STEP 1 Modelling Wellness
One step at a time
The beauty of taking one step at a time is captured in the image above. The start point is a stair, a single, linear structure, with depth and strength. Alone it represents a single step in a single direction. As we travel from one step to another, we build momentum and the structure shifts. Linear becomes curve, stair become staircase, and as we move along, one step at a time the journey becomes a collaboration of structure and energy.
Now consider lets your wellbeing.
Firstly, what does wellbeing mean to you? What are the components of wellbeing that are important to you? Is it Nutrition? Exercise? Mindfulness? Or healthy relationships? Is it weekend exercise and a couple of days eating whatever you like? Or is it challenging yourself to a fitness goal that takes you out of your comfort zone and beyond your limits?
Secondly, how did you get to those ideals? Was it family behavioural patterns? Was it because of a particular experience? How old were you? What happened? Who are you now?
Maybe you decided that you needed a 6 pack, or a particular fat/muscle ratio or a tiny bum to embody health and wellbeing? Or maybe it was…. Why did you decide that meditation wasn’t for you and that adrenalised workouts that pushed you to your limits were the best way to be living a well life?
Thirdly, once you have understood how your wellness ideals have been formed, ask yourself are they still relevant now? How would you like your wellbeing to look now? In this very moment? What do you want to achieve? How do you want to live? How do you want to be?
Because believe it or not, with very little effort and through reflection/ inspiration you have all the tools you need to make a change.
And just like the spiral staircase, you can take your linear structure, add a single step, build momentum and move toward your goals.
Each journey of a new habit starts us on a path, that leads us elsewhere. The beginning never reflecting the end point, and the journey gently shifting as we create change and build momentum.
