The BWell Top 10 List

June 6, 2016|By Dr. Mary Anderson|Behavioral Medicine

Note: Dr. Mary Anderson created the BWell blog for Commonwealth Psychology Associates over a year ago so we thought it was a good time to reflect on and review some of the most important messages she's shared. Here are Dr. Anderson's Top 10 BWell Takeaways from the past year.

BWell Top Ten Takeaways

  1. Daily habits have an enormous power to either enhance or decrease our overall health and well-being. Make daily choices mindfully, as patterns and habits often develop quicker than we realize. What you do today matters.
  2. Gratitude & generous action are key to happiness in life.
  3. Develop a healthy sleep routine—it’s essential for good health and well-being.
  4. Setting small, doable goals will help you keep moving forward.
  5. Find a way to relax every day (even if it’s only for a few minutes or breaths.)
  6. Find a way to move your body every day (any type of physical activity counts.)
  7. Always have something pleasant or meaningful coming up to look forward to.
  8. Practice being mindful in your daily activities—walk outside and notice the sights and sounds of nature, don’t text while driving or walking, savor the taste of your food while eating.
  9. Find ways to spend time with people who are supportive, kind, make you laugh, are committed to being healthy, or inspire you to be your best self.
  10. Make time for self-care (i.e. sleep, exercise, good nutrition and hydration)—it will help you enjoy a happier and healthier life.
