Solid Ground Wellness promotes the principle that in order to achieve optimal wellness the individual’s well-being on an integrated and holistic level should be considered. Our overall well-being is intricately connected to our daily thoughts, actions and emotions, all of which are connected both to present time life issues and historical life issues. We may be compromising our well-being by re-creating unhealthy choices and behaviours.
Achieving wellness is a dynamic process of waking up to ourselves, to creating awareness, resolve and positive change to the life issues that hold us back from achieving our potential. The process of creating wellness means bringing into our lives conscious choices and changes that increasingly shift us toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is a constant process of change and growth.
