Creating Your Vision and Map for Success
What is a Wellness Map and Wellness Vision?
• A Wellness Map is the tool that contains both the destination (wellness vision) and the route (weekly goals). We use this tool to give us direction and help us stay on course when we are changing our lifestyle behaviors and losing weight.
• A wellness vision is a general statement about what you want in the longer term with respect to your health and well-being.
• A wellness vision is a general statement about what you want in the longer term (1, 2 or 5 years) with respect to your health and well-being.
• Wellness is much more than the absence of disease. It can relate to your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
• Mastery of your health and wellness doesn’t happen naturally. We need to plan and take action to improve and maintain our health.
• To function and think well so that I can enjoy life. I want to go places and do things with a feeling of energy and wellness. I want to be active so that I can be involved in more community events. • To establish healthy eating habits and regular physical activity habits so that I can be a good role model for my children.
• I want to take charge of my health so that my blood pressure and blood sugar are within a healthy range so that I can get off some of my prescription medications. • I want to lose 30 pounds, so my diabetes doesn’t worsen and progress to the complications like many of my family members. I also want to play with my grandchildren.
