What does wellness mean to you?
Wellness is basically giving your body, mind, and soul a big ol’ bear hug and saying, “Hey, I care about you.” It’s about feeding your soul with things that make you happy whether that means spending time with loved ones, going to your favorite HIIT boxing class, getting your nails done in your favorite shade, or simply taking a quiet moment to appreciate the beauty around you. To me, wellness is all about taking care of yourself and finding that sweet spot of balance and happiness. It’s like giving yourself permission to enjoy life to the fullest and embracing what brings you joy and peace.
What are some common misconceptions about wellness?
One common misconception is that wellness is a quick fix. Unfortunately, there’s no magical Harry Potter-style potion for wellness though. It’s so important to be patient with yourself and enjoy the journey of self-discovery and growth because wellness is a personal experience, and everyone’s path looks a little different. Wellness is a continuous process that requires consistent effort, time, and reflection. It’s about making sustainable changes and building healthy habits that fit who you are and what you need. There is no one-size-fits-all approach.
