How Practicing Wellness Can Better Your Life
Life is not about the bottom line. It is not about achieving certain milestones before you die, or carrying on your legacy. Life is exactly what you make of it, and how well you enjoy your time on earth. The happier you are with who you are, what you do, and what you’ve done with your life, the more fulfilled you will be. It is this very fulfillment that we all strive for, but for many, it seems out of our reach.

This happens commonly when we are too stressed to focus on anything except one area of our lives. It could be work, struggles within a relationship, or it could be trying to be a good parent or anything. We are more than one thing, which is why when we only have time for one thing in our lives our mental and physical health suffers. Practicing wellness in the form of healthy living and taking care of your mental health can help you lead a better life by:

Helping You De-Stress

Chronic stress causes tension that can either lead to physical pain or increased risk of serious conditions like heart disease. It is also very hard to work when you are stressed, which is why it’s so important that when you leave work (or whatever your stressor is), you can let it go. Taking breaks during the work period is also a great way to unwind, whether it’s reading a book, taking a walk, or playing a few games on The point is to relax as much as possible. The work will still be there, but by stressing about it, you are actually causing more damage. Instead, take better breaks and find relaxation methods that work for you.

Your goal shouldn’t be to work harder, but to work better. The more you practice wellness, the more you can work productively, instead of struggle.

Help You Be More Productive

De-stressing, of course, is not the only way to be more productive. Other wellness techniques like getting a good night’s sleep, exercising, eating healthy, and learning to put your mental health first can all help you be more productive. That is because the healthier and more alert your brain is, the easier you will find it to work.

On the flip side, there are several productivity techniques that you can use that can, in turn, improve your wellness. Working in 90-minute cycles, for instance, can give your brain a break it sorely needed. Work for 90 minutes, take a break, come back and do another task.

Improving Your Outlook

By putting yourself first, you place greater emphasis on your happiness. You need to learn to say no and to recognize unhealthy aspects of your life. This could be your lifestyle, your diet, or even that one toxic friend that always makes you feel worse about yourself. The point is that by practicing wellness and by putting yourself first you can improve your life overall, including your outlook.
