Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices towards a healthy, happy and fulfilling life. It is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth. Regardless of your age, size, shape or apparent attractiveness, it is wellness that is the cornerstone of quality of life. It is wellness that controls how we look, feel, relate with others and succeed in life and work.
The most common and debilitating health problem in the world today is depression, according to several studies. Depression is often expressed in the form of insomnia, stress, poor nutrition, physical inactivity, social separation, brain fog, obesity, and heart disease.
Wellness encompasses these same areas of your life, including social connectedness, exercise, good nutrition, sleep and being mindful. Each area has a bearing on your physical and mental health. Starting your wellness journey is a process of finding methods that contribute towards making you a happier, healthier human being. Start small with little changes in one of the areas. Make small goals. For example, you can limit the amount of sugar you take in on a daily basis or start going on short walks if you do not already have an exercise regime in place. Take it one day at a time and you will quickly feel the benefits of your small, positive changes to your lifestyle. Then add a few changes once those have become a habit.
Here’s to your health & wellness 😊
