I feel I have to give my blogging story a beginning.
Perhaps I’ve read too many books by Donald Miller, who tells us that life is story. Or perhaps we’re just wired to want to know how things got their beginning. Either way, here is where I start.
I once blogged, several years ago now. Interestingly, I wrote about the same topic, health and wellness.
I’m not surprised. You see, I’m quite passionate about wellness.
What is wellness? The dictionary defines it as “the state or condition of being in good physical and mental health.”
I’m thrilled that mental health is included in the definition of wellness, as that is my area of so called expertise. I say “so called” because I believe that we all are just travelers on this journey called life and we can learn something from everyone. Education can teach us many things, but so does life if we pay attention and validate what we know to be our truths.
Both mental and physical health are important to wellness.
My purpose here is to talk about ways of achieving both. Many of these ways will come out of my own personal journey, and will include some of the struggles, and most definitely the victories.
Like all of us, I don’t have all the answers, but throughout my life I have been on the path of self discovery and learning. I hope to share that here.
Just some of the topics I hope to cover include: autoimmune issues, eating for health, anxiety, depression, relationship health, self care and much more!
