I'm kind of lazy by nature. I've always known I should do a better job of taking care of my health, but when it came down to it, it just seemed like too much time and effort to bother.
I mean I always been conscious of my habits and have tried to take steps to keep myself relatively healthy -ish. Such as, trying to eat more than just potato chips, parking a little further away at the grocery store, and maybe doing some self-care when I could find the time. I mean that's eating healthy, exercising, and me time, right? 3 simple things and everything would be alright.
I was wrong.
As I continued down a path of unhappiness and poor health, I started questioning my plan of action, pathetic as it was.
That’s when I stumbled across the idea of these 8 aspects of wellness. Upon researching further, I realized I was missing the mark, big time. So I decided to dig even deeper into wellness. I wanted wellness to be my lifestyle, not just some fad.
So I decided to get serious and became a Certified Wellness Coach. I learned so much between this coaching certificate program and my own research that I grew my thinking and eventually it evolved into this concept of placing all my focus on these 8 Dimensions of Wellness.
I discovered through research and training, that by working on each of these 8 aspects individually and consistently, only then you can begin to reach your wellness goals.
