What does wellness mean to you? How important is your own wellness? Wellness plays an integral part in maintaining good health. It’s crucial to find balance in all aspects of wellness. Being physically, mentally and spiritually well all contribute to positive well-being and can keep you on track to maintaining balance in your life. Use these five components of wellness to help maintain your own.
Connections and Support
- Maintain relationships and make new ones.
- Focus on connecting with family, friends, colleagues and neighbours at home, school, work and in the community.
- Invest time in developing and maintaining these relationships. Use them as a foundation in your life.
- Support and enrich your day by having fulfilling relationships and meaningful connections.
- Walk, run or just be active. It doesn't have to be about being fit.
- Discover new ways to make yourself feel good.
