Five areas to focus on for overall wellness.


I have found myself pausing from pushing content lately because there is so much noise in the health and wellness world.

So many people telling you what you should and shouldn't eat or do. It's overwhelming, isn't it? How is someone to know what is right for them? We are all bio-individual and what works for you or me, may not work for him or her.

Fortunately, there are FIVE key areas that I find most important no matter what approach you take to your overall wellness, so I thought I would share those.


Each one of these things, if focused on, will improve your health. Even if you just focus on one at a time and then build on with another.

If you can't harvest it from the earth in its natural form, question it. Plants, meats, fats. It really is that simple. If a pre-packaged or commercially prepared food has more than 5 ingredients or you can't pronounce one of the ingredients, it's probably not real food.

Drink pure filtered water daily. Half your body weight in ounces is a good place to start, not exceeding 1 gallon. Add a pinch of sea salt here and there for electrolytes and absorption, and always drink your water away from meals.

Move your body every day. If you want to use it, you must move it. Walk, stretch, run, yoga, workout, play with kids or pets. It doesn't matter, just move.

Often overlooked in our busy society, but sleep is just as important as food, water, and exercise. Some people thrive on 7 hours, some need 10 hours. Be intentional and make the time for rest and sleep.

Gratitude and positivity are powerful. Negativity breeds negativity and positivity breeds positivity. Every single day find something to be grateful for, and express that gratitude and positivity to others. It's infectious and has the power to chemically change the make-up in your brain making you a happier note positive person overall.
