Wellness is more than just exercise and nutrition. While these are both important, our overall wellness includes many other factors such as emotional, social, relational, how we handle stress, to what extent we allow ourselves to rest and relax, and more. Wellness is when we take care of our WHOLE self.
A few big struggles I've done a lot of work to overcome are:
*handling stress and emotions more effectively
*allowing enough time for rest and relaxation rather than having to be doing something productive all the time
*not letting fear paralyze me and shifting my mindset and internal self talk in big ways
*being more compassionate with myself when I mess up
*learning to love myself better
One thing I've struggled with for years and am still grappling with today is staying consistent with eating the way my body wants me to eat. I love too many foods that wreak havoc on my body.... I'm working on that... I know what and how I need to eat. I've proven that it's the way my body wants me to eat and I've noticed the benefits of doing so. But it's still a challenge for me. I'll share more about that in a future post.
But I'm curious....
What are YOUR biggest challenges when it comes to your overall health and wellness goals...? I'd love to know if you are comfortable sharing.
