By this time in January, resolutions are already beginning to feel daunting. It’s a relief, then, to not believe in resolutions but to instead embrace the notion that life is an ongoing work in progress. When we understand wellness as a lifestyle rather than a bulleted list of items to complete, we allow ourselves to see the interconnectedness of physical, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual wellness, and we take better care of ourselves.
As we progress into 2017, we’ve created a free guide to inspire you to prayerfully consider each facet of health as you continue on your path to greater wellness and wholeness. It details physical, intellectual, spiritual, and emotional wellness along with examples of thought leaders for each, resources to help you improve, and tables/charts for you to privately map out your own plan to improve your wellness.
We’d be lying if we were to promote a formula for wellness. We’d be deceitful if we made it seem like a heavy chore, the way giving up sugar or committing to x-minutes on the treadmill can sometimes feel. The truth is: there’s no right way to do this. There’s only a promise that you can make to yourself to simply be well and to renew that promise daily.
Because our health and wellness shouldn’t be a burden, it should be a process on which we embark joyfully, in 2017 and in the years to come. There’s no beginning and end, but always a continuation. And 2017 is just beginning.
