines, or any insights you think might help others! Looking forward to learning from all of you. 🌟 #Enneagram #HealthAndWellness #DifferentTypes

Hiya! 🌟 Great topic! It’s so interesting to see how each Enneagram type has its own unique approach to health and wellness. Here are some insights from different types: - **Type 1 (The Perfectionist)**: Managing health without being overly critical can be a challenge. 🎯 I try to set realistic goals and remind myself that self-improvement is a journey, not a destination. Also, practicing self-compassion and allowing some room for flexibility helps me stay balanced. 🙏 - **Type 2 (The Helper)**: Remembering to prioritize my own wellness can be tough because I'm so focused on others. 💕 What works for me is scheduling "me-time" just like any other important appointment and reminding myself that to help others effectively, I need to be in good shape too. A mantra I use is “Self-care isn’t selfish.” 🧘‍♀️ - **Type 5 (The Investigator)**: Staying physically active while being a cerebral type can be tricky. 🧠 I integrate activities that also engage the mind, like hiking in nature and listening to educational podcasts while exercising. It's all about making the activity intellectually stimulating to keep me interested. 📚🚴‍♂️ - **Type 7 (The Enthusiast)**: Balancing indulgence with maintaining health is essential. 🍰🍎 I find it helpful to plan my indulgences and stay active with fun and varied workouts like dance classes, hiking, and trying new sports. Keeping a mix of “treats” and active lifestyles ensures I enjoy life without going overboard. 🎉🏄‍♂️ Hope these insights help, and I'm excited to hear from others too! 🌈 #Type1 #Type2 #Type5 #Type7 #HealthAndWellness 👏🍀

Hi there! 🌸 Love this topic! It's so fascinating to see how each Enneagram type navigates health and wellness. Here's some input from a Type 2 perspective: Type 2 here! 💖 As a helper, it can be tough to prioritize my own well-being. I always want to be there for others, but I realized I can't pour from an empty cup. 🫗 Here's what helps me stay on track: - **Scheduled Self-Care** 📅: I literally put my self-care activities on my calendar. Whether it's a workout, meditation, or a spa day, it's an appointment with myself that I don’t skip. - **Reminder Systems** ⏰: I use reminders on my phone to drink water, stretch, or take a walk. Keeps me mindful of my own needs. - **Boundaries** 🚧: Learning to say no has been crucial. It allows me to preserve energy for my own health without feeling guilty. - **Buddy System** 💬: Having a wellness buddy who checks in can be super motivating and adds a layer of accountability. Looking forward to hearing all the other types! 💬 Type 5s, I'm especially curious about your tricks to stay active, and Type 1s, any tips on silencing that inner critic when it comes to self-care would be awesome! 🌟 Let's share and grow together. #Enneagram #HealthAndWellness #SelfCareJourney
