P31 Wellness

Wow, it's been along time.  Isn't it crazy how sometimes life can just get ahead of you?  My last post was back in May of 2013.  That seems like such a long time ago, but also seems like just yesterday.  A lot has changed... including this blog.  I am hoping to re-jump this blog, but with a little different focus.  Well maybe not different, just broader.  In the weeks to come I will maybe explain that a little more, but for now let me answer the 7 Key Questions about what P31 Wellness will hopefully become.

Who: Most of the posts will be written by me, though I would love to feature some guest posters every once in awhile (if your interested, send me an email!).  Who am I?  My name is Kristina.  I am 32.  My husband and I have been married for a little over 5 years.  We have no children yet, but we do have 4 cats who are as spoiled as children can be.  My husband is an Orthopedic Surgery R.N. and he is amazing at his job.  He really does have a servants heart.  Sometimes I envy how much he truly cares for people and I feel blessed that he chose to spend his life with me.  I am currently a Management Trainee at a company that hires medical professionals to work at military facilities.  What is a Management Trainee?  Basically, I do whatever they ask me to.  I love it.  I get to work with and experience every aspect of the company.  I have only been in this position for a month, but I have learned so much.  Educational wise- I have a B.A in Psychology, a B.A. in Sociology, and a Masters of Education.  I had planned to be a teacher, but it just wasn't the right fit for me.  Strangely, the corporate world seems to be.  Let's see.  I love cats (four is just not enough!), love to read, love learning and experiencing new stuff.  I am working on my health, nutrition, as well as deepening my faith.  My husband and I are currently house hunting and are looking forward to owning our own home.  That seems to be the main parts of my life.

What: What will you find here at P31 Wellness.  Honestly, a little bit of everything.  To me, wellness is just not about one thing, it is about everything.  To really live a life of wellness, you need to find the balance in all areas of your life.  Health, Finances, Relationships, Faith, Career. Etc.  So that is exactly the kind of posts you will find here.  I will post about everything from health and nutrition to organizational to managing your finances to broadening your horizons.  I hope you will find something that appeals to you.  What do you want to learn more about?  Let me know in the comments.

Why: Why am I creating a blog?  Because I need to hear it.  Almost everything I write about, will be something I have or am struggling with.  They are topics I want to learn more about or need to work on.  And generally, I tend to do better when there is accountability out there.

When: When will I post?  That varies.  I currently have a pretty busy life, and for me to continue with the blog for more than a few weeks, it needs to fit my lifestyle.  My goal is to post at least once during the beginning of the week and once toward the end.  We will see how that goes.

Where: Where do I get my information from?  Everywhere.  I will try to include links to where I located the information for, or provide additional resources if you seek to explore a topic further.

How: How will I write my posts?  Typically they will be written during my lunch breaks at work.  I hope to be a few posts ahead, so that I can stick to the posting schedule.

How Much: My goal right now is at least two posts a week.  But again, I am writing them during my lunch breaks, so it will depend on what else I have going on.  Also, I want the posts to be well thought out and not just a jumble of information.  With that in mind, it might take me more time on certain topics than others.

One last question.... do you like giveaways?  If so...then I hope you participate in my first every giveaway.  I am a big proponent about setting goals and creating to-do lists.  I think they help keep us on track and help push you to accomplish more.  This year I have chosen the Spark Planner.  You can find out more about the SparkPlanner here.  I love that it has space for yearly goals, as well as monthly and weekly goals.  Plus plenty of space for your to do lists and any other information you need to keep track of.  I will do a more in depth post about the SparkPlanner sometime soon.  For now, to be entered in the drawing for your own 2016 Spark Planner, please complete the following two items:
1) Like P31 on facebook.
2) Comment below with one topic you are struggling with, or would like to see a post about.

I will randomly draw a name from all the people who enter.  The winner will be announced next week, when I blog about my SparkPlanner and how I use it.

I am really glad you are here.

I see that your blog is kind of about wellness and kind of about just your day to day life... Have you ever considered what essential oils can do for your mind/body? Would it be ok if I shared some information with you that I have about Young Living Essential Oils? If you do want to know more, contact me at <--- that is my personal email, so you can use it to find me on Facebook or Google+ if you'd like. I also have an old blog I haven't messed with in a while also.

I'm not a bot or anything, just interested in spreading the word about wellness :)
