Wellness is something everyone should aspire too, and its basic definition is simply living well. It’s the process of making choices that lead to a more fulfilling life and being aware of those choices, as well as growing from them. If we do good actions and feel good about them, we do more good actions, feel good about them and so on.
If we not only do good actions but also feel good about them, then we have a wellness approach towards life. There are eight sections of wellness, that are: Occupational, emotional, environmental, social, spiritual, financial, physical, and intellectual.
Each section is connected to the other and each one needs to be kept at an optimum level in order for us to live a full and fulfilled life without stress. The strategies that you use to become balanced in all of these areas can change when it comes to your own mental health.
Some strategies include keeping away from addictive substances, having regular exercise, monitoring weight and health indicators, and talking about potential stressors before they become serious problems. Wellness isn’t something that you can do alone, and having a support network to help you get through the sections you have trouble with will always be beneficial.
If you have job or spiritual or social hurdles, part of being well is to ask others to aid you in getting over them. Then you can aid them in return and become better people together. The most important part of living well is to be able to see all of the choices in life, both good and bad, and pick the option that will provide you with the most benefit.
It might be tough on some occasions, but really taking all the choices life gives you and picking the options that will make you a better person will yield results.
