Holiday Depression? Fitness helps!

Plenty of people have situational depression and anxiety during the 'Happy" Holiday season. Sometimes it is because they are lonely, miss loved ones, or have no loved ones to miss.

Whatever the reason, even a brisk walk around the block can make a difference in mood.

Research shows that ten minutes of vigorous exercise can make a significant difference in your attitude, and significantly relieve situational depression.
So, just pretend I'm chasing you around the block, and you will feel much better.

We hear the term “wellness” being tossed around, but what does it mean?

 Wellness is the quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as the result of deliberate effort.

Making a conscious decision to be healthy in body and mind is the true key to wellness, and it is my career path to point out useful things you can choose to do that will increase your personal wellness

* Wellness is a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential

* Wellness is multidimensional and holistic, encompassing lifestyle, mental and spiritual well-being, and the environment

* Wellness is positive and affirming

* Wellness is an active process through which people become aware of, and make choices toward, a more successful existence.

How do we apply wellness?

We do so when we contribute to the well-being of our community, by having a sense of positive direction, engage in regular physical activity, good eating habits, and living a life of love and vitality,

It is my goal and purpose to help you increase wellness in your life, and that's what you will find in every post on my blog.  

With years of profession experience and my love for assisting others to achieve their full potential, I hope my blog contributes to your personal wellness.

1 ) Start with a little

~ One of the biggest mistakes people make is to attempt to workout an hour each day for five times per week;
it is best to start small. 10 minutes twice a day or 30 minutes per day with 15 in the morning and 15 in the evening

2 ) Schedule it

~ Most people assume that since their mornings are crazy they can just do it
when they get home. However, this does not always work.
Often by the time you get home at the end of the day you’re
tired and the last thing you want to do is workout.
 It is best to schedule it for the morning. Also, an added benefit
is that after you workout in the morning, you will be more conscience
 of how you’re eating, what you’re doing, etc. for the rest of the day.
 You generally make healthier decisions.

3) Water

~ Drinking water is one of the best things you can do for you body. I
t can also help you tone up and lose weight –
have a glass of water each time you begin to feel hungry and right before meals.

4 ) Vitamin

~ Take a daily vitamin. Although the body cannot absorb the
 vitamins and minerals from a pill as well as it can from food, it will still help.

5 ) Fruits & Vegetables

~ These are vital to your health, but most people do not get their daily serving.
 If you don’t normally eat very many, start by increasing your daily intake
by one fruit/veggie and then slowly continue to increase it.

6 ) Sleep

~ In this crazy fast-paced world, most people are not getting enough sleep.
Unfortunately, it is vital to your health, so it’s time to make the time for it.
Look at it this way, if you don’t take top notch care of your body,
 you won’t be able to get any of the things you need to get done in the long run.

7 ) Be Positive

~ Think positively. Instead of criticizing yourself day in and day out
, take time at least once a day to say something good about yourself.
If you can’t think of anything, ask your significant other, family, or close friends. I’m sure they’ll have plenty to say.

8 ) Eat frequently

~ Eat 4-6 times per day. Not only does it keep your metabolism
 going so you continue to burn calories, but it will also keep you from getting overly hungry and downing your at every meal.

9 ) One choice per day

~ Make one conscious healthy choice per day. This can be as simple as
ignoring those food cravings and not eating a burger and fries, or
 skipping a rich dessert and having a sweet piece of fruit instead.

10 ) Believe 

in yourself!
