Outside nutrition, exercise and rest, what you choose to do and where and how you choose to live and work on a day-to-day basis has a significant effect on your health and wellness. It's important you constantly assess your own personal environment and lifestyle to ensure that it is supporting your health and the health of your family and friends.
Assess key areas of your lifestyle that you can change and write an action plan to improve these areas over time, think about;
- Employment and income - Your social network and cultural activities - Your physical and home environment - Your own personal and professional education and development - Your mental health, resilience strategies and wider self-awareness - Your accessible health services locally
Think holistically about your home, work and lifestyle - ask yourself whether there are things you can modify to improve your health and the health of others around you. Are you developing personally and professionally? Do you enjoy work and are you having the impact you want to have? Are you spending enough time enjoying activities you like with others? Are you spending enough time outdoors and in nature - could you modify you daily commute to improve this?
