Statistics show that everything we do and feel relate to our well being. So what exactly is a wellness program and why does it matter?
Wellness programs are more than just working out and eating properly. A good wellness program includes all aspects of healthy living. When we feel ‘well,’ we tend to make better choices for ourselves. Positive choices lead to positive impacts on our lives. It is an active process to feel confident and aware that we are in charge of our own happiness and our own health; leading to total wellness and a fulfilling life.
This is not just being free of illness and pain, but a change and growth of the total person. It is a personal gain in our physical, mental, and social abilities. Working toward wellness is a constant process and something we need to continue to work towards everyday! This process is best worked with others, don’t try and do it alone! Lean on each other, spend time with people who like the same things you, laugh more. Lets work together to take small steps to long lasting healthy lifestyle changes.
Here are my five top tips to get you started:
1. Sleep- at least 8 hours a night
2. Calm your mind- yoga, breath, meditate
3. Go outside- get some fresh air (even if its cold)
4. Hydrate 8-10 glasses a day. (it'll fill you up and your skin will look great)
5. Gratitude- Keep a gratitude journal each day name one thing you are most grateful for
