Achieve Total Wellness
Deciding to work with any of the Circle of Qi Tribe members listed in our directory is the first step to achieve total wellness. But you must work hard on your own to achieve it as well. Qi Tribe members are merely guides, practitioners in aiding your spiritual journey. Learn about the multidimensional system that interlinks to create a formation of total wellness in those who wish to live a life of fulfillment and inspiration for others around them.
To strive for wellness is to take a proactive approach by learning how to be well in each dimension and taking action to build wellness-affirming habits, routines, and coping strategies. Wellness necessitates good self-stewardship, for us and for those we care about and who care about us. For those in the helping professions, such as us in veterinary medicine, wellness is a professional as well as personal responsibility. To ensure high-quality patient and client services, we have an ethical obligation to attend to our own health and well-being.
Making the right choices for health and well-being can be challenging. Although we know what is good for us and how we can do — and be — better, we may not act on it, or if we do, we may, in due course, slide back to familiar ways. Human behavior — what we do, how we do it, and whether we will succeed — is influenced by many factors, 2 of which are of relevance when it comes to wellness: self-regulation and habits.
Achieving wellness is really achieving health, but I also maintain that achieving wellness is the steppingstone from which fitness evolves from a chore to a recognized part of life. From that point on, your body begins to become healthy, and you gain energy and perspective. You also reduce stress and anxiety and feel more confident and calmer. And now you begin to see the mind connection. Less stress and anxiety equal more happiness, so now you see the spirit connection. Think of it as an unbroken circle. When one part is not aligned the others fall out of whack.
