Everybody seems to be talking about wellness. I just did a seminar for the city of Walnut on wellness and we had over a hundred people attend.  I think wellness comes from having a healthy mind, body and spirit.  I tell my clients the same thing.  I think wellness comes from being quiet inside from knowing one is growing into who they are intended to be more and more each day.  I think wellness involves daily meditation and working to manage one’s stress, a healthy diet, vitamins and supplements and daily exercise and a faith in something bigger and more powerful than us.

Wellness is not something that just happens it’s a lifestyle that needs to occur daily.  It’s a desire to be operating at one’s optimum.  Your life will have much more quality if you are operating at your optimum.  If you bring total wellness into your life you will feel great and have the energy and mindset to live the wonderful life that each and every one of us is so deserving of.  I feel if I’m going to be here living my life why not do what I need to do to make it the best life possible.  I do all I can to bring optimum wellness into my life and my being every day.

Think about a starting point to bring wellness into your daily life.  Make your goals small and obtainable to start.  Once you’ve met these goals then add more.  Bringing total wellness into your life is a process and don’t beat yourself up as you go but praise yourself for the positive changes you are making.  I think if you add one change per week you are doing pretty well.  Something as simple as a daily walk and meditation can be a great place to start.  I wish you nothing total wellness in life!!!
