What Is Wellness?

Wellness can mean a lot of different things to different people, but one of the most important aspects to consider is
that it's a way to focus on optimal wellbeing and to integrate mind, body, spirit and a loving accepting of who you are. Also, it's important to make sure you are connecting with others and engaging in meaningful activities that YOU find enjoyable and fulfilling.

While Wellness is about an individual's life journey, it also includes meaningful connections with your community and environment.

Simply, wellness is living your life consciously in ways that improve your health and well being.

Self-Check Exercise

Sit down in a space where you won't be interrupted; you can do this quietly or put on a lo-fi track.

  • Identify one negative message you tell yourself often ("you're so stupid, you knew better," etc.).
  • Relax and close your eyes for 1-2 minutes, think of that negative thought and say OUT LOUD, "Who says?"
  • Take notice of the first person who flashes into your mind (teacher, parent, friend, etc.).
  • With this info, you could write the person(s) a letter, get all of the thoughts on paper (digital works)

This exercise can help you find out what's been holding you back from feeling good about yourself and work through those blocks, not around them.
