Wellness is the sum of many parts. It starts with physical activity and nutrition that is right for you. Your mental, emotional and physical state make a difference. It depends a lot on the environment you are in and how closely you are connected to that environment. Genetics does play a role (but not all of it). Your outlook on life is a huge piece of the puzzle. The same goes for friendships, and the quality and quantity of your sleep is important.
In short, it's about the whole picture. The acorn aims to simplify the sound and give you an insight into what is really working. Years of turning rocks and digging up data has led to a surprising conclusion. As it turns out, the truth about wellness is a lot less complicated than we previously thought.
Wellness is about food: real, homemade food. It's about who you eat the food with. It's about having an active lifestyle and doing things that you enjoy. It's about spending time with loved ones. About to get outside. About hobbies, silent contemplation, community, dancing and joy. Sleep well and pay attention to the bigger picture.
In one word: it's about BALANCE.
Balance to control fears (exams, dentist, to fly, changes in life)
A support system in life crises (to help with worries, accidents, grief, illness)
Letting go of negative beliefs and behaviour
A reduction of stress in relationships (private, work, school)
New perspectives, and reorientation
Coaching and using your own potential
Experience the new life energy
