The meaning of wellness?  An 'active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life'.  You'll have no doubt heard it mentioned at some point over recent months, or years - though perhaps not in so many words.  Self-care falls under the umbrella of wellness, as does health and even fitness.  I feel as though the past few years have seen a huge shift towards encouraging people to look after themselves; it started with the concept of Hygge, moved to include Lagom and now has us all discussing self-care in every shape and form.  No complaints here.  We're a generation made up of those creating, working, analysing and pushing forwards - but with that comes a certain responsibility to truly take care of ourselves.  The question is, how does keeping active slot into this movement of wellness?

Considering the role good health plays in the concept of wellness, keeping active is particularly important.  Although, it's all about moderation. Put it this way, last summer I pushed myself way too hard at the gym and ended up knackering my body in the process.  Lesson learnt!  The trick is to listen to your body and keep your health in mind.  By all means push yourself, but know your limits.  Having fallen down the rabbit hole of all things wellness-related, I can see now how exercise isn't about punishing yourself to see how much you can take.  Instead, it's a form of improving and almost treating your body, getting fitter, sweating out the toxins, getting stronger with every day.

Needless to say, there are a ton of different forms of wellness.  Though right now my mind is entirely fixed on the form that speaks to our bodies.  With this in mind, Cocobay's New In activewear is ticking all of the right boxes.  Like I said, keeping active is a treat for our bodies - but nobody said it couldn't also be a treat for the eyes!  I'm a true Seafolly legging convert (especially since 5 Ways To Look Stylish While Working Out and Reset Your Fitness Goals), and so the addition of these Seafolly Colour Block Leggings to my gym wardrobe has helped kickstart this new year's fitness endeavours in the best possible way - in style!  Also, can we take a minute to appreciate a decent hooded top?  I swear you can never have too many in an activewear wardrobe.  This isn't my first Body Glove hooded top and... yeah, I still understand the hype.
