Wellness Consciousness

Wellness consciousness is a holistic integration of physical, mental and spiritual well-being. It involves fueling the body, engaging the mind and nurturing the spirit.

This study reveals that health life goal mediates the relationship between wellness consciousness and home-based exercise. Perceived behavioral control also plays a mediator role in this relation.

Increased Productivity

People who are health-conscious are able to prioritize their well-being, which helps them eliminate unhealthy habits that can cause harm to the body. Some examples of unhealthy habits include smoking, drinking too much alcohol, eating junk food, and spending too many hours in front of a screen (such as surfing social media).

Productivity draws on mental and physical energy, which can only be sustained for long periods if you’re healthy. Simple strategies such as nourishing diets, consistent exercise and regular sleep can help you maintain your wellness so that you’re able to perform at your best in work and in life.

This study mainly focuses on the influencing mechanism of health consciousness on home-based exercise during the COVID-19 pandemic. The results show that health consciousness can directly influence home-based exercise. Additionally, it can indirectly influence home-based exercise through the mediating role of health life goal and perceived behavioral control. The findings suggest that promoting the transformation of health consciousness into health behaviors is conducive to improving home-based exercise.

Better Relationships

People with a higher wellness consciousness are more likely to engage in healthy behaviors that promote social connection. They are also more aware of their emotional triggers and tend to communicate better with others. This can lead to more productive and satisfying relationships at home, work and in their social circles.

Achieving a high level of wellness consciousness can help you achieve your personal goals and improve your overall life experience. It will teach you self-discipline and help you to become more motivated and organized. It will also give you the ability to think clearly, solve problems and be more resilient under stress.

Besides the mediating effect of health life goal, this study found that health consciousness had a direct influence on home-based exercise. This is because it enhances perceived behavioral control, which in turn has a positive effect on home-based exercise. This finding is consistent with the previous studies.

Improved Mood

A healthy lifestyle can improve your mood by reducing the effects of stress. This may be because the act of prioritizing wellness can help you feel more in control of your life. This feeling of empowerment can reduce depression and boost happiness, especially when combined with regular exercise.

People who are health conscious tend to eliminate bad habits that can negatively affect their lives, such as smoking, eating excessive junk food, sitting for long periods of time, and surfing social media. This can significantly reduce the risk of having various diseases and illnesses.

A study that used Structural Equation Modeling revealed an internal mediation between health consciousness and home-based exercise through health life goal and perceived behavioral control. Hence, the result confirms that health consciousness has an important effect on home-based exercise.

Increased Empathy

Empathy allows you to connect with others in a way that deepens your relationship and makes them feel heard. It can also help you be a more effective leader, and improve the quality of your life overall.

When we’re empathetic, our brain’s emotional center and cognitive centers collaborate to make sense of situations. The more we empathize, the more likely we are to have positive thoughts about other people and their well-being.

Taking the time to understand your own feelings can also increase your empathy, as can learning how to calm your emotions. This allows you to be less reactive when things in your life don’t go according to plan, making it easier to maintain a positive attitude.

Meditation based on mindful awareness has been shown to increase both the affective and cognitive components of empathy. Perula-de Torres et al (2021) found that a 3-month mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) program led to higher empathy in healthy adults. However, subgroup analyses suggest that intervention dose and format influences the effectiveness of MBIs on empathy.
