What is Health and Wellness?

What does Health and Wellness mean to you? Do you feel healthy and well?  Maybe I can help you define health and wellness and you can decide what kind of journey you need to take to get there.  

The meaning of health,” it is a state of being free from illness and injury” and that wellness “is a state of being in good health as an actively pursued goal”. But what does this actually mean and how can you act on these to achieve a sense of health and wellness in your own life?

These are the topics that you might like to think about when considering your own personal health and wellness.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY – simply put we all need to do it, we know it helps improve our physical, emotional and mental wellbeing so, why isn’t it at the top of the list of things to do in our day? The research is out there, so what stops some of us from doing it daily?

EMOTIONAL & STRESS MANAGEMENT – while stress management has been around for a while, emotional health is becoming more important in our everyday living. We will never be able to stop our  thoughts and feelings whether they are positive or negative, but we can become aware of them and create strategies that help us deal with them in a healthy way  instead of trying to numb them with our bad habits.”

SELF-CARE – my favourite, I love a bit of self-care! It doesn’t mean I’m selfish, it means I’m just taking time out for myself to make me, a better me.  I find taking time out for myself helps quieten the mind and it gives time for the heart and soul to sing. So, that means I can dig deep to find direction and purpose and do activities that take care of my mental, emotional, and spiritual health. 

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT – haven’t well all struggled with this one? Hand up! I tell you I’ve got vertigo from going up and down so many times with my weight and yes, it’s damn hard.  I know I must adopt long term healthy food choices and healthy eating habits to maintain a healthy body weight. But what’s healthy? We have so many choices and so many experts giving us conflicting advice, frankly, I don’t know who to believe.  I have discovered and started to understand my “FOOD MIND” You know the voices in your head?  They might not always know best.  I have found listening to my body rather than my mind has certainly helped in maintaining my body weight. Maybe I can help you too.

Now, I have good and bad news is. The bad news is that health and wellness requires work, commitment, and consistency. The good news is you can do it at our own pace one little step at a time, and if you like, I can help you along the way.
