Wellness of the body occurs when all the body processes, physical and mental are functioning at the peak levels. What does it take to achieve a complete body wellness? It
requires more than simply taking a trip to the gym, or a walk in the park.
To evaluate our state of wellness, we must establish the goals we achieve through being well.
We make our lives more enriched and easier to live. We are able to reap the benefits of well thought out plans of diet and exercise many years into our life, just because we have taken
the time to remain well and fit.
Your immune system is a tale tell sign of your state of wellness and one of the real benefits of a healthy, well immune system is the prolonging of the onset of many age-related diseases. Conditions such as macular degeneration, Alzheimer’s, strokes, heart attacks, and overall feelings of good health depend upon a healthy immune system.
Our ability to continue in a normal routine many years past the accepted age of retirement is a goal achieved through maintaining a state of wellness. To many older people,
their work becomes a genuine source of enjoyment. Work no longer appears as the thief of ou free time, it becomes an old friend that we are accustomed to visiting with. It can become a reason to continue to get up and go about our day. Either way, our ability to continue participating is a direct benefit of our state of wellness and continued good health.
In evaluating our wellness goals, and state of being, the mental capacity for continued learning, teaching, and experiencing is a top priority. Mental sharpness comes from continued
use of the mind to learn, communicate and think. The benefit of retaining those resources is felt
even longer than the benefit of physical wellness.
Physical benefits of wellness?
The peace of mind that comes from
knowing your body is in top shape, ready to deal whatever comes along, is a priceless possession. To be able to ascertain that you’ve spent your day wisely, and invested in yourself is
a real accomplishment. The benefit seen from adding just 20 minutes of exercise to your daily routine are unbelievable. I can attest to the tremendous increase in energy, as a participant in walking for exercise. I had been dieting for almost two months, with very little in the way of results. Walking was suggested by my physician, and I’ve never been so impressed. My energy levels were three
times what they were prior to beginning the exercise program. Increased energy levels are one
of the greatest benefits of a well and fit body.
