Wellness is the attitude that we work towards creating a balanced lifestyle.
Wellness is a growing philosophy stemming from the belief that blending western and eastern medicine helps us a better life. When we blend or add one or more of the following – fitness, mental health, beauty regimes as well as other health practices such as aromatherapy, massage, spiritual connection and coaching – these will come together to help us reach a positive and fruitful life. When practicing wellness, our aim is to create and live a balanced lifestyle.
The term Wellness is relatively new. It is also a mature and sophisticated practice. It is the practice of the “mind and body connection”, a collaborative process where traditional, complimentary and soft medicines come together in the pursuit of creating a healthy and balanced lifestyle for the individual. Practicing Wellness doesn’t stop after one loses weight or a single visit to the dentist. Wellness is an active and ongoing process of becoming aware of and making choices with the goal of creating a healthy and fulfilling life.
Here are some of the elements of Wellness.
We are responsible
It is this pursuit, of a balanced lifestyle, where we foster physical and mental health and are personally encouraged to take responsibility for our health. In that, we actively choose wellness, to be well! It is an important, new concept, belief, a way of life makes us in charge of our health. And, we start with education to understand why diet would improve our health.
It is not a diet; it’s a lifestyle
Our bodies and our minds are one. The more we learn about our bodies, the more we understand that the foods we eat does affect our brain, skin, and mood as much as it affects our physical bodies. And, foods can heal!
Based on our nutritional philosophy, we believe that you should seek out a nutritionist who uses a “Whole Foods” approach to eating. Not one who believes in quick fixes or fad diets. A well-trained nutritionist also includes teaching you how to eat fresh, the joy of whole foods as part of your basic wellness approach.
In addition to Essentrics Fitness, cardio or another traditional fitness program, perhaps add a complimentary dimension to your life. For example: working towards emotional stability through finding positive friendships is a complimentary dimension to hiring a fitness trainer.. Each dimension contributes to a positive and healthy living. Creating a balanced life includes physical health and emotional well-being, from body, mind to spirit, are all working together in harmony.
