Picture of How to Maintain Personal Wellness - Free from Gimmicks and Artifice
Every day we see a new commercial for the next greatest weight loss drug, or an advertisement for the new book on the secret of being healthy.  The truth is, there is no one secret to living in a manner that maintains one's health.  Since personal wellness is defined differently from person to person, it is impossible to formulate a set of rules that everybody can follow, but there are certain guidelines that can be modified for most people. 

I refer to the maintenance of an able body as personal wellness.  It is a individual understanding of ones capacity to live and act in a manner that promotes an active and healthy lifestyle.

The purpose of this Instructable is to outline some broad concepts of maintaining  wellness that I personally have been able to incorporate into my life, while hopefully giving you an idea about what you can do to adapt these concepts into your own healthy routine.

Additionally, this Instructable was inspired at least in part by my mother,  a board certified Pediatrician and trained nutritional consultant.  With her guidance, I have been able to maintain my personal wellness, and I hope you can learn from my experiences.

This Instructable was entered into the "Active" category of the Humana Health Challenge.

I love this instructable. It's well made and has very good information that I plan to follow myself, but one thing is bothering me: it's "regimen", not "regiment" (which is a millitary term for a ground force unit). Thanks for posting. : )

This young man has his act together. At 67, I wish that I had practiced what he preaches. Perhaps I would not be taking so many pills every day. Good work

I have slowly become one of those people who lives on coffee, sugar and work stress. This reminded me how much I loved being in sports teams at school, and I love the 90/10 rule!
Inspired to make some changes to my lifestyle, thanks!
