    A wholesome wellness

    There are so many dieting books, healthy food and workout videos online that you really are spoilt for choice. It’s justified to now seek out and consume more green foods such as vegetables and fruit. However that’s all well and good, but it won’t nearly have as large an effect for giving you extra years of your life, as good mental health will. It doesn’t matter if you’re working out every day, eating healthy and sticking to a tight sleep schedule. If you’re stressed and are constantly unhappy, you are unhealthy in your mind. Stress can eat away at you, and for many of us because we lack the coping skills, we allow it to become a part of our daily life. Suddenly, being unhappy at work and living together with a toxic partner becomes the norm. Take as much care to learn stress-relieving skills as you do learning new diets and exercises.

      I lke your mindset here. I personally have a holistic view of health and find that staying active, eating well, and engaging your mind are key parts to maintaining wellness across you lifespan. That said, I do think it’s important to go to the doctor and dentist for check-ups and cleanings. Beyond that, we need to be our own advocates for our physical and mental health and take care of our bodies so they will take care of us.
