In the World of Wellness: News You Need

Wellness is a term widely used that has multiple meanings around health and positive life style changes leading to well-being. Here we will use the term "wellness" as a means of defining a life free from disease as well as a way to explore alternative medicines, what they offer, and what this could mean for you.

Every month I'll do a post on a health and wellness related topic. This will give you a chance to explore other options, become informed, and make the best overall decision for your own well-being.

In the World of Wellness: News you need

Unfortunateley, I am feeling more than a bit under the weather friends, and due to that this is going to be a less than stellar post. I didn't want to leave you without anything though, so here are some links I recently received in my email that are important to your mental, emotional, and physical well being.

First off, a blog post from Martha Beck on How to Deal with Transition. I don't know about you, but I've had more than my fair share of transition lately, so I found this one to be particularly interesting. It also fits along very nicely with my current focus on Commanding Your Time.

Here's a blip (blurb? blop?) from the article:

Emma is a poster girl for Newton’s first law of motion: Once she starts doing something, she just keeps doing it until acted upon by some external force. Each day when Emma’s alarm clock rings, she drowsily hits the snooze button several times. The shower, when she finally gets there, is so steamy and fragrant, she lingers twice as long as strictly necessary. She dresses hurriedly, only to check the mirror and change. And so it goes: Coffee savoring takes 15 minutes; lipstick experimentation, five minutes; car key searching, another 10. Emma often arrives at the office late—but that’s okay, because once there, she works into the night, until an external force in the form of her frustrated husband calls to see if she’s alive. Emma stays up late to offer compensatory companionship, ensuring that in the morning, when the alarm clock rings, she’ll be too tired to get up.
People either think Emma is an inconsiderate laggard or they shrug off her chronic difficulty making transitions, give her lavish time cushions, and judge her based on anything but punctuality.
There’s a key difference between people who become irritated with Emma and those who share Emma’s inability to segue from one thing to the next.

And some news on the foods you consume. These are interesting, I promise.
