The End of Wellness
by MW Cook
End of the month! End of Wellness?
I started the project as a way to find out what would happen if I lived well. The biggest thing I learn, however, is that wellness is complicated. It’s also kinda simple.
It’s simple in that the steps to wellness are relatively clear. If I eat right, live right, socialize right and love right, things will turn out right. It’s complicated in that I seriously don’t want to do any of that. Resistance is a tough enemy.
So now that the challenge is over, I find myself faced with the question of how I’m going apply all of this to my life. I think I’m just going to try to stay well. Moderation will come back into play, which will be nice, because I missed some things. But I’m going to try to keep my eye on wellness. Because things did turn better when I lived better. I dropped the ball many times throughout the month (perhaps because I tried to throw out moderation). And that added guilt on top of the stress of it all. Hopefully with moderation instead of severe regulations, that can be taken care of.
Conclusion: We were made to live in a certain way. When we try to live that way, things tend to turn out better. Yay for wellness.
