Wellness Wheel and the Ten Keys to Wellness
Rate Yourself by Checking the Wellness Wheel
Let's have some fun now while we check this 'wellness wheel' to see how well you rate when you consider these ten keys to your wellness.
Have you thought about just how well you are? Really thought about it, I mean - or have you just gotten used to feeling OK and have forgotten what it feels like to be enjoying vibrant good health.
So often, I think, we decide that it's to be expected that we don't feel 'on top of the world' - after all, we are getting older!
Just take a few minutes now, and have some fun while you do it, to examine the ten keys to wellness on the 'wellness wheel' and really think about this question of 'how you feel'.
Suppose we take an orange - oranges are very good for us and they do divide nicely into segments - as our 'wellness wheel'. Let's suppose each segment represents one of the ten keys or core elements in our overall plan of wellness.
Some would say that there are many more elements to consider but I think if we can get these ten into balance, we'll be doing well and experiencing wellness.
Consider carefully each of these segments of the wellness wheel orange, what they each stand for and how you see each segment affecting your life.
Where do you see yourself in each of these areas of your life?
How would you rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10?
Think about these ten keys on the wellness wheel one at a time.

Are you happy with your financial situation or are you always on the lookout for some extra cash? Money does matter especially if it's lacking. Here are some work from home solutions for you.
Suppose you decide that as you don't smoke or have any other bad health habits, you exercise regularly and you are very particular about your diet, you rate a near perfect score. Congratulations, you can eat the whole orange segment.
If, on the other hand, you know that you should be doing more exercise, you don't take time to enjoy life and you eat far too many takeaways, you will not rate well and there'll be a lot of that orange segment left.
Take your time, work your way through each segment, evaluate and decide where you may need some help or where you may need to make some changes.
So! What was the verdict? Do you see some room for improvement? ... or is your life in a good state of balance.
