Wellness Wheel Example 3: Marty
Marty's impressions: "It is shocking to see how unbalanced my Wellness Wheel is. Like I'm missing half of life. I am fifty years old and when I'm out running I zoom past guys who look ten years younger than me. I run at least six miles a day, take long-distance bicycle trips on the weekends, and am building strength and endurance. My work is so stressful that if I didn't do this much exercise I'd now be dead. I lost one job in the past year, and now have to work three times as hard, for less pay, to create a space for myself in this new company. I still make a good salary, but like everyone else, I always want more."
Marty's commitments: "My wife has been going for counseling for a year, and she wants me to join her. Our marriage is suffering. Actually, we are each suffering. I say I don't have time for counseling, but really I'm terrified. It will take a lot of energy to start to feel again. Without feeling and loving again, I'm in big trouble. I have to open my heart!"
