It's All About That Wellness Wheel
Have you ever found yourself feeling like the world is running at 100 miles a minute, and catching your breath for just one second seems like an eternity away? As a counselor myself, I have found myself guilty of feeling this way many times. Throughout the years, when feeling like everything around me is out of control, it is a pretty good sign for me to STOP and look at all these things that are demanding time and energy from me. Something from my wellness wheel is unbalanced, and shouting for some love and attention. A wellness wheel you might ask? Yes, a wellness wheel. There are fundamental areas in our lives that require attention and personal investment. Emotional, Social, Spiritual, Financial, Occupational, Environmental, & Physical are very important areas for us to check in with from time to time.
