“Health and Wellness” is a phrase that has been around for years. It’s still going strong, and only getting more popular.
But what is wellness??
What is Wellness?
Dictionary.com defines wellness as:
1. the quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as the result of deliberate effort.
2. an approach to healthcare that emphasizes preventing illness and prolonging life, as opposed to emphasizing treating diseases.
So wellness is not just one thing.
It’s everything we do to try and stay healthy. The food we eat, the exercise we do, the supplements we take, our mental and emotional health.
Wellness is the whole package. Emotional health, mental health, and physical health.
Most of the time we think that Healthy = not sick.
But it’s more than that. It’s being proactive. We need to make sure we are doing everything we can to maintain our mental, emotional, and physical health.
Start Your Wellness Journey
It’s never too late to start! It doesn’t matter our age.
If you are not where you would like to be with your health and wellness. Start now!
Start with a visit to your doctor.
Then start slowly making changes in your diet, your exercise routine, and your supplements. It’s been proven that if we make slow changes, instead of big changes all at once, we are more apt to keep up with the changes we do make.
Try and focus on your mental and emotional health every day, too.
Do something you enjoy, just because you enjoy it. Surround yourself with people that build you up, not tear you down. Religion is a big part of mental and emotional health as well.
If you need help making changes, I recommend finding a health coach. (It’s what I want to be when I grow up! lol)
