There’s not too much more to be excited about in the NCAA basketball tournament since most brackets were broken by so many upsets over the last few days. An infinitesimal amount of brackets are still perfect, but there won’t be any at the end of the tournament. So, just enjoy the games and don’t worry about your team getting beat by an unknown.
Moving on to wellness. Why is it that so many people only think about wellness after they get sick? The whole idea of wellness is preventative care so you feel good and not sick. Why do people wait until they’re sick before they do anything about their health. Usually for the same reason they don’t do any preventative maintenance on their car and wait until something expensive breaks.
This is a mentality of avoidance. If you’re not thinking about it then nothing’s going to happen. This is an attitude that will get you into trouble. You can’t avoid something by pretending it’s not there. Your wellness is something you should think about each day when you wake up.
Take an inventory of your wellness; how do you feel, are you breathing clearly, can you move without pain, do you have little inconveniences that hurt you throughout the day. These are all things to watch for. By being aware of your wellness each day it allows you to plan for wellness the next day. However, most people think that if it’s not broken don’t try to fix it. This never applies to your wellness and future quality of life.
QUESTION: What should readers take away from this message today?
ANSWER: That wellness is something that prevents illness in the future.
QUESTION: Why is this information timely?
ANSWER: This information is timely because we live in an illness mentality society. You are bombarded with drug ads that tell you that you either have a disease, or to start preparing because you will have it in the future.
QUESTION: How can readers best apply this information to their lives right now?
ANSWER: Turn the volume off on every pharmaceutical advertisement you hear on TV. Pretend just for a day, or a week, or a month that you have control over your health and wellness and start taking preventative steps to insure your quality of life in the future.
COMMENTARY: Most people gauge their wellness by those closest to them at any given time. It starts with family members, the eating habit you grew up with and whether you were athletic or not. Then, when you become an adult work takes over and you create all kinds of excuses for a bad diet and not exercising. Add the bad habits of the people you live and work with and it seems normal to neglect your health and wellness. It used to be that health insurance would carry you when you got sick, but those days are gone. Now, either people change their attitude toward their health and wellness, or their future will be very bleak indeed.
