Wellness is something attainable to all people, despite age, disease, disability or adversity. Even within the toughest of circumstance, through the application of wellness tools and practices, we can attain a sense of wellness.
Self-awareness, education, skills and self-compassionate practice are the path to mastering our human form and thriving within ourselves so that we lead lives of rich meaning, quality, value and full potential. This is something that can be taught to and embodied by all. It can also be really fun and rewarding.
At the heart of it, real wellness asks us to understand ourselves, our environment, and their relationship, and to engage in value-driven action. We need the courage to change what is called for, some serenity to accept what is not able to shift and the awareness and wisdom to know the difference.
Wellness is not gained from kicking goals; it is something we actively cultivate for ourselves along our life journey by embodying the traits and behaviours we wish for and need.
