Struggling To Feel Well, No Matter What You Do? Try These 3 Simple Steps

(Contributed Post)

When it comes to wellness, it’s important to realize that it is a journey, not a destination. Not even wellness coaches, personal trainers, nutritionists or celebrities “arrive” at wellness — it is a constant search, a continuing journey towards finding the best lifestyle. 

For many people, the search for wellness is truly frustrating — to the point where many have given up trying to feel or be well. There are many fads, misleading diets, intense exercise regimes or quick-fix plans that promise better things for a person, and rarely deliver on that promise.

In this post, we will take a look at how you can truly feel better by exploring holistic, realistic ways of moving towards wellness.

Let’s get started!

Slowly alter your toxic habits

If you are searching for ways to make changes to your lifestyle, radical choices is not a sustainable solution. While taking it slowly can be frustrating, gradually shifting your toxic habits is the best in the long run.

Whether these toxic habits deal with your relationships, your food and diet intake, your exercise or perhaps your social life, it is important to alter them slowly. 

For example, if you are trying to reduce the intake of processed foods in your diet, you can start by eliminating just one snack or limiting your calories by 100-200 per week, and build upon it slowly. That way, you will be less likely to snap and binge on the foods you’re eliminating.

Don’t make changes alone

Making big life changes by yourself can be very challenging. If you feel weak and want to return to your old habits, it is easier to revert back to old ways if you don’t have any support in your wellness journey.

That’s why it is important to involve others in your life in this process. While it can be difficult to be vulnerable in front of others, a group wellness program or therapy appointment can help you open up with a support network around you.

Forgive yourself for past mistakes

One of the areas that often inhibits positive change is remaining in an old mindset, or having ongoing regret over past actions. While it is totally understandable to feel down about past mistakes, staying angry with yourself will only prevent you from changing those behaviors. 

That’s why forgiving yourself for past mistakes is so important. While it is not easy, through self reflection, positive habits and mutual support with friends, family and colleagues, you can gradually move towards wellness through self forgiveness.

Final Thoughts

If you are struggling to feel well no matter what you do, it’s time to try a different approach. Remember: wellness is not something that is ever fully achieved. Instead, it is a lifelong journey, one that is well worth the effort!
