I am happy to announce that I am officially a writer at Examiner.com. More specifically, I specialize as the Seattle Wellness Examiner, writing a minimum of four new pieces per week. I am eager to use two of my great passions – writing and health – to encourage positive changes in the wellness of others.
According to Wikipedia, “wellness” is generally used to mean a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being. Wellness can also be described as “the constant, conscious pursuit of living life to its fullest potential.”
I write articles that inspire others to take better care of their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. We all deserve to live life to its fullest potential, but, sadly, many people can not remember (or have never known) how great it feels to be in good health. Everyone has the ability to vastly improve their quality of life by focusing on wellness, but not everyone has the time or knowledge to figure out HOW to start.
This is where I come in.
I do not write articles presenting nearly-impossible, time-consuming, or overly expensive therapies that promise wellness. I am a bargain hunter and a serious researcher, eager to share my findings with my neighbors, hoping to encourage greater well-being across my city, my country, and my planet for people of all ages.
Little changes can go a long way, whether it be cutting out artificial sweeteners, meditating for five minutes each morning, taking a brisk walk at lunch, or treating yourself to a massage every once in a while. It’s the little changes that we can actually wrap our heads around, implement, and use to change our lives.
After all, the better we feel, the happier we are as individuals. Happiness is contagious and a genuine smile can light up someone’s day. To some, this may initially seem like a trivial pursuit in the light of the world’s problems, but I beg to differ. Healthy people comprise mindful cities, mindful cities become strong nations, and strong nations contribute positively to the global community.
