..I Choose Wellness


August is National Wellness Month and I encourage you to make a plan that includes daily wellness activities.  Every day you have a choice to be as healthy as you can be.  Choose wellness every day.  Make that conscious effort to take more steps, to move more, to breathe, to exercise, to eat more veggies, to drink more water, to get more sleep and to spend time smiling, laughing and being with friends and family.  To get you thinking, I have included a long list of simple activities you can integrate into your day.  Pick 30 of them and write them down in your calendar for August as a reminder to complete (each day).  Grab a friend and get them to do this with you!  Taking care of yourself is not selfish but it is the best way then to go out and take care of those you need to: your spouse, family members, friends, neighbors and even strangers.
