Seeking wellness one step at a time


Image from chestofbooks.com


Seeking wellness is a holistic journey.
It causes an individual to look at all aspects of their life and ask the question -
"Does this look and feel healthy?"

This can be a very hard question to ask and an even harder one to ponder and then take action on.

Some areas of health and fitness have been slipping recently due to two different foot injuries - one in August and one in October. Sad to say the scale has been sliding in the wrong direction since consistent cardio work has been off and on again for the last few months. I'm slowly getting back to it, but there is work - more than I'd like to think about and do - to be done.

What are some ways you re-energize seeking wellness in your life? Are there any tools or encouragement that helped get your feet back on the road to seeking health without perfectionism and regret dogging you all the way?

It will be a one step at a time journey - and I know that it's important to pay attention to where the strengths already exist and go from there -
but, I thought I'd already tackled this part of the road once or twice before.

I'm right there with you, pal. I think that the question you posed, "Does this look and feel healthy?" is a great place to start. Loving oneself takes a lot of determination, especially when your tendency is to nuture others first. Let's support each other in our endeavors!

I'm not sure where I'm at with it. (which is probably an indicator of where I'm NOT, huh?)

I do know that 'been here, thought I tackled this' road a time or twenty. And I've discovered 'levels' of enlightenment.
Boy, that sounds cheesy, huh? :-/

True for me......still sounds cheesy! LOL
