Hi Everyone my name is Rahim. I’m an enthusiast on wellness, health, and well-being. I love the feeling of feeling good. I love the feeling I get when I work out, eat the right things and I see and feel a direct result of my actions. To be honest I wasn’t always this way.
Even though I was a vegetarian at a fairly young age, I went through a phase in my teens and early twenties when I wasn’t concerned at all with an overall wellness lifestyle. I wasn’t active, and I didn’t have the nutritious diet you would think a vegetarian is supposed to have. I didn’t have it and I didn’t know how to go about achieving it. In my mind, I felt like because I didn’t eat meat, I was impervious to anything that would be of danger to my immune system. The funny thing about it was that, I was getting sick all of the time and I didn’t know why. I started taking vitamins, minerals, herbs and occasionally eating the way I was supposed to, but I was missing the one thing that is the key to any successful regimen: CONSISTENCY.
Once I got into my early 20’s I started to hear this re-occuring word on television and in casual conversation. The word was Wellness or Wellness Lifestyle. When I first heard it, I just passed it off as some kind of new age concept about eating bad tasting food that was good for you and keeping my head in the “cosmos” all day long. I later found out that Wellness or a Wellness Lifestyle is not any one particular thing. It involves a series of different activities. Jogging, running, walking, eating right, meditation, martial arts, nutrition, financial awareness and countless other methods of wellbeing are ALL a part of living a wellness lifestyle. You don’t have to be involved in every single physical, mental or spiritual activity to achieve wellness. You just have to try different things and find out what works for you.
Once I came to the realization of what wellness was, I began to do just that. I tried different things to see what worked for me. I mentioned a very key word before. The key word is CONSISTENCY. Nothing works without it. Consistency with my workout regimen, consistency with my diet and consistency with my financial awareness is the reason why I’m A LOT better off than I was before. More importantly, my consistency in continuous learning is what’s going to keep me on an upward track of always finding new and interesting ways of maintaining my wellness.
