Take a moment to think about everything you do in a single day. Consider your passions, hobbies and how you like to spend your free time. Perhaps you are passionate about baking or love to spend your free time chasing your grandkids around the park. No matter how you choose to spend your time, all your activities tie into your well-being.
Wellness is important for every stage of life, but it becomes increasingly important as you age. From your physical health to your spiritual well-being, your personal wellness can help protect you from diseases, obesity, depression and other ailments. When you’re feeling healthy and well, you’ll be able to do live the lifestyle you want for longer.
According to the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, wellness encompasses 8 dimensions that all require an equal amount of attention in order to achieve a true state of well-being.
As you age, it’s necessary that your day-to-day routine include the following 8 dimensions of wellness:
