I am here, back to blogging about health, wellness and fitness. One thing that I will be starting on this blog will Wellness Wednesday. On Wednesdays, I will post about wellness specific information. So to start off the first post we are going to start at the beginning.
Where are you at in your wellness journey?
What do I mean by this? Well are you on a wellness journey, have you began to think about where you want to be with your wellness? If the answer is no, then what brought you here?
In psychology we learn about the stages of change. There is the pre-contemplative stage of change, this is the part before you realize you need a change. Maybe some other tag brought you here but now you have some interest peaked. Then people move to the contemplative stage of change. This is where you are beginning to think that there may be a problem with something going on in your life. Maybe your pants are starting to get a little tighter than you like or you are getting more tired quicker than you used to. Maybe you are just not happy with where you are so you are thinking about making a change. After this comes planning, maybe you are in this stage of change. Are you starting to make plans to make changes, making a plan to exercise more, setting up goals that you want to achieve are some ways that we begin to plan. Then comes the action stage where you actually start doing things differently. This is when maybe you are eating differently, maybe you have made a new workout routine. Then is maintenance when you are continuing on the journey and are able to without needing additional supports and these changes have become habits and lifestyle changes
So the first step in your wellness journey it to figure out where you are at on this journey and determine if you are ready to start one if you are not already on a journey. Next week we will discuss the way to get going on a wellness journey. Let me know on the comments your thoughts!
