Wellness is Communicable

 

 

What’s mine to do? That’s the question I have asked myself as I observe the fear that is flowing in between the news of viruses and so much uncertainty. As a wellness person for almost five decades, what I know for sure is that what we focus on expands. So, I believe that what’s mine to do is to offer support by creating an International Wellness Awareness Month – starting today! Want to join me in that focus?

I’m going to participate by posting (on my Susan Tate Community Facebook page) the 31 Ways to Nourish Your Mind, Body, and Spirit that are listed in the second edition of my Wellness Wisdom book published in 2011. Please know that I am NOT negating the gravity of any illness–my Pollyanna glasses were shattered years ago . . . My vision is to create and support the focus of more streams of healing and love being added to where we are right now.

The dedication in my Wellness Wisdom book reads:

“To a vision of a peaceful planet through
individual, community, and global wellness.”

To support that vision, I plan to post 1 (or sometimes 2 since it’s already March 6!) ways to nourish your wellness. WELLNESS is communicable. LOVE is communicable.

So here’s where we begin, the title of chapter 1:

  1. Intend to Be Well

Intention is like an arrow flying toward a target.”
—Sonia Choquette

“One of the most powerful steps you can take to enhance your wellness is to simply create the intention to do so. Wellness is about choice. Wellness is the part of our well-being that describes what we have, rather than something we’re lacking. When we’re sick it’s easy to proclaim to anyone who will listen, “I am so sick!” When we are well, we rarely walk around saying, “Oh, I am so well!” But the mind would love to hear this message more often. You might even make wellness communicable simply by talking about it!”
