The Blissful Union of Wellness and Fitne

You pick up the magazines each day, and you’re bombarded with health and fitness information.

Advertisements and articles that are designed to impart much needed information to the reader about the state of fitness and health

 I want you to stop, and think for just one moment. How do you determine your current fitness and wellness levels? Does your regular doctor impart this information as you visit,

Does he inquire each time you go if you believe yourself to be fit and well? Probably not. Nor does he give you any method for determining the status on your own.

Fitness centers abound in this country, and most are staffed with counsellors who can test your fitness level. What about your wellness level? Are they one and the same?

They are not one and the same, yet they rely heavily on each other to keep you healthy.

Thanks to the advances in modern medicine, the average person’s life span now exceeds seventy year

Thanks to the advances in modern medicine, the average person’s life span now exceeds seventy years. If you stop to think, that’s quite a long time to walk around on this earth.

Along with the wonderful life expectancy increases, however have come the detrimental effects of overeating and unhealthy eating. It seems that as we advance in one area, we regress in others.

This doesn’t have to be so, however. Reaching a place of responsibility, where we combine our physical health, with our wellness enhances those extra years of life. Being fit and being well.

Your wellness rating is dependent upon your immune system, and what vitamins, supplements, and nutrition you provide for your immune system. Fit people can sometimes be unwell.

The Interchangeability of Wellness, Fitness and Health

Your wellness rating is dependent upon your immune system, and what vitamins, supplements, and nutrition you provide for your immune system.

The Quality of Life: Is Health Important?

As a matter of course, all responsible persons should take the time to educate themselves, and their children, about the benefits of healthy eating.

Learning to eat for life in a health conscious way is one of the best guarantees for a long and fulfilling life. The quality of our lives is as important as the quantity to most individuals,

But because of debilitating disease, we are often forced to make a decision and choose between quality and quantity.

What Makes Us Well?

Wellness refers to the condition of good physical and mental health, especially when maintained by proper diet, exercise, and habits.

Nutrition refers to the nurturing of our body, in our ability to keep it healthy & functioning as it is supposed to do. Ability to provide the body with all the necessary food, vitamins, & minerals

So that we continue to thrive in our daily life processes. But what makes us well?  The first place to start would be with the examination of your eating habits.

Since we are a product of what we eat, if our eating habits are unhealthy, or do not provide for the nutrition we need, we’re not going to be healthy individuals at the end of the process.

Do you take in more calories than your body needs?  Are you supplementing your vitamins and minerals to make sure you are getting your recommended daily allowances?

If you’re not making the most basic of efforts to take care of your nutritional needs, you aren’t a good individual.  Next, you might want to look at your exercise habits, if there are any.

If there aren’t any exercise routines to examine, no wellness. Everyone, no matter what their age, benefits from exercise.

It is  organized exercise activities, free weights, or simply establishing a personal routine, exercise is an excellent wellness tool.

It keeps our bodies conditioned, our mental sharpness working at top speed, and thanks to the physical aspect, we get a boost to our cardio health, extra calorie burn, and more oxygen to those cells!

Being able to deal with and handle the daily stresses of life keeps us well.  Making sure we take the time to accommodate our needs for stress relief,

Such as downtime, therapy time, massage time, or simply take the time for a nice, hot bath. The body tends to retain stress in the muscle of the shoulder and back.

Taking the time to relax, do relaxation exercises, and combine this with physical exercise for the entire body, and you shouldn’t have any trouble maintaining a state of wellness.
