I am always struggling with the motivation to get myself healthier - mentally and physically. Juggling work, marriage, a preschooler, an elementary student, pets, property, finances, etc. it is so hard to find the motivation and willpower to take those positive steps to get out of that cycle of being overwhelmed and stressed and junk-eating. When I heard about My Well-Being, I was curious about whether this was just another calorie-tracker, guilt-inducing health site.
I was pleasantly surprised to find right off the bat that a lot of the articles right from the main health and wellness page are on positive inspiration and motivation - like the poll asking what most inspires me. The registration was fast and simple and led me right into a well-being assessment quiz. The quiz is thought provoking about your positive or negative feelings in several areas of your life. The bright, cheerful colors and photos on the site are very appealing. Your well-being is broken into a couple of main areas - health, finances and relationships and under each category you can find articles and tools to help you work toward improving that area of your life.
There is a large section of "How-To" videos to watch with tips on everything from "How to Get Better Gas Mileage" to "How to Properly Taste Wine". Just by signing up, My Well-Being will mail you a FREE Dummies book. I'm looking forward to reading my copy and seeing what I can pick up. Our walking challange at work has ended (we did win, by the way...) so I hope to be able to use My Well-Being to keep motivated to do a little something each day. I hope you'll take a little "me" time and check it out!
