The definition of wellness is “the state of being in good health as an actively pursued goal.”
Feeling good as a by-product of youth was something we gave little thought to as youngsters. We had unlimited stamina and ate what we wanted. Our main concerns were clothes, friends, and getting homework done.
However, growing older changes everything. Our energy is no longer reserved for a game of kickball or endless hours of skipping rope. Today we must contend with balancing the push and pull of the real-life responsibilities of work and family.
The fast-paced demands on our time and energy, particularly for women, can easily make our personal health and well being a side note until something goes wrong.
When we are not feeling well, we are of little help to our families and of little effectiveness on our jobs, and limited in our ability to pursue personal goals.
To maintain a pleasing quality of life experience, we must start to view wellness as an investment in our good health. An investment that requires our active participation. An investment that requires a closer look at how we function in “wholeness” of being well in mind, body, and spirit.
So, how are you feeling? Is your mind clear? Is your body as strong as you would like it to be? Are you peace filled or anxiety-ridden?
Shifting your focus to a wellness mindset may be just what you need.
