Personal Wellness in 2015: How Does It Look?

Happy New Year!

As a wellness advocate, I would be remiss if I did not offer my vision for personal wellness for ALL in 2015, so here goes…

I will move my body more.

I will enjoy my body more.

I will spend more time outside.

I will drink more water.

I will eat more fruits and vegetables.

I will enjoy the food I eat more.

I will appreciate my job more.

I will appreciate my family more.

I will focus more on the positive in myself, in my family, in my community and at work instead of complaining about what I can’t control.

I will build people up instead of tearing them down.

I will spend more time with friends raving, not ranting.

I will talk more about what I do like and less about what I don’t.

I will daydream more.

I will take time to meditate every day even if it means just focusing on my breath for 15 minutes.

I will be more “in the moment” when I’m getting ready, when I’m driving, when I’m in a meeting, when I’m making dinner.

I will do more of what I enjoy…reading, painting, playing soccer, growing petunias.

I will do less racing and more relaxing.

I will choose optimism over pessimism.

I will write these affirmations, and I will live what I write. I will refer to them every day and remember why I wrote them. I will be a beacon of light (or at least strive for a faint glow).

I will not be hard on myself when I eat chips or forget to meditate. Instead I will embrace every day as a new year and begin again.

Read here how to implement each of these. And come back each week for specifics on improving wellness, both professionally and personally.
