What is wellness and where do we go to learn about wellness? Wellness is defined as our overall good health, and the condition sustained by healthy eating and fitness habits. We have so many places to turn for wellness information, that it would be impossible to cover all the possibilities in one article. However, we’ll cover the most common places to look, and let the reader take it from there.
The major sources of wellness information are available to everyone, everywhere. Libraries, the internet, your physical fitness instructor, and your health teachers are all viable avenues of information sources. The library contains more information about health and wellness than you could possibly read in a year’s time. There are magazines, periodicals, medical journals, and all sorts of books written on ways to become fit, to maintain fitness, or to participate in fitness activities. There are sources of information that explain the benefits of being well, the physical benefits, the mental benefits, the social benefits, and the self-esteem and emotional benefits. The library will also usually have video and audio information available on almost any topic covered by the reading material. They may even have wellness tapes available for viewing. Often, the library provides the opportunity for the low-income to access materials that otherwise would not be available. Video and audio tapes are examples of this opportunity.
The internet opens more windows on wellness than the library, since the internet is a compilation of many libraries, news articles, newspapers, and individual input. You have only to type in the word wellness using one of the available search engines, and suddenly you’ve got more sources of information than you can research. The search engines often return information in the order of actual relevance to your search words. So bear that in mind as you search. The first couple of pages will contain the most relevant information on wellness. You can locate information about wellness, local wellness programs, and instructors who specialize in one-on-one wellness evaluations and personal attainment plans.
Your local school physical education instructor and health teachers are invaluable sources of wellness information, in that they have an education in health and well-being. They are privy to the most sought after reliable sources of real wellness benefits. Many of the articles you will find, and much of the information you read, is not 100% accurate, ask a teacher, or instructor actually involved in wellness programs, and you are going to receive much more accurate feedback
Don’t forget to check out your local fitness center. Quite often they have random information posted, current magazines, and periodicals that address current wellness issues and often offer interested persons the chance to observe wellness in action.
There is incomparable beauty to be found in a tranquil place. Silence is therapeutic because it allows you to listen to your internal thoughts and be true to yourself. Spending time in solitude encourages me to accept myself as I am. It allows me to ponder what I stand for and recommit to it regularly.
For example, when I focus on living according to my own ideals, I am building my inner strength and confidence. There are many external influences, so be careful of what your listen and observe by paying attention. It is important to me to stick to your value system.
I smile with contentment when I reaffirm the things that I believe in. I am strengthened in my conviction and am able to stand up for what sits well with my soul. It is difficult to hear myself amidst the noise, so I move to a quite area whenever I am in search of answers.
Silence also contributes to a relaxed body and mind. I am able to confidently work through challenges when I am at ease.
My quiet time rejuvenates me. A fresh mind makes room for fresh ideas and endless possibilities. I build meditation into each day in the same way I make time for food and exercise.
Today, the silence around me has a different meaning. Before, I rely on it to renew my mind. Pulling away from the noise of the world around me; part of my well-being. It would give me the perspective to approach life with clarity.
Coming out of silence, makes me realize the importance of having a sound mind to have a conversation, to agree to disagree; to listen to a new aspect on life.
How do I build silence into my normal daily activities?
When is noise influential?
What other forms of therapy do I regularly expose myself to?
Gyms and fitness centers are close in efforts to fight COVID-19 with physical and social distancing. With this, most of us have gain weight. Home workouts have become the new norm.
Looking for a fun but challenging fitness group; I signed up for NEM Fit 30 Day Carb Cycling Challenge (Natalie Eve and Jonathan Coyle) from April 20, 2020 to May 20, 2020.
In the close group,, I posted “Dear Day 1, 2…etc” because
❤I wanted to be committed to this challenge.
❤To be accountable for my actions.
❤ changing mindset
Before, rice has always been my “filler” food (lack of a better word). In there carb cycling ebook, they have examples on what foods to eat for high and low carb.
It was challenging calculating maros. Natalie and Jonathan was able to explain it. They provide an excel template and recommended fitness app MyZone. However, it was okay to use other fitness apps. They wanted you to be comfortable what you were using in the challenge.
As the holidays get closer, I set setting my goals for the new year and reflect on:
1. What has been accomplished this far?
2. What was the hardest accomplishment to change?
3. What I need to do to change for a better me?
I start rejoicing in excitment; what joy’s to come. As I listen to my voice messages, there was one from a friend that past away this year.
Voice messages to me is a moment in time that one was thinking of or wanted to get a hold of you. I have not delete it because it reminds me of good times we shared. Holidays are not the same without my friend.
However, I live as if my friend was here playing video game or debuting on sports. My goal is to always stay connected with people. Yesterday has past.
Today has come to plan for tomorrow. So, what have you done to be thankful for the things you have?
