The 10 Pillars of OmniLife
OmniLife aims to empower you with the tools you need to lead a life of purpose. Furthermore, the right attitude and the mind-body connection has a pivotal role to play in this journey. True wellness comes from a series of small, daily steps done with mindfulness as opposed to drastic measures or shortcuts. We come from a belief that it is possible for you to take your wellbeing into your own hands.
We believe in the theory of gestalt, in that, the whole is always greater than the sum of its parts. These 10 Pillars together serve as guiding principles on how to live a full life. Working on each of these with full alignment of heart, mind and body will see you make real and lasting changes in your lives.
Adjusting the lens through which you feel, perceive and experience the world.
For us at OmniLife, Attitude is where it all begins. If you want to develop a new habit or change something about yourself, you have to take a step back and reflect on your attitude. Life will take us through its shares of ups and downs, its our attitude through this journey that defines us....
We have found that the single most transforming attitude for growth, healing, resilience, and recovery is 'gratitude'. Only when you are grateful and mindful of what you have are you able to truly embrace what the future has in store. Another theme that we explore quite often is that of compassion- whether it is giving back to the society, volunteering or simply showing kindness to a stranger you have just met, compassion plays a pivotal role in improving our lives and enhancing our overall wellbeing. Furthermore, we have found that resilience is also a key determinant that helps some people recover from stressful situations and adversities. At OmniLife, our practitioners designed workshops help you increase your resilience and take on life's many challenges with confidence.
Escaping the humdrum of daily life to pause, reflect and find calm.
We understand that it is not possible nor is it practical to aim to obliterate stress from our lives completely but what we can do is equip ourselves with the tools to handle our stresses better.
... Everyone, regardless of where they are in their lives, looks to find a way to de-stress. This can be different for different people. Some people might choose to play golf or tennis twice a week, while others decompress by spending time with their friends over the weekend and some might enjoy spending time with their pets or camping outdoors. For some of us, a combination of yoga classes and weekly sessions at therapy might work well. People need to reflect on what makes them feel noticeably less stressed and more at ease and then encourage them to do more of that as often as they can.
Fostering harmony within your community and surroundings.
It is really important for us to live in a healthy environment at home and in the workplace and to take daily measures to live in a cleaner environment as well.
... We have two homes: nature and our bodies, and it is therefore important to take care of both. Our ecosystem comprises not only of our home and work environments but is also a broad term that encapsulates the environment at large with pollution, toxins, inclement weather and radiation. Just like plants, we too thrive in a happy environment full of water and sunlight, and face the risk of withering in hostile environments.
Eating right for healing, nourishment, and sustenance.
We believe that food is an offering, a celebration and medicine, and that food cooked and eaten with love will nourish and heal.
Just what type of food is good for your body constitution? Weight loss is important but it should be an outcome of nutrition management. Book an online session with Avni Kaul, our nutrition expert to get a personalized nutrition plan for you....
Having enough to ensure a comfortable life and to pursue things that are truly meaningful to you.
There is a need in society to revisit our relationship with money. Money has become a point of stress for many of us, when it really should feel like a source of joy and abundance. So just how much is enough?...
Anil Chopra runs online financial wellbeing sessions where he helps you redefine your relationship with money while helping you understand the core principles of personal wealth management.
Stressing about finances on an everyday basis can take a toll on our physical as well as our mental wellbeing. Hence, we must aim to mitigate some of these worries by allaying common fears such as financial insecurity. At OmniLife, our vetted experts will host workshops on budgeting and investing as well as providing one-on-one sessions on personal wealth management to help you manage your finances better.
Finding meaning in the things that make your life worthwhile.
While the Japanese term has no literal translation or definition, it is best understood as a 'life purpose' or 'reason for being'. You don't just wake up with it one day. Ikigai is all about the process. It is the slow unraveling of all the things that really matter and weeding out of the things that don't. So no matter where you are in your life, it may actually be worthwhile for you to start this journey in pursuit of meaning....
Through his workshops, Rajiv Bajaj gives you the framework and tools to help you discover your Ikigai.
In order to find our Ikigai, we have to focus on increasing the time we spend on activities that bring us to the state of ‘flow’. We experience what they call ‘flow’ when we find ourselves deeply interested in things that align with our mission. Often, you will find that people lose track of time. Do not rush the process. Your Ikigai, like all good things, will take time to develop. Instead, revel in the experience by peeling back the layers until you find something that gives your life true meaning. While some people claim that they are sure of their Ikigai, finding it could take months to years and better still, it can change with time.
Incorporating physical activity to stay fit at every age and stage.
Exercise can comprise movement in any form, including doing household chores or using every opportunity to walk around in office....
While some exercises can trigger happy hormones and prepare us for the day, some can be counter intuitive, raising cortisol levels and leaving you feeling worse instead of better. It is important for you to see how you feel before a workout and post your workout sessions. Our experts help you tailor an exercise regime which is suited to your needs.
Cultivating deep ties to enrich your life and emotional wellbeing.
As they say, "You are the sum total of the 5 people you have in your life” and we at OmniLife are ardent believers of the same. Healthy social connections tend to inspire and lift you up, however, our busy hyper-connected worlds have made us skimp on quality time with friends and family....
There is enough evidence to suggest that elderly people with a healthy social circle are less likely to die of a heart attack or stroke than those with a poor or no social life. We all know that loneliness can be a silent killer. Some people prefer isolating themselves to excel in life and to have a better social standing. However, loneliness directly impacts our mental wellbeing and having people to share our lives keeps us sane and healthy. Even with our interpersonal relationships, there are some of us who forgive and let go of the past often end up being healthier compared to those who hold grudges and bottle up negative emotions. We recommend date nights with your partner, a weekly family dinner with a strict no gadget policy and at least one evening per week wherein you relax and unwind with your friends in order to stay healthy.
Ensuring peaceful hours of rest to restore vitality (Ojas).
Recent studies suggest that the single most important and revolutionary thing we can tweak to enhance health, mental alertness, performance and beat an early onset of aging is sleep....
Most of us know how important sleep is for us, but we struggle to get enough or worse still are unable to get good quality sleep. We have to share more merits of good sleep hygiene and shake off the assumption that successful people sleep less or that skimping on sleep is the pathway to a happier, vibrant life. Also, rest is extremely crucial if you are looking to transform your body from the inside out.
Connecting with something larger than oneself to attain bliss.
Spirituality is a journey of the self where the ultimate goal is to bridge the gap between the inner world and the outer world so that the mind and heart are both calm and at peace....
While spirituality is understood in many different ways across countries and cultures, we understand it as an individual’s journey in the pursuit of truth and bliss. It is often misconstrued as being too deeply rooted in religion, which we feel is not necessary at all. Keeping in mind that everyone is different, spirituality too can mean different things to different people. For some, it might be deeply steeped in rituals and traditions like morning bead meditation or their SelfCare practices.
