This is the first blog in a series on wellness. Upcoming entries will focus on: diet, fitness, emotions, and your home environment. You are encouraged to assess behaviors related to each area and decide if there are any you’d like to change. Or, are there new practices you’d like to start?
What is wellness? The definition is, the quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as a result of a deliberate effort. Or, an approach to health care that emphasizes preventing illness and prolonging life, as opposed to emphasizing treating diseases.
First and most important, KNOW YOUR BODY. In order to promote wellness you must be aware of your current state of health. Where you are starting from?
Make a list of:
Review your list and pick an area you’d like to work on. Write down a goal you’d like to achieve in that area.
Have you tried to implement lifestyle changes and faced struggles and challenges? Me too! It can be very difficult.
Once you decide on a goal, you'll need to implement strategies and methods to help you achieve it.
Start by developing a plan.
Once you have a goal established, track your progress.
Any behavior becomes automatic over time with enough repetition. I encourage you to make a conscious decision to take control of your health. Think about why you want to. To have the best chance of being successful, you’ve got to know why you want something. The power of your why is what will help you get through the tough spots and keep you focused on the end result.
Enjoy life, choose happiness, and be your best every day!
