I recently came across a daily wellness checklist on one of my friend’s blogs, and decided to create my own. Keeping yourself in check when it comes to your health and wellness goals is important, but often forgotten. Having a checklist allows you to make sure that you are on target with your goals, and shows you where you are falling short.
Depending on your personal health and wellness goals, you may want to tweak the checklist. While using the checklist every day would be ideal, I suggest using it for at least one week every season. Our day-to-day activities, eating habits, and workouts tend to fluctuate with each passing season. I bet you’ll be surprised to see how well you are doing in some aspects during the season and how poorly you are doing in others! This is a great way to evaluate where you are at, and focus on the areas in your life you are struggling with.
