Have you ever started a health and wellness kick, only to reroute to the closest fast-food drive-through after a long day of work? Or poured yourself a glass of wine one week into your dry January New Year’s resolution after a relationship setback?
If that loss of motivation and willpower feels familiar, you’ve probably experienced the shame and guilt that comes from not getting the results you imagined. So, you know that shame and guilt aren’t great motivators—in fact, they usually make it even harder to accept and love your whole self during your wellness journey!
How does mindset factor into your physical health?
The key to health and healing isn’t gaining more information on what to do. Most of us know exactly what to do.
The problem is that our mindsets haven’t come alongside our “mind knowledge” to usher in that change. The energy behind our wish of becoming healthier is too attached on the desired result, instead of the daily practice of becoming the person you want to be.
Instead of imagining that goal number on the scale or crossing the finish line of that half marathon, first go inwards. Imagine what tangible, daily intentions would look like for the person you want to become. How would they talk to themselves? How would they feel? What would their wishes be?
Maybe they’d say...
My mind is at peace and my body is healthy. I wish for a powerful body-mind connection.
Abundance and health flow my way. I wish for a daily meditation practice.
Well-being surrounds me in everything I do. I wish for a healthy body through exercise.
Remember, becoming healthy or maintaining our wellness includes our thoughts. The shame of not doing things perfectly (at least, compared to what we see on social media) can make us feel like a victim.
But we are powerful beyond measure. Our bodies have innate healing properties! There is an inner light that shines so brightly within you, whether you can see it in this moment or not.

These gemstones for health can help you stay focused on your wish and healthy intentions for wellness.
Amethyst is known for its connection to the mind. With the ability to clear negative thoughts, amethyst can restore your sense of calm and give you clear access to your ideas, beliefs, and intuition. The ancient Greeks wore amethyst because of their belief that it would prevent intoxication!
Black onyx is a protective stone, guarding you against negative energy and giving you strength in times of stress. Black onyx helps develop emotional and physical strength in times of turmoil. This stone was an important symbol for Native Americans and Peruvians.
Rose quartz is known as the love stone. It opens your heart to all kinds of love - romantic, familial, collegial, and most importantly, love of self. It also helps with forgiveness, which is crucial in love (and in life). Egyptians wore Rose quartz to prevent signs of aging.
Tourmaline Quartz is a powerful combination of both Tourmaline and Clear Quartz. When melded together, the Clear Quartz amplifies the grounding and healing nature of the Tourmaline, known for neutralizing toxic and distracting energies in our environment. When these stones are together, you can clear what no longer serves you and ground yourself in the present moment.
