Wellness

Be your own best doctor

The idea of “wellness” goes beyond just a physical state of health. Your wellness requires your active cooperation. To achieve wellness, you have to evaluate your current health and commit to making changes to improve it. 

You don’t necessarily have to tick all the boxes of a preconceived notion of “health” to live “well.” You don’t have to fit into a size 4, have enviably clear skin, or plaster a smile on your face at all times.

Wellness is a journey, and your daily actions matter more than your physical image. And if you’re currently healthy, you continue to achieve wellness by taking action to maintain your health.

For example, wellness may include following an exercise routine to keep your muscles and bones in good condition, regardless of whether you have a weight loss goal as well. Wellness also involves giving your body the nutrition it needs to heal itself or operate efficiently. Mental and emotional wellness is also crucial, and can be accomplished by learning how to lower your stress levels, whether through meditation, mindfulness, good sleep hygiene, or other techniques.

Of course, if you’re sick, you owe it to yourself to remedy the problem by seeking medical advice. Regularly visiting your healthcare provider(s) is another important factor for maintaining personal wellness.

But remember, you’re your own best doctor. You know what’s normal for you. Advocating for your health and wellness may require you to find a new healthcare provider if your concerns are dismissed. 

Develop a self-care routine to prioritize your health and wellbeing. After all, if you’re not healthy physically or mentally, can you really be there for your family or friends? Can you put in your best effort at your job or truly enjoy your hobbies? Your wellness journey is all about taking care of yourself, not about what you look like to outsiders. If you feel good in every way, take steps to stay that way, and your doctor has no concerns about your health, you’re the embodiment of “health and wellness!”
