What is wellness?

I am often confused by the term wellness. What is it? Is it going to a spa for a massage? Is it eating a plate of veggies? The reality is there is no perfect definition. I think the best way to explain wellness is "any activity or habit you do to better help one acheive a higher state of health." For example going to the gym regularly is a wellness habit. Doing this on a regular basis will certainly help you maintain an active life. The point is wellness is an action word. One must actively participate if they are looking to acheive a higher state of wellness. My top 3 wellness acts.
1. Exercise regularly. It can simply be a 20 minute walk but make sure you move your body daily!
2. Eliminate ALL refined carbs including white flour and white sugar.
3. Reduce your stress by emptying your plate. Learn to say no. Much of our stress is self inflicted. Don't commit to so much.

That's it for now. See you next time.
