I recently participated in a wellness competition at work. The competition involved reaching goals set in 5 areas of wellness. The woman who put the program together did an excellent job and I found the competition pretty motivating. The five areas of wellness she focused on were:
Strength Building Exercise
As I participated, I realized that I need to incorporate more strength training into my exercise routine. My running will improve and I will be healthier overall. I saw a couple of strength training suggestions online and can’t wait to try them out!
While I agree that these five areas of wellness are great, wellness for me also has spiritual, emotional and social components. I need all of these pieces to make me feel whole.
What areas of wellness are important to you?
