“...LIKE DOROTHY IN THE WIZARD OF OZ, YOU HAVE WHAT YOU NEED ALREADY INSIDE YOU.”
Marilyn Stein | Owner, MGS Consulting What is your definition of Wellness? Wellness is having a balanced relationship with our body, mind, and spirit. It is sense of satisfaction in knowing we can manage today with wisdom and grace. How do you make Lancaster and individuals in our community better? I offer understanding through education and conversation. I want everyone to understand that wellness and recovery is possible and that it does happen. I offer evidence based and easily understood information about recovery, substance use disorders, and living our best lives with the intent of reducing stigma. Stigma is a barrier that keeps individuals from seeking help. It negatively impacts families and our community. What we don’t discuss lives in the shadows, becoming more frightening. Conversation and education make it less frightening. 717.413.8473 c mgsconsulting.net
What do you feel is important for everyone to keep in mind this year? It seems the only thing certain about the past year is uncertainty, which is disruptive. Being attentive and aware of how you are feeling soothes the disruption because awareness, sort of like a GPS, offers guidance when you may not know which way to turn next. With awareness we can turn inward and recalculate. And a little extra self compassion helps a lot too. I want to remind everyone that, like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, they have what they need already within themselves. What’s one step our readers could take towards wellness as it relates to your business? To dedicate a small bite of time and attention daily to your own wellness is not a luxury. It is a necessity. The ABC’s of wellness, awareness, balance, and connection matter. Offering education, guidance, and support to individuals, organizations, and teams.
