Wellness is simply “Being Well”! An intro to healthy living.

Wellness? What is it?

Every year thousands of books are published about Health, Wellness and Fitness. Many appear to be well grounded but we also see many different, and often contradictory, perspectives. Which is the right perspective? Which approach to use? There is so much information!

I have explored some of these perspectives and have come to see that Wellness can be thought of as the result of interplay between three factors: Nutrition, Exercise and, Attitude.

Correct Nutrition is essential to Health. However this is an area in which there is much disagreement. Is sugar bad for you? What makes you fat? How do you lose weight? The answer is the adoption of an eating regime that has a solid scientific basis and, which addresses your needs. Some examples of diets which I will analyze are: DASH, TLC, Mayo Clinic, Mediterranean, Vegetarian, among others.

We all know that Exercise is one of the foundations of a healthy life, bringing many advantages to the body. People often complain that “they would like to train” but “just don’t have the time” or that “the gym is too expensive”. Often such statements are more excuses than valid reasons.

What did I mean by “Attitude”? One of the biggest problems resulting from the daily grind is stress. If not controlled, stress can affect all aspects of your life. Don’t let it take the reins! How do you fight this silent and, sometimes invisible threat? One way is through meditation. I know that using that word conjures images of “weird people”, sitting in weird ways, muttering weird things. What I am proposing is something much simpler, a temporary refuge from the confusion, for a few minutes. They may not seem like much but; these practices produce positive health effects that have been verified countless times.

Join me! Every week I will have suggestions for these areas. Can I count on you?
