Why It’s Important for You to Maintain Your Health and Wellness

When you’re so focused on taking care of your family, on maintaining your status in a career, or on building a romantic relationship, it’s easy to neglect the small parts that make up your health and wellness. Too often we skip meals, eat the wrong foods, drink too much alcohol, smoke cigarettes, and more, not even thinking twice about how this is affecting our mind, body, and spirit. Over time, all of these small choices lead up to major impacts – we become riddled with stress and anxiety, depression and insomnia, body aches and more, and it’s unbearable. From there, we either have 2 choices: seek help from a healthcare provider or continue to carry on indulging in things that bring us down further.

Your health and wellness are comprised of 8 dimensions, as explained by the University of California, Davis: emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, occupational, physical, social, and spiritual wellness. For most of us, the last time we can remember learning about health and wellness was during a health class in high school – it’s so important to focus on your health and wellness, however, because it affects your quality of life and how long you live. There are a number of other reasons, too:

  • You’ll be able to better focus on your future rather than the problems of your past
  • Your perspective will shift more towards your life rather than your illnesses or disorders
  • You’ll be able to better connect with yourself and others
  • You’ll feel more positive emotions, like joy and satisfaction
  • You’ll be able to partake in more life events as you get older because you’ll be healthier

To improve your health and wellness, try building more connections, spending more time on activities and hobbies, meditating, eating healthily, and more. Oprah Winfrey recently told Vogue Magazine the importance of wellness by stating, “Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.”
