Wellness 101: How To Make Sure Your Wellness Matters
The term wellness is defined as being in good health. That can actually consist of a few different elements when talking about our own wellness. As a person who is seeking complete wholeness and overall good wellbeing you will need to consider all aspects of your wellness.
When comparing your wellness with others, keep in mind, what works for them may not work for you and vice versa. The journey of complete wellness becomes a lifestyle change. Your wellness is a never-ending journey of bettering who you are and who you want to be.
You are important and your wellness matters! When you start your expedition to better wellness, here are a few things to think about to get you started.
Having a supportive family and friends is a great beginning.
Surrounding yourself with people who support and love you can be critical during a lifestyle change, but also for your wellness. The company you keep can influence how you feel, how you act, and even how you think. If you are surrounded by negativity, conflicting, or inconsiderate people, it can start to change who you are. Negativity can incorporate into your everyday life.
That is not who you want to be. Having courteous, respectful, and humble friends and family can mean the difference in living a positive or negative lifestyle. For your wellness, associate with people that are accepting of you are and will embrace the changes you want to make.
Physical Health is a game-changer for your wellness.
Have you ever heard the saying; “You are what you eat.”? Food makes a big impact on your wellness. Eating junk can be detrimental to how you feel. A well-balanced diet can give you the fuel and energy you need to complete your everyday activities. When you have an unhealthy relationship with food, it can lead to the destruction of your overall health and wellness.
Along with a healthy diet, exercise is imperative also. The benefits of exercise are hard to ignore when it comes to your wellness. Exercise can lead to the prevention and delay of multiple diseases including; heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Physical activity can also promote better sleeping patterns, boosts energy, can help you maintain a healthy weight.
A combination of exercise and a healthy diet is a great way to get you on the right track for a better lifestyle and improved wellness.
Mental health is the biggest factor when talking about why your wellness matters.
Mental health factors in your emotional, psychological, and social well being. Poor mental health can lead to anxiety, depression, and a multitude of other health conditions. Not having good mental health can also start to affect how we act, think, and especially how we feel. Having poor mental health can also drain you physically and mentally of all your happiness, energy, and your ability to be content in life.
When you have great mental health it can help you adapt to the daily stress of life. When you are in a place of good mental health you will start to value yourself. When you value yourself and have good self-esteem, you may be productive in your life goals and may be able to live a happy content life.
Also, keep in mind, sometimes good mental health can be difficult to conquer alone. Seeking help is not a sign of weakness. Seeking help means you understand, you can’t improve on your own and need a little assistance. Speaking to your health care provider is a good step to finding out your resources.
Keeping in mind the combination of your mental health, physical health, and the company you keep can lead to better overall wellness, you have to make the changes. What are somethings that you suggest to improve someone else’s wellness?
