Happy Wednesday! This week’s #WellfieWednesday post is brought to you by @AaronPerezPT. Enjoy!
"Wellness" continues to be an ever-expanding market and topic. Even the term seems to stir up some controversy, and it seems some folks in the wellness industry prefer “well-being” over “wellness.” Though we’re not here to debate, but rather celebrate! So, I thought I’d create a friendly challenge regarding elements of wellness for our readers. Below are 5 elements which are fairly comprehensive components of well-being. It’s worth mentioning that these components are pillars for Pro-Activity and endorsed by @TheAPHPT, however, the challenges and views of this blog are solely mine. Just wanting to give credit where credit is due as I did not come up with these elements. Choose one or more element challenges from below and let the #WellfieCrew know how it went!
#Move – Test your 12 minute walk or run test. How much ground can you cover in 12 minutes? #Go!
#Fuel - Try a new vegetable #EatMorePlants
#Recover – Do 5 or more minutes of active relaxation. Ideas are deep breathing, yoga or stretching, or a nature walk. #TreatYoSelf
#Endure – Try a physical activity you haven’t done in at least 6 months. A great way to practice your #endure is through your #move. It reminds me of a quote I like, “In today’s world where comfort is king, arduous physical activity is a rare opportunity to practice suffering.”
#Connect – Say hello to a new face. #ShakeAHandMakeAFriend
Have fun with the challenges and have an awesome #WellfieWednesday!
