This is such a great article! It appeared in Cosmopolitan Magazine (not the SA version) recently and show-cased some amazing woman in wellness.
The truth is wellness is not a number on a scale or your blood test results. Its not dependant on what diseases you have or whether you have full use of all your limbs. Its not about how flexible, or strong or lean you are. We all come with our own struggles and limitations, and health is about being the best version of yourself that you can be. Wellness is about attitude, resilience and self-care. It's about rising to the occasion every day and taking care of and accepting the body you are in. It's about shifting the focus off what your body looks and onto what your body and do and how it can feel.
