Wellness is not a thing. It is not something you achieve or acquire in one month according to your New Year’s Resolution or after you did a “program” for seven or fourteen days. It’s not a certification you receive following a weekend workshop. It’s not something you get if you are lucky, or if you have the right DNA. Wellness is a process of taking good care of yourself, often with predictable results that are quite enjoyable. Wellness is a lifestyle, and always the result of a variety of ways that you make taking care of yourself a priority. This looks different for each individual. It is important to find your unique ID in living your life, making choices, and manifesting the results that are important to you.
The American Heart Association recommends “The Simple 7” as factors that can lead to a longer and healthier life. They are: not smoking, not being overweight, being very active (defined as the equivalent of walking at least twenty-two minutes a day), eating healthier (for example, lots of fruits and veggies), having below-average cholesterol, having normal blood pressure, and having normal blood sugar. This association’s assessment is that 90% of heart attacks could be avoided with lifestyle changes.
On a sliding scale, select your response to each of the following statements with Never being on the far left and Always on the far right. I urge you to be completely honest with your self-assessment so that you can make adjustments where you will get the most benefit.
