Journal! Meditate! Be grateful! Heard it all before, right?
The problem with all this constant bombarding of information on what to eat and how to exercise is that it's causing many people to reject the idea of wellness and the lifestyle it dictates. The pursuit of wellness has reached the “eye-roll-stage.” In fact, a recent poll declared wellness to be one of the most tedious topics.
There’s no denying that we can all use a little more wellness in our day-to-day lives but, it’s tough to hold down a full-time job, train, make homemade green juice, and meditate each day! So, if the media’s rules on how to be healthy and happy are making you anxious, it’s time to simplify.
The whole point of wellness is that it should become so effortless that you forget about pursuing it; living a positive and healthy lifestyle should become a given rather than something singled out as spectacular and worth applauding on Instagram.
Of course healthy living can incorporate all of the trends (if you want it to) but it doesn’t have to be defined by grandiose displays of health and fitness. So much of healthy living is made up of small things we do daily – things that don’t feel momentous, but that done consistently and over time, add up to provide big results.
One reason people resist change is that they focus on what they have to give up.
So, start small; create healthy habits, not restrictions.
