Wellness is surviving doctors, hospitals, recuperation and rehabilitation. It is keeping up your spirits. Guidance for you and for your family and friends who want to help. No fad diets or marathon training plans. Just the essentials.
This site is all about feeling better. Being happy and feeling good (relatively of course) is too important to take for granted or to give up on.
I have accompanied my child, my husband and my parents on their journeys through health care, with varying results. It is hard to be a caregiver, and it can be even harder to stay positive.
Wellness is about more than body
If there is anything I’ve learned it’s that attitude is everything. No matter how bleak things seem, we all choose how we approach our lives and how we cope with difficulties.
I have run across some amazing people, who have overcome heartbreak and illness to live wonderful and meaningful lives. I have also seen people give up.
It is so important that you choose to keep fighting. I do, every day when necessary.
It is all about the long game. I am going to get as much out of my life as possible.
In this site you will be able to access what I have learned from my own experience and from others.
- What to expect at the hospital.
- How to make your recuperation easier.
- Helping a loved one navigate their recuperation.
- Visiting an ailing friend and choosing a get well gift.
- What health aids are helpful and which ones are a waste of money.
- How to stay inspired and maintain your optimism when it gets hard.
Wellness is also state of mind
I will share the stories of others who inspire me. I believe that in sharing our success we can inspire each other to continue and to make the most of what we have been given.
If you have a story of overcoming and surmounting your health obstacles, we would love to hear it as well.
