What Does Health & Wellness Mean to the Ambassadors?

Health and wellness involves developing a wholesome lifestyle. Taking conscious efforts to live deliberately amidst the countless distractions we face daily. Committing daily to make choices that only benefit the health of the body and the state of the mind. Taking down every form of negativity and choosing to permit only edifying thoughts that translate to right actions and habits. Health and wellness means having a healthy body, esteem and a sound mind.

Making choices that benefit the body physically, mentally, and emotionally is the key to health and wellness. In order to live your best life, you must take care of yourself; extracting negativity will put you in a happy state of mind, and monitoring what your body takes in will bring you good health. Your lifestyle choice is both a personal decision and an ongoing process to keep up positive health and wellness.

Health is a balance of choices. It’s choosing the “right” things without feeling guilty about indulging once in awhile. It’s being happy and knowing that you’re making progress in all aspects of your health and understanding that that progress will not always be linear. Overall, health is just doing what’s best for yourself and those around you. .
