New Year, New Focus

Happy New Year everyone. Okay, I know it’s time for resolutions. Here’s what I’m working on this year. I want to be more resourceful. I’ve always been enterprising but I have a feeling being even more strategic will come in handy this year. I plan on blogging about how to save money, manage energy and completing goals. Are you with me? A friend of mine recently shared with me Adventist Health System’s eight principles of wellness.

They are: Choice, Rest, Environment, Activity, Trust, Interpersonal Relationships, Outlook, and Nutrition.

Here’s the breakdown:
Choice is the first step toward improved health because people who believe they are in control over their own lives are healthier and live longer.

Rest is good sleep and also taking time to relax. Relaxation lowers blood pressure and reduces stress.

Environment is our external world but also affects what happens within us for the better or worst.

Activity includes physical and mental conditioning. Our goal is to be active in mind, body and spirit.

Trust in God speaks to the relationship between spirituality and healing. A link exists between faith and wellness.

Interpersonal relationships strengthen our well being. Social connection fortifies our resolve and improves our health.

Outlook creates our reality. Our mind influences our body and our attitude impacts our health.

Nutrition is the fuel that drives the whole system. Small improvements and strategic substitutions produce profound results.

These are improvements I can live with. For more information, check out http://www.creationhealth.com/CREATION-Health
