August is National Wellness Month and considering the delta variant and any other variants of COVID that may arise, we must be even more vigilant about our health and the state of our wellness.  How well we are is totally within our control, as wellness is a process of making choices to achieve a healthy, happy and fulfilling life.  If you haven’t begun to focus on your personal wellness, let National Wellness Month be the catalyst to creating healthy habits that focus on self-care, managing stress, relaxation and finding happiness and a sense of calm in the most basic of activities, such as walking and deep breathing.

More ways to commemorate National Wellness Month include:

  • Being more diligent about your exercise routine

  • Drinking more water

  • Being kind to your eyes

  • Getting enough sleep

  • Checking in on a friend or family member

  • Taking a relaxation break/meditate

  • Eating more fruits and veggies and cut down on artificial sugar consumption

  • Dedicating time for yourself and do what energizes you

I encourage you to #choose wellness and #findyourhappy.   Take a #wellfie of yourself doing what you enjoy.  Share it on your social or save it for yourself  as a reminder that self-care is the key to wellness.

Be well.
