Happy Valentimes!

30rock

No matter your feelings about Valentine’s Day, the current state of your romantic throes, or your particular plans for the lovely event, we can all agree on one prevailing prophecy: wellness is just as much a part of Valentine’s tradition as cupid, crass commercialization, and crippling emotional rejection.

Oh, so you’re of a different mind on the subject? Well… I see you’ve left me no choice. Valentine’s Day is about giving, caring, sharing, and wellness, and if I have to prove it to you, then I certainly will. No matter the Valentine’s fare—fancy meals, decadent chocolates, extravagant bouquets, annual disappointment—we can go about it healthily, happily, and smartly.

A Triumphant Return to Wellness

You may have noticed before us here at Wellness360, but it’s 2009! What are the odds? Time for a brand new you. Time to branch out, even be adventurous, spontaneous, rambunctious, gregarious. It’s time to change, grow, and become the you you’ve always wanted to be. Therefore, instead of cringing at this treacly attempt at galvanizing spiritual and physical harmony, you’ve already started your crusade, right?

NO!!!! I'm SICK!!! The FLUUUUUU!!! ACK!!!

Oh, my! What’s that? Cold and flu has attacked and set back your valiant attempts at slimming and improving yourself and your life? The mere threat has triggered you to spiral into a tailspin from which you may never recover? Well, frankly, I’m shocked. Friend, we must reverse these insidious tides. We must ensure 2009 is a year of success—not distress. We must defeat these bugs!

Let's do what Elmer Fudd could not.

Stymie Your Holiday Stress

Cousin Eddie: “You surprised [to see us], Clark?”
Clark W. Griswold:
“Surprised, Eddie? If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn’t be more surprised than I am right now.”

If you can empathize with Clark, it’s no surprise to you, then, that during the holidays, we can all get a little stressed. Sometimes, unfortunately, that stress can even contort itself into depression. But really, it’s not that surprising or even embarrassing; if anything, it’s ordinary. Juggling work, marriage, kids, and bills on TOP of shopping, planning, cooking, organizing, decorating, schmoozing, and traveling is daunting for any human. We’re mere mortals. When you prick us, do we not bleed? When you overload us with junk to buy and eat, do we not collapse? Something is rotten in Santa’s workshop. It is the winter of discontent, and we’re all under the weather. Lucky for us, Wellness360 has the antidote for these holiday afflictions.
