Corporate Millennial today are very stressed out. An undisciplined lifestyle while coping with new realities every day causes a number of health problems. This coupled with lack of active physical activities lead to weight gain, hypertension and what not. At some point, this starts affecting the general well-being of the millennial.
My Wellness Solutions arise out of what I have gone through in my corporate life besides what I saw happening with my colleagues. Active sportsmen in their college -days walked around with pot-belly after a few years in corporate life. The pot-belly was an indicator that quite few things are not right with the person.
I have thereby got down to writing a few pointers, which if taken care of will lead to Lifestime Wellness for the Millennial.
A Life of Freedom
Who does not want a life free of shackles? Shackles of health and everyday worry. Although, we are human beings injected into this world of suffering. However suffering stems from our own mind and how we perceive these sufferings. That is where our Emotional Intelligence creeps in. Being emotionally weak is a low resistance against bearing sufferings. I will stop here before sounding like a Spiritual Guru.
My Wellness solutions includes as attempt to live a life of freedom. Freedom from worries of health, relationships and money. Though worries of relationships are personal and depends on the individuals. Hence, we will keep our discussions to free ourselves from worries of health and fitness primarily and few pointers on worries of money. The idea of wellness for the millennial is being Healthy, Wealthy and Wise.
Health is the greatest asset we have. Have you imagined what havoc it would cause to you if you have spend all your earnings on medical bills? Wouldn’t even like to think about it, right?
Broadly, health can be either physical health and mental health. Mental health leads the way in keeping up a healthy body. But also, a healthy mind resides in a healthy body. It is therefore important to focus on both the physical and mental fitness to be healthy.
First of all, one needs a strong resolve to keep fit. As you would know, it is the lack of resolve in general population which makes fancy gyms to offer huge discounts on annual membership fees. They know quite well that the number of drop-out will be huge. I have spent a lot on annual membership fees myself without availing even half the benefits!
But once you have resolved to keep fit, many things related to wellness will flow in. For example, if you achieve a healthy sleep pattern, you will automatically see a discipline in food intake and having a good night’s sleep. One needs to take the initial few steps and then you will be up on the path of being healthy.
My Wellness solutions includes being wealthy. Wealthy in terms having no worries regarding money. This is already a niche topic which is discussed almost everywhere on the net. We will therefore discuss in brief about this step as this is an important aspect in the overall wellness solution.
Most people are constrained in their current jobs and not satisfied with the salary they earn. This will specially be true for millennial who are only a few years into the corporate job. Here, it is important to note that this is temporary and you start getting comfortable with your salary in later years of life. It is therefore important to keep your patience and focus on building your career rather than simply earning a salary. What it means is that you need to pick up on your skills and hone it to become an expert over the years. I have always believed in investing quality time in learning things. I have invested time(and money) in developing my writing skills for example. I urge you to pick up something of your interest, work on it and make it an asset for life.
Besides your main income – be it a job or business, try developing avenues to generate passive income. There is lot of information available on what is passive income and various ways to generate it. However, choose something that is of interest to you else you will end up wasting money only. Internet has opened up lot of opportunity for generating passive income online. Do some research and see if there is something which works out for you. Also, the age-old passive income generators and either land or things lying beneath it. Think about it and work for acquiring assets early on in life which will give you recurring passive income in the future.
A key wellness solution is to become wise. By this I mean to invest time in gaining knowledge. Gaining knowledge of your surrounding is fascinating. Just try to understand the geography of the place. Once start looking around you will see a number of nature’s gifts. This infuses happiness in you. Try speaking time under a banyan tree. Feel the cool it provides and you will be mesmerized.
Expand your horizon by learning various things about your world. Read at least one book every month. Start playing music. It is not so hard. Playing musical instrument might require skill and patience but singing along does not but still fills you with joy. You can still learn about music if not play it.
The necessity of being Wise to attain wellness is that you start appreciating various aspects of life. This fills you with joy as you are able to make achievements however small. Pay attention to these aspects and you will be on the path to wellness.
I have tried to simplify my wellness solutions by appealing you to be Healthy, Wealthy and Wise. I encourage you to begin practising some things highlighted in my solutions above.
Would love to hear back from you and Wish You All The Best for achieving a life full of Wellness!
