If you want to get fancy about it, this article seems loaded with ideas.  wellness plan

My Top-Of-Mind Wellness Plan :

These things I’m already doing pretty regularly :

  • Low stress (and good emotional control in stressful situations)
  • Appreciation of life
  • Pain free
  • Good skin
  • Eating calorie appropriate whole organic foods with great pleasure
  • Cooking
  • Shopping frequently for fresh foods from excellent sources
  • Love, and enjoy close relationships in my life

Some or Much room for improvement :

  • Get plenty of sleep (upcoming newborn baby notwithstanding)
  • Be a healthy size (not-top size in local Parisian shops)
  • Enjoyment of everything
  • Good nutrition (micro nutrients,  macros, vitamins, flavinoids, etc)
  • Cancer free
  • Strong body
  • Good flexibility
  • Great endurance and cardio response
  • Low inflammation markers

This week I’m actually weighing and measuring and writing things down.  I’m doing it to keep it real and keep a tight control (and because I really want to get 2 pounds off right now).

I’m also working on the “Get Plenty of Sleep” area for improvement.  And I’m skipping screen time at bedtime now too, after reading a few things that suggest it’s detrimental to winding down (I’ve found that to be true… Many a night playing around with the iPad for an hour or more after my DH is sleeping).  I’m going back to magazines and books for night-time wind-down reading for now.
