Abstract :

Way of life is central to human wellbeing, from what we eat, how much we move, what we think, what chemicals we are exposed to, how we deal with our emotions and the quality of sleep and the list goes on. Epigenetics (a change in our genetic activity without changing our genetic code) shows that genetics is only 30% of the health equation, with lifestyle choices being 70%. But do we realize it is the wrong lifestyle choices we make, that prepare our body for disease and lead to death. Self-analyzation, willingness to change, continuous wellness journey with trustworthy professional, self-efficacy evolution (people’s belief that they have the ability to perform particular behaviors) and perseverance can be the most obvious drivers of significant health evolution in your life. With practice, we can enhance our wellbeing and achieve a state of balance and contentment. Lifestyle choices that we make are the basis of our well-being and enhanced quality of life.
