Creating a Wellness Program Designed Specifically for YOU

Creating a Wellness Program Designed Specifically for YOU

Spring is in the air!  This is a wonderful season for clearing and cleansing, and redefining what a personal wellness program might look like for YOU.  jpi biking picThere are so many ways to be healthy today, and creating a wellness program for yourself is a great way to set up a healthy system in your life.

Sometimes you really need to rewire how you create your day, with a wellness program in mind.

One thought that works for me – is to exercise three times a day, even if it’s just ten minutes at a time. I realized that I usually eat 3-5 times per day, why not exercise more than once?  I mix it up with walking, elliptical, biking on my trainer, stretching, weights, etc. Also, I listen to great podcasts or audios while making my breakfast in the morning – I spend very little time watching all the ‘bad’ news on tv.

Wellness to me also means spending time with those I care about, creating boundaries around how much time I’m spending on my business, adhering to the financial plans I’ve created for my future, getting plenty of sleep, and feeling positive and happy.

If you’re one of many who spend most waking hours working, here are some simple things you can do to create a healthy wellness program, whether you’re at home or at the office:

  • Increase your energy through proper breath and eating water-rich foods
  • Drink half your body weight in ounces of water
  • Set up a walking club before or after work with a neighbor or colleague
  • Start a pedometer challenge with a goal of 10,000 steps a day.
  • Hit the stairs instead of the elevator.
  • Have a bowl of fruit available rather than candy.
  • Eat alkalizing foods, not acidic.
  • Meditate as a great way to relax and relieve the stress of the day
  • Download an app on your mobile device that tracks your wellness program
  • Create a list of 25 healthy ideas for your wellness program that resonate with you.

Hear from a few happy, healthy clients:

Joy showed me how to improve my game, in life and at the office, by making life balance a priority.  She helped me see things with new clarity and peace, making everything a whole lot easier, less stressful, and more fun.  Sometimes the way to speed up is to slow down first.  Patience is power.

Thank you so much for your caring support over the last many months. Your insights, understanding, analysis, and encouragement have definitely helped me meet my goals and improve my life. You are compassionate, clear headed, and motivational. Just what I needed! The progress I have made while working with you has made my life immeasurably better. Thank you for everything.

By the way, thank you for this great list of acidic/alkaline foods.  Lots of stuff on this list that actually I enjoy (alkalyzing) and lots of stuff I was eating (acidic) that was dominating my diet.  I am definitely skewing my diet to a more healthy balance now!

Since coaching, I find that I don’t waste my energy on things don’t really matter, and being “stressed out” is no longer my way of life. I’ve increased my productivity in all areas of my life and have a new found level of peace and contentment.

      You’re welcome, Carmen. There are so many complexities in life today; I have realized, through trial and error, that simplicity offers a sustainable approach in supporting successful outcomes, and allows for an easier journey. Not a bad combination 🙂

    Thank you so much, Joy! This is a jumping-off point for my new schedule as an independent business owner.

      June, I’ve found it so helpful to have a schedule to follow when you’re ‘your own boss’. Wellness schedules are the best – enjoy your new adventure!
