Wellness, what is it?

Ok, so back to the WELLNESS point. I guess the place to start would be my definition of wellness. It could mean many different things. My explanation of wellness is a little different. Wellness to me is not just about health. It's a mind, body, spirit thing. Wellness to me is contentness with what you eat, where you live, who you are around, what you beleive, and how you act. All these things have to be in harmony with eachother. If all these things are in sync, then I believe you have wellness. It's a state of mind. Ever heard the old Baptist hymn "It is well with my soul"? I mean being content with your life, how you live it, who you live it with, that's wellness. For me, it's spending time with my kids and husband, gardening, cooking, baking, reading, writing, not having the TV going, and learning. My wellness also includes trying to use more natural and organic products. Not relying on the grocery store for everything. Not relying on big pharmaceutical companies for my pain releif, or a cough, or a tummy ache! That makes me feel well. Wellness was dumping my entire box of pills for my many ailments in the trash. Wellness is reading to my girls at bedtime. Wellness is cooking a good, healthy meal. Wellness is gathering fresh eggs from my chickens. Wellness is having all my dishes washed. So, how do you plan on being well? Achieve wellness your own way, and in your own time. Start little. If you are unhappy, reflect on what is making you unhappy, and change it. Baby steps. You will get there. We can all achieve wellness together!!
