It’s my very first post, and I’ve decided to discuss the topic of WELLNESS !
Wellness can mean different things to different people; what I describe wellness as here is my own perspective. For me, wellness is the integration of healthy components combined within ones lifestyle harmoniously, all of which in combination should cover the three main aspects of wellness: the mind, the body, and the soul. Wellness isn’t just about eating well, or working out, or seeking knowledge, or being mindful and positive. It’s all of those things; it’s taking care of yourself emotionally, physically, and mentally. This is an incredibly delicate balance to achieve. Truly, I believe that wellness requires an almost constant effort in our ever-changing lives. It’s a commitment you make to yourself, to care for and value yourself as a person.
My personal wellness routine includes a mostly healthy diet (about 80/20), working out (weight lifting) 3-5 times per week, taking quiet time for myself every once in a while, 7+ hours of sleep per night, as well as reading books and researching topics of interest. When I’m able to include all of these things in my weekly routine, I operate my very best. And when I’m operating at my very best, I’m able to tackle challenges, find solutions, and organize my time more effectively. Wellness is a way of setting yourself up for success. At any rate, that’s what my wellness looks like. It might not look the same for you and that’s okay. But it is super important to keep these things in mind as we go about our daily lives!
