Hi! I'm Riley Brown! I make it a mission of mine to write health and fitness blogs to help educate others on the many facts and information out there. I also give tips to help improve your fitness and health habits to transform your lifestyle into a much healthier one.
This week I've decided to look more into wellness, since it's so important in our daily lives. To understand how important it is we have to know what it is? What's wellness, you ask? Your total wellness is made up of three types of wellness: social, physical, and mental/emotional. Social wellness is how you interact with people in social situations, including with your friends and family.

Physical wellness is how you take care of your body, including exercise, nutrition, and hygiene. Why does all of this matter to your health? If all of your wellness levels are okay, you will have a longer life expectancy and a better quality of life. Let me put this into perspective for you if you don't realize how important your overall wellness is. Your personal fitness and wellness (total wellness) benefits you in multiple ways:Decreasing the risks of diseaseLonger life
Possible improvement in grades (if you're still in school)Increased confidenceBetter sleepReduced depressionStronger and healthier bones If the benefits of improving your wellness isn't convincing enough, then let me give you the cons of your total wellness being low: "approximately 3.2 million deaths each year are attributable to insufficient physical activity" and "8 million people die each year
due to mental illness" (your mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being). If you're wondering 'What can I do to increase my wellness', there are many simple things you can do. To improve your wellness you can take care of yourself-- including practicing good hygiene, getting sufficient rest, physical activity, and a healthy diet. There are more tips to help improve your social wellness and become a better person (which therefore increases your wellness). The first one is knowing and acknowledging your strengths and weaknesses; focus
on your strengths and improve on your weaknesses. You can be a good friend by spending quality time and listening to the other person. Take responsibility for your mistakes (your mistakes are nothing to be embarrassed about). My last tip is to honor your commitments; don't back out of things you've commited to.Sources: www.who.int/https://www.mentalhealth.gov/www.nimh.nih.gov
