Wellness Plan | Use The Pillars of Wellness For Your Best Life

Your Wellness Plan For Each Pillar Wellness

wellness planToday we would like to lay out a simple wellness plan for each of the pillars of wellness.  It seems today that most of us take more time, energy and focus on planning a holiday or an evening out than we do in creating a health and wellness plan for ourselves or our family.

Many people today spend time planning a budget, and a home renovation yet our very own well-being is left to chance!

And this lack of a wellness plan causes stress for so many. We feel it’s time to make a plan for your well-being, set out some rules and guidelines for your best life. You ready? You willing? Great! Let’s begin.

Your Plan Must Begin With Your Why!

Setting out a vision or what we call YOUR WHY will help you create a long-term wellness plan that you will be able to stick with through the good and the bad. Yes, some days will be a challenge and that is OK if you keep YOUR WHY in front of you. So, what is YOUR WHY for wanting to create wellness in your life?

Take some time to consider this for yourself and your family. You see for me the WHY was watching my mother lie on a hospital bed waiting for a hip replacement. This was way back in 1997 and I remember that evening thinking to myself that if I didn’t begin to take better care of me I would be her in 20 years. It was strong WHY I created that evening and it changed my focus and my future. Your wellness plan and YOUR WHY will do the same for you.

Holistic Wellness encompasses a balance of Thoughts, Breath, Hydration, Diet, Exercise, and Sleep. Taking some time to set a wellness plan in motion for your best life can move you from feeling OK to living the life of your dreams.

So, go ahead and grab a journal. Let’s begin to show you how to make a lifestyle change!!
