Be Preventative and Proactive with our Community:  

Take Health & Well-Being Into Your Own Hands  

There’s plenty of fad diets, workout routines, and influencers touting the latest, greatest, wonder-whatever, all promising health and wellness. 

The truth is, there is no one-size fits all approach, and there certainly is NOT an “easy,” route, especially if you refuse to change your diet, habits, or lifestyle. 

According to the CDC, 41.9% of American Adults are considered obese, an increase of more than 10% from the beginning of the millennia. To expect to live a life of well-being or wellness under what is common or easily accepted is a recipe for disaster when most people don’t truly know what is and is not healthy. 

The Good News: You CAN Become Educated on Healthful Lifestyles!   

Read on for 10 ways to build a lifestyle of well-being… 

Preventative & Proactive Forward  

Start with a Positive Relationship with Yourself  

As you might have guessed by now, it’s important for you to live a lifestyle that is focused on health and well-being, you cannot simply wake up and wish for it to happen…  

You must have a healthy relationship with yourself; your body; the way you move, think, and talk about yourself, your inner self-talk; how you interact with others, your community; and how you feel about your place in the world. Likely you, or a loved one, has tuned out these self-thoughts and questions, using food or unhealthy behaviors as a coping mechanism…  

It’s easy to get wrapped up in life, to focus solely on the needs of others, and many other excuses, but our bodies are temples, and we MUST stay attuned to such for a life of well-being. We must strive to be preventative and proactive! 

“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So, glorify God in your body.” – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 

But having a positive and healthy relationship with yourself allows you to make better decisions about what you eat, think, and do on a daily basis, which ultimately encompasses living a life towards well-being! 

Care for the Mind, Body, & Soul— 


10 Ways to Build a Lifestyle of Well-Being  

1. Drink More Water 

This is an easy one, and likely one you’ve heard time and time again: add more water to your daily routine! Adding water to your schedule is simple, add a few timers to your phone or watch to help remind you! 

2. Eat Fewer Processed Foods 

Do you live off of frozen, quick-and-easy meals? Try adding two days a week where you eat locally grown or fresh foods to your routine. You’ll find your body starts to crave the good stuff; you can work your way up to eating more whole, fresh foods!  

3. Take Vitamins  

Make sure you check-in with your doctor and get your labs done annually, that way you can know your body better! By having your bloodwork done, your doctor can help you to know what vitamins can help you to live a life towards wellness and balance! 

4. Care for Your Skin 

Both men and women need to take daily preventative and proactive steps towards protecting one’s skin. According to Dermatologists, it is important to use a “sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, which blocks 97% of the sun’s UVB rays,” which can cause premature aging and even cancer! 

5. Set Times to Stretch Daily 

You’ve likely heard the adage, “a body in motion, stays in motion,” which is always a fun one to remember about physical wellness! Take two or three small breaks daily to stretch from your head to your toes! 

Wellness is NOT Some FAD, it’s a Lifestyle, and a DAILY Choice at That! 


6. Find a Daily, Mindful Activity  

 Whether you enjoy a nice, warm cup of coffee / tea, a bubble bath, or even doing your makeup,
take some time to do a thoughtful, calming, and refreshing activity, whatever is your style! Habits, hobbies, and thoughtful activities can help us to be more aware of our mental, physical, and spiritual health and well-being!  

7. Pray for Strength & Many Thanks 

When you wake up and before you go to sleep, take some time to further your relationship with the Lord. Before you set your feet on the floor in the AM and before you close your eyes at night, make sure you tell God your worries, fears, and cheers. Take some time to be grateful and thankful, daily! 

8. Check-in with Loved Ones 

Whether your loved ones are near or far, take some time every week to reach out to those you love, it will certainly boost more than just your mood! Connecting with others helps us to feel comforted and heard in both the good and bad times. 

9. Get Your Body Moving 

Add activities to your daily routine to help you get up and moving! You’ll find that common chores, such as mowing the lawn, doing the laundry, or a trip out for groceries can be an opportunity to move and add physical activities to what you are already doing!
