How are you managing since the corona virus restrictions and these recurring surges? The end is in sight. Have you been able to maintain and even start some important lifestyle changes that contribute to your overall wellness to not only becoming healthier, but staying healthy for a lifetime?
The truth is that our physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing is worth taking care of. Sickness or below average health is either a result of not getting enough of what we need, or getting too much of what we don’t need. When was the last time you asked yourself, “What do I need to add or what do I need to remove in order to improve my overall health, wellness, and enjoyment of life?” Overall health and wellness incorporates our physical, social, mental and spiritual areas of our life. Each of these areas may require some significant additions or subtractions in order to improve our overall health.
Health and wellness is a lifestyle. Good nutrition is a lifestyle. Exercise and stretching is a lifestyle. Stress management is a lifestyle. Prayer, meditation, and investigating God is a lifestyle. Spending time communicating with family and friends is a lifestyle. Why not combine them all through paddling with friends in nature this summer? Set some super lifestyle goals and start working on them today, then share the gift with others!
Stay healthy everyone and pass on the love! …Dave
