Open Sky Fitness Podcast

Rob & Devon Dionne have been in the health and fitness world for over a decade. Devon is a Holistic Nutrition Counselor and GYROTONIC® Instructor. Rob is a certified personal trainer with NASM, holding advanced certification, CES, PES, MMA, and Weight Loss Specialist. He's also a level 1 Crossfit Instructor. This husband and wife team redefine what it means to be healthy in this fast paced, hectic world we live in. The Open Sky Fitness Podcast is perfect for men and women who are trying to get back in shape after neglecting their health after years of focusing on their jobs or building a family. Remember what it was like when you were 20 years old? Diet and exercise wasn't a thing. If you worked out for a few days or stopped eating cheese burgers for a week, you'd drop ten pounds. Too bad we can't live in that reality forever. Welcome to life after 30. Rob & Devon would like to help you find the right path for this moment in your life. We don't believe in going on a diet. We don't believe there's only one way to achieving the body you want. We do believe in creating a lifestyle that allows you to have the best of both worlds...eating delicious food and being healthy at the same time. It is possible. Just listen to our show and you'll see! If you have questions you'd like us to answer on our show or via email, feel free to contact Rob. If you'd just like to write us a letter and give us your feedback, we'd love that too. Send everything to Rob@OpenSkyFitness.com Thanks for listening! Enjoy the show.

The Twelve Categories of Wellness

 

"Health is not only about fitness and nutrition, it's also about balancing all of the other aspects of your life." - Devon Dionne

 

On this week's episode, Devon and I are sharing one of the best tools to help you take the first step to owning your wellness: The Wheel of Wellness. Health and wellness is more than just eating healthy every day and hitting the gym a couple of times a week. It can be about mindfulness, relationships, self-purpose and more.

To help you get a better understanding of your health wellness, we've broken it down into 12 different categories.

The 12 Sections for the Wheel of Wellness:

  1. Nutrition
  2. Physical Fitness and Activity
  3. Health
  4. Relationships
  5. Career
  6. Finances
  7. Spirituality
  8. Creativity, Fun, and Recreation
  9. Self-Love
  10. Personal Growth and Education
  11. Environment and Nature
  12. Self-Purpose and Service to the Community

 

To get started, first you'll have to grab a piece of paper and something to write with. Draw a circle on the piece of paper and divide it into the 12 different sections of wellness.

Rate each category from 0-5 as far as satisfaction and how you feel about them. Are you happy with your personal growth or could you be doing more?

Draw 5 line markers, label them 1-5 and color in each section. Here is an awesome example of a Wheel of Wellness by Jessica Burgueñ0 with which she uses a 1-10 rating scale.

Wheel of Wellness

 

Reviewing Your Wellness Wheel

 

"Is your wheel jagged and crooked or is it a perfectly balanced wheel? Even if it is balanced, how did you rate each category? Is everything at a 4 or 5 or are they at 1 or 2 and you just feel flat?" - Rob and Devon Dionne

 

Take some time to see where you're at with your wellness wheel. Is everything balanced or are there a couple of areas that you could focus on?

Now, make a list of what you are able to do to make those positive changes happen. For example, if you want to improve your nutrition, try to do a meal prep day once a week or pack healthy snacks. If you need to improve your relationship with someone, schedule in some uninterrupted time to just be with them.

You don't have to try to improve everything at once. Simply pick 1-3 sections from your wheel that really motivate you to start making some positive changes. 

 

Evaluating Your Wellness Wheel

 

"Every time you set out to try something and you do not succeed at it, it's not a failure, but a learning experience. When you reflect on your progress, it just means you're looking at information. You're not judging yourself." - Rob and Devon Dionne

 

Take some time once a week to look at your accomplishments. Grab your wellness wheel and see if you've made any progress. Don't judge yourself, just reflect on what you've done so far with your goals. There's no failing here; only learning.

If you're not making the progress you want to make or you're not motivated to keep trying, go back and reflect once again on your Wheel of Wellness. Choose different sections to focus on or make new goals for yourself.

Evaluate and create a new Wheel of Wellness for yourself every 3 months. Surprising enough, sometimes all it takes is 3 months to see some change!
