EXERCISE 27.11 Mandala for Personal Health: Your
Holistic Stress-Management Strategy
This mandala exercise invites you to use this symbol of wholeness as both a reminder of your true self and a compass to help get you there, should you lose your way in the course of daily events and circumstances that tend to cloud your vision and perspective. Using the mandala below, first write your name in the center. Next, keeping in mind that many activities cross the lines between these quadrants, write in each respective quadrant your ideas, skills and techniques, exercises, and habits that allow you to achieve inner peace through the integration, balance, and harmony of mind, body, spirit, and emo- tions. For example, let’s take the quadrant for physical well-being. You might consider writing down ideas for your personal exercise program, new or improved eating habits, sleep habits, and perhaps even acupuncture and a massage. List those things that you ei- ther currently do or wish to include in your life routine. When you finish, place the man- dala where you can see it regularly to serve as a reminder to guide you to your optimal health potential. You may also consider doing a larger version by cutting out color photo- graphs and words from magazines to bring this mandala to a whole new level.
