Wellness Strategies for Success

Looking to learn strategies for wellness. Feeling the weight of worry, anxiety, sadness, pressure and stress? Try one of our strategies.

Practice Movement
  • Move your body: walk, exercise, stretch, dance, yoga 
  • Talk to your medical professional
  • Read a new or favourite book 
  • Watch an inspiring or favourite childhood movie 
  • Do something special for someone 
  • Reconnect with an old friend or relative 
  • Write letters or cards to distant friends and family 
  • Make a wish list of hopes and dreams

Sometimes, you may not have the language to communicate how you are feeling, what you are thinking, and how you are reacting. Movement helps you to express these inner thoughts and feelings, when words just can not.

Be still and know you are stronger than you think
  • Listen to music that makes you feel good 
  • Talk to your medical professional

“Our deepest fear is that…you are powerful beyond measure. Wellness begins when you start putting yourself in a good space and in a practice that keeps you steady throughout life’s challenges.


My Action Plan

Steps to change is closer than you think:

Day 1: Create 3 types of goals for your wellness: IMMEDIATE, SHORT TERM, and FUTURE. Write a list of the strategies you hope to try. Schedule time in your calendar for enacting your goals.

Day 2: Write down all your worries, anxieties and fears about yourself, your future and your wellness. Place the worries in a box. Seal the box. Add new worries when they come. Ask God, the Universe, or whomever you choose to believe to help you contain your worries.

Day 3: Look at the calendar. Find YES days. Days that you say yes to whatever opportunities may come your way. Choose NO days. Days that you will spend placing healthy boundaries on your self-care, your mental health, and your wellness.

Day 4: Try a strategy from your self care goal list. Video-blog how you felt in the activity. Share the strategy with a close friend or family member.

Day 5: Practice imperfection. Notice when you are less than your ideal self. Be compassionate and kind to yourself. Treat your self with something on your self care goal list.

Day 6: Practice gratitude. As you move throughout the day, see how many things, experiences, people, and more that you are thankful for. Mediate, pray and practice mindfulness to bring your attention and focus on all that builds your soul and your wellness.

Day 7: Give back! What a week you have had! Great work for the effort. Beautiful try for the difficult days. Share your joy, your passion, what you learned, and how you grew with someone else. Give Back. Give of yourself to another. Show love in the best way you know how.
