Maybe you’ve heard the term “wellness” through work programs, or maybe through visiting your local health club (*ahem*, Peak Health and Wellness Center). But what does wellness encompass?
Many think of their physical wellness when the subject comes up, maybe even thinking about fitness or weight management attempts. Physical wellness is only part of what is considered to be a balanced “circle of wellness”. Take a look at each category on the circle, and identify one or two areas that might be out of balance. Start with one area at a time, and make a plan to enhance or improve that area.
How do I know if things are out of balance?
Maybe ask yourself:
The circle of wellness will never be perfect, but creating this awareness can help sustain long term patterns that support a balanced approach to wellness.
