Bring wellness to your world
By RACHAEL RICKARD
wellness: Try tai
chi or yoga-
to help you
Wellness is a word that has been
getting a bit of air-time lately and
this is a good thing. However, what
does it mean to be well? And how
will we know when we've got it?
Let's start with a dictionary
1. The quality or state of being
healthy in body and mind, especially
as the result of deliberate effort;
2. An approach to healthcare that
emphasises preventing illness and
prolonging life, as opposed to
This is all good, but you might ask
how we fit this in between paying
the bills, doing the shopping,
preparing meals, attempting to
string eight hours of sleep together
and the busyness known as life in
the 21st century.
Bottom line: wellness takes
effort, and the benefits of this effort
result in an improved quality of life
and prevention of illness that, for
many of us,
are currently missing.
Quite simply, wellness falls into
four broad categories: physical,
psychological, spiritual and social.
If any of these are out of sync or
dominate our lives too heavily, then
we become prone to illness or a
state of being where we are ''out of
Striving to reach a balance in all
these dimensions is worth deliberate
effort, as it brings about physical
fitness, strength, esteem and
confidence, as well as a reduction in
anxiety, depression, illness, an ability
to remain calm under fire, and clarity
in our thoughts.
So, how can you bring wellness to
your world? Here are a few simple
suggestions to get you started:
1. Drop your shoulders.
Often we hold tension in our neck
and shoulders, and by consciously
dropping them, you help your body
let go of this tension.
2. Have some fun in your day.
Try to make someone else laugh --
this will bring happiness to the
forefront of your mind and improve
your relationships with others.
3. Gaze at the stars, the
mountains, the sheep, the cows --
enjoy our environment.
4. Try a tai chi or yoga-based
exercise class. This will help you to
stretch, relax and breathe.
5. Write a gratitude list and put
down all the things you are grateful
for in your life.
6. Seek some new reading
material. We know that wellness is
something we have to consciously
bring to our lives, so find some
inspiring, motivational, happy
reading. Jack Canfield's Chicken
Soup for the Soul books are a great
7. Get outdoors. Our bodies need
Vitamin D (which we get from the
sun) and getting outdoors can help
lift your mood.
