Fusion Wellness

Fusion—you read it right—not confusion, although there’s a lot of that where wellness is concerned. You’ve probably (maybe) heard of fusion cooking. Fusion cooking is about mixing and matching and substituting non-traditional methods and ingredients and creating something different. It’s about starting with old familiar recipes and changing the spices, even some of the main ingredients and cooking methods to come up with a similar but new and different taste. Fusion of ideas and pre-conceived opinions.

Here’s some food for thought—what if we take the same concept and come up with, let’s call it, “Fusion Wellness.” We take the basics that work, we mix and match, we make positive substitutions, we create a new “recipe,” and we find a way to make wellness “tasty” for each of us. We find ways to fuse our lives with positive and realistic wellness patterns. It’s kind of catchy (and it’s catching, sort of like our concept of viral wellness).

We all know that healthy living doesn't happen at the doctor's office. The road to better health is paved with the small decisions we make every day. It's about the choices we make when we buy groceries, walk the dog or play with the kids, instead of watching TV. It’s about how all of these things fuse together to create our lives.

How about if we really make it a main ingredient and blend wellness into the mix?
