How can you evaluate wellness?

Wellness of your body occurs when all of your body processes, physical and mental are functioning at the peak levels. In this blog I will examine what it takes to achieve complete body wellness. 

An enriched life 

It requires more than simply taking a trip to the gym, or a walk in the park every now and then. To evaluate your state of wellness, you must establish what goals you want to achieve and make your life more enriched and easier to live, stress free. 

A well thought out nutrition and exercise plan

You will reap the benefits of well thought out plans of nutrition and exercise many years into our life, because you have taken the time to remain well and fit. 

Your Immune system

Your immune system is a tale tell sign of your state of wellness and one of the real benefits of a healthy, well immune system is the prolonging of the onset of many age-related diseases.  

Conditions such as Alzheimer’s, strokes, heart attacks, and overall feelings of good health depend upon a healthy immune system.

Maintain your state of wellness 

Your ability to continue in a normal healthy lifestyle many years past retirement is a goal achieved through maintaining a state of wellness.  

But while you are still working, if you love what you do, work is no longer seen as a thief of your free time, it becomes a source of great enjoyment!

Either way, your ability to continue participating is a direct benefit of our state of wellness and continued good health. So follow your passion and work at something you adore. 

Continue learning to keep the mind sharp

In evaluating your wellness goals, and state of being, the mental capacity for continued learning, teaching, and experiencing is a top priority.  Mental sharpness comes from continued use of your mind to learn, communicate and think.  

What about the physical benefits of continued wellness?  

The peace of mind that comes from knowing your body is in top shape, ready to deal whatever comes along, is a priceless possession.  To be able to ascertain that you’ve spent your day wisely, and invested in yourself is a real accomplishment.  

The benefit seen from adding just 30 minutes of exercise to your daily routine are unbelievable. You will feel a tremendous increase in energy, exercising daily. It's great for the body and mind. I have a client that I am currently training, who last 45kgs all by herself by simply power walking every day, and changing her nutrition, and decreasing her calorie intake. Increased energy levels are one of the greatest benefits of a well and fit body.

Continued wellness is a lifetime responsibility

If you use your resources wisely and educate yourself about the things our body needs to maintain wellness, over the duration of our life, it isn’t a difficult thing to attain.

The benefits of continued wellness are reaped will into our later years.  Look at it as an investment you make, not of dollars and cents, but of time and education.  The return on your investment is as yet unmatched by any prescription available.
