Happy Wednesday everyone, and welcome back to Wellness Wednesday!
You guys are going to be proud of me — For next year, I’m actually attempting to do a content calendar for the blog rather than flying by the seat of my pants. Hard to believe, right???
Of course that means deciding ahead of time what I’m going to be addressing in both my regular posts and the Wellness Wednesday posts. What I’d like to do is provide the wellness information you need and are looking for in the Wednesday posts.
With that in mind, I’d like to know:
- What’s your biggest wellness challenge?
- What wellness topics would you like to see more information on? Keep in mind that wellness encompasses dimensions of physical, emotional, financial, spiritual, environmental, social, intellectual, and occupational wellness.
- What are some of your wellness goals for the new year?
- How can I help?
As I mentioned in the post A Time For Change, I want to make this a resource for you, a place you can come to join others on our journey to wellness, but in order to do that, I have to know what you really need.
That’s where the questions above come in. If you could answer one or more of them for me, hopefully that will help us focus in on the areas of wellness we need to spend more time on this coming year.
I know it may seem early to be focusing on the new year already, but I tend to procrastinate, so I have to at least get started early. My husband and son love to tell the story of the time I bought some tapes called, “How To Stop Procrastinating” at a conference and then found them a year later, still wrapped in cellophane, sitting on my bookshelf. Perhaps working on that needs to be one of my goals for the upcoming year…
As for the rest of this year, please be kind to yourself this holiday season. Although this is a joyous time for many, there are also many who feel sad, stressed out, or overwhelmed. If we’re in the second category, we then have the added guilt of not being happy when we feel we’re “supposed to” be. Please know that it’s okay to have these feelings, and if you need some help processing them, reach out for help. You never have to suffer alone.
Joan at My Best Friend Adeline wrote a wonderful post this week, Surviving The Holiday Blues. I would encourage you to pop over to her blog and check it out. She gives some great pointers for both the ‘holiday blues’ and the more serious Seasonal Affective Disorder.
I hope the rest of your year is peaceful, filled with love and laughter, and spent with the people you love.
Please don’t forget to let me know what you’d like to see for next year’s Wellness Wednesday posts in the comments!
