Wellness Attitude and Winterizing Fitness (Quality Life Forum Support Series) Health Coaching Session, January 2017
For individual wellbeing, you may have to find your own “fit” solutions, based on life situation and personal values. Wellness attitude matters a great deal, as health start with mindset.
Five-Pointer Wellness Attitude
Listen to your body – If you are not aware of your body senses and feelings may be cut off from an important life source. What your mind want and what your body need may not be the same. What happens when mind, body and spirit are disconnected? You feel lost, fearful, insecure, fatigue, may also experience depression and pain. What’s the difference when mind, body, and spirit are harmonized? You feel calm, in control, energetic, and hopeful. Be conscious about your body needs, connect your mind with body, and keep up your spirits.
Be open-minded and flexible – the “un-known” is acceptable; being aware that we can’t totally control life. Are you living at the present time for the fullest personal potential? Don’t have to pursuit for happiness of an ideal life, but finding your own way to live happily.
Simplify life for happiness – want for less (possessions, positions, profits, etc), focus on perusing what worth for living and gain life satisfaction.
Build strong immune systems - Illness is not always requiring medical treatment and treatments are almost always associated with risks. About 30% illnesses will naturally heal; another 30% are not treatable; for the rest, only proper medical interventions would benefit health.
Healthy body weight - Body weight does not tell about your health. Each person has a biological baseline weight. Not everyone can survive at 120 lb ideal weight. Care your body and nurture it to perform your personal best. Create your own healthy body image.
Special notes for individuals and families who are coping with illness: focusing on quality of life is more important than “cure” the disease. The five-pointer are essential for your mindset adjustment. Illness is part of human life and we all have natural capacity to recover or adapt. You are free to live with your normal life style and enjoy your favorite things. Take one step at a time to resolve complicated issues. Reserve your rights for choosing the best medical decision for yourself (or loved ones). You can count on compassionate support from Quality Life Forum and many other resources.
Winter joy is the New Year’s blessing. Let’s celebrate the New Year with winterizing fitness -
The outdoor trails are naturally more challenging than the treadmills. The nature connection will energize your body and fresh your mind.
Don’t let the post-holiday blues and cold weather stop your outdoor activities. Bundle up and enjoy the cold air in the winter sun. Yes, you may feel heavier with the winter gear on, just think it will add on as weight training benefit.
When the weather is bad, take an outdoor break. Prevent fall and injury is the key safety measure. An anti-skid, insulated, and water proof footwear is a winter safety essential.
Indoor activities are unlimited, whether going to gym or not; home training with DVD or online exercises, try yoga and tai chi, join a dance class, and much more. Make your workout enjoyable. No excuse to be a couch potato.
Track your workout for cardio, strength, core/abs, balance, and flexibility. A balanced routine will benefit your overall fitness.
Keep up the nutrition for energy and food is the source for body heat. Drink hot tea.
As the winter nights are longer, your body will naturally sleep more. Let it be and get adequate rest.
Knowing there is still no cure for a common cold (I really wish a miracle drug had born from modern medical research by now). Medications are useful for relieves the symptoms only. If you got a cold, rest and water are essential. You will get well with or without a Doctor.
Hope you will enjoy winter fitness with continued wellness effort in 2017. Feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org your health coaching needs
