Today I am using my blog writing time to put together a wellness action plan for the next few months of The Pollyanna Plan.
It struck me this morning, how in the weeks leading up to this recent health glitch I had been neglecting some of the fundamentals of keeping myself healthy and happy. I’d allowed them to slide down my list of priorities, letting things I thought at the time to be more important to take their place.
As I have to manage my energy very carefully, there are only so many things I’m able to do in a day – realistically I can do a couple of hours in the morning and, on a good day, a couple more hours in the afternoon, with a rest in between.
Due to this, as soon as I have anything to “do”, say a commission to make, or a little trip out of the house, I have to shelf other activities. However, I have now learnt that shelving those things that help my health and general wellbeing is not a wise idea.
So, today starts the gradual re-introduction of these activities to form My Wellness Action Plan:
- 15 Minutes of positive, happy, grateful thoughts.
- EFT (tapping.)
- Meditation – 5 mins to start with.
- Walking (I’ll start this as soon as I’m strong enough.)
- 15-20 minutes of sunlight directly onto my skin (no sun tan cream) to boost my Vitamin D levels.
- Blogging my daily reason to feel glad/happy/joyful, which I’m pleased to say I have always done, no matter what.
- Beginners yoga online video – 3-4 times a week if possible.
- Getting out of the house – a broad category, but it’s ages since I’ve been out or seen anyone and I’d like to work up to doing this as much as I can.
- Reiki self treatment – 3 times a week
Day 235, Reason 235: Today I am super happy and excited to begin my Wellness Action Plan. In fact, I’m going to print my list off now. 🙂
September Juicing Challenge – Day 16, Juice 16: Carrot and apple juice for me today. Woohoo!

I was contacted today by Heather, a truly inspiring wife and mother. When her daughter was 3 ½ months old, she was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare and deadly cancer, and given 15 months to live. Despite these odds, she survived and is using her inspirational story to help raise awareness of this little known cancer and to give hope to others facing life’s difficult challenges.
In honour of upcoming Mesothelioma Awareness Day (September 26), Heather’s goal is to get 7,200 social media shares on her campaign page, Dying to be Heard – Be a Voice for the Victims. Please share! 🙂
