Now that school is coming to an end for the year and summer is about to begin, I decided that I wanted to start my “summer of wellness” (at least that’s what I’m calling it. Of course, these 3 months could be taken out of any time of the year, but since I’ve been so busy with university and other work (like trying to effectively run this blog) it’s hard for me to find time to focus completely on my well-being. I think that in Western culture we have the tendency to ignore personal health to get ahead in our careers or by focusing on outside aspects of life (and yes, I know, this is pretty well known in the wellness universe). I know that in my own life, with juggling school, creating a future career, and also managing a social life, I fall into the constant trap of ill-health due to stress and overworking myself. I know that I’m still going to have responsibilities this summer (like a job and two online summer courses) …
Since about September of 2017, I really started to think about if there was a way (or ways) that I could prevent future disease, while also being my healthiest self in the present. I’ve been a vegan/vegetarian for the last 3 years, depending on whether I was at university or not, but I still felt like there was something more that I could be doing.
Now that we’re over a month into 2018, I wanted to talk about how the goals that we set for this year can be translated into our daily habits in a healthy and positive way.
Hello! Usually I only write one post per week, but because I wanted to give y’all a bullet journal update (which you can find here), I thought it would be nice to also have a more substantial and meaningful post for the week. I had the opportunity to be a lazy bum, but I ultimately decided not to take it even though an hour of watching Netflix definitely tempted me. Anyway, this week I want to talk about something that I’ve honestly only recently encountered over the last couple of days. But while I’ve been thinking about it, I thought that it was an idea that I really wanted to put out there to start a discussion about (whether that’s with me, other people, or just yourself).
