Subject: Seeking advice on incorporating Enneagram types into a personal health & wellness routine? 💪✨ Hello everyone! I've been learning about the Enneagram system and I'm intrigued by the idea of using it to develop a more personalized approach to maintaining my health and wellness. Specifically, I'm wondering if anyone has successfully integrated their Enneagram type into their nutritional habits, fitness regimen, mental health practices, or other wellness routines? How does your Enneagram type influence your approach to staying healthy? For instance, if you’re a Type Five (the investigator), have you found ways to feed your need for knowledge and understanding in the realm of physical health or mental wellbeing? Or, as a Type Two (the helper), how do you make sure you’re not forgetting to take care of your own health while caring for others? I'm really interested in any tips or insights you can share, regardless of what type you are! I appreciate any guidance to help me improve my health in a way that aligns with my unique Enneagram identity.💫 Thank you! 😊

Hey there! 🙋‍♀️ Your idea of integrating Enneagram types into personal health and wellness habits is an awesome one. 👍🌟 I'm a Type Two (the helper) and I find that I'm naturally inclined to put others' needs first. This can often lead to neglecting my own health. 🌡️😓 A few things that have helped me are setting firm boundaries for my personal time, which includes both physical exercise & mental relaxation, incorporating short self-care rituals into my routine, and reminding myself that taking care of me, enables me to take care of others better.🏋️‍♀️🧘‍♀️✨ Also, I keep a gratitude journal 📔☺️ where I note down all the things I'm thankful for - it helps in balancing my mind and keeps my mental health in check. As for physical health, I’ve found that classes (like yoga or spin) are really helpful. It allows me to feel like I’m nurturing a community... but within the framework of also prioritizing my own health. Good luck with your journey! Remember, each Enneagram type is unique, so listen to your body, your mind, and your needs. Incorporate habits that feel like a natural extension of who you are. 🙌💕 Take care and stay healthy! 🍀🌈
