11 Perspectives on Wellness & Health
Have you ever had those days where your motivation to take care of your wellness routine just disappears? Well, I’ve put together a few quotes from the team at 360Wellness as well as other individuals in the fitness/nutrition/health industry to help you prioritise your overall wellness and feel the best version of yourself.
Cyril, Chief Product Officer at 360Wellness
“It’s crucial to find your own motivation(s) keeping you well on the long term”
“Being well has more impact than imagined, in the time (short- and long-term effects) and space (cross effects physical-mental-social)”
“It’s crucial to listen to you along the way (psycho and body reactions), do not just apply things”
“Alongside, it’s crucial to keep an eye/ear on new ideas, not being hermetic”
“Wellness is not acquired, it’s not a recipe, it’s a process”
Mik Zazon, Body Positive Activist (Instagram: mikzazon)
“Shame on society for making us believe our worth is measured in pounds.”
“I used to be obsessed with losing weight, exercising and counting calories. Until [...] I said YES to recovery. I gained weight and i started dancing more, LIVING more, celebrating my body.”
Kevin, Chief Executive Officer at 360Wellness
"Where health is the destination, wellness is the journey."
"Consistency is what takes something you do one day and turns it into a lifestyle."
"Regardless of what your goals are, action is the precursor to motivation. Action comes first, motivation comes after."
Jennifer Rollin, Eating Disorder Therapist (Instagram: jennifer_rollin)
“Your ideal weight is whatever weight you reach when you are mindfully nourishing yourself with food and movement that you actually enjoy, fully engaging in life”
“Stop complimenting people for weight loss as if it’s the greatest thing they can do.”
"Wellness is about being happy, satisfied and content with where you are in your journey of life."
"Wellness is the doing and well-being is the acknowledgement and understandings of these doings. The former is a set of day-to-day habits and behaviors while the latter is our state of mind in response to them."
“Why do we hate certain parts of our physical body so much? Why are we thought that skin needs to look smooth and firm in order to be considered beautiful? Why don’t we look at our bodies as beautiful unique pieces of art that are so different and special? Every scar, every roll of skin, every spot - it is imperfectly perfect. I am happy about that and you can be too.”
Denis, Chief Digital Officer at 360Wellness
“Finding the right balance between mind, body and spirit for your true self to align as one!”
Roger Federer, Tennis Player
“There is no way around hard work. Embrace it.”
“Once you find that peace, that place of peace and quiet, harmony and confidence, that’s when you start playing your best.”
Danae, Journalist (Instagram: danaemercer)
“Your body, however it shows up, is NOT shameful.You are flesh and bone but more than that, you’re an incredible, powerful whole. One made up of a SOUL and SMILE and STRENGTH so much greater than their SHAME could ever hope to change. So today, remember that you are worthy. You are incredible. And you do NOT need some weird dodgy weight loss product.”
Michelle Obama, Former First Lady
“Being a healthy woman isn't about getting on a scale or measuring your waistline. We need to start focusing on what matters - on how we feel, and how we feel about ourselves.”
“Always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bodybuilder, Actor
“Just remember, you can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets.”
“The meaning of life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer.”
I hope these quotes helped you look at wellness from different perspectives and how we should honor our body and mind based on what we want to achieve in our health journey. It’s difficult sometimes to find the motivation or the inspiration to love ourselves as we are due to the endless social media posts and dieting products about losing weight and the ‘ideal’ body.
However, our wellness is not simply defined by a number on a scale, but it consists of many different parts of our routine and the 360Wellness Tracker gives you an effective overview of that. It combines different sections that make up our overall wellness in an easy and complete manner, so you can take care of your mind and body and keep track of your progress.
The combination of the 360Wellness Tracker and these quotes will hopefully help you look at your own wellness and health and prioritise them to feel the best version of yourself.
