Welcome Wellness Warriors!
Wayne Dyer once said, "Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change!"
Today, I'm going to ask you to look at wellness and maybe the way you think about wellness might change.
I have been out and about in my community asking people what they think about wellness and in particular, Where Does Wellness Begin? In the next few blogs I will include some interviews with people in my community and explore what they think about wellness and where it begins for them. You will learn from farmers, physicians, holistic practitioners, families and business owners. You can participate in this too. Start asking your friends, coworkers and family what wellness means to them and where they think wellness begins. Also explore where wellness begins with you. Send me your comments and suggestions. I'd love to hear from you!
I personally believe that wellness begins with AWARENESS. Just the simple act of being aware of what you put on your plate, what you choose at the grocery store, where you spend your restaurant dollars. And food is only ONE aspect of wellness. How are your choices when it comes to exercise? Do you allocate some of your budget to a gym membership, a tai chi class or a meditation group? Begin to explore wellness in your world.
I believe that we all have the opportunity to be WELL and to THRIVE. Let's do this together!
