Let's break down some simple starting points to get started on your wellness journey.

Take some time to recognize what makes you feel motivated to take back your health. Do you just want to feel better? Write it down and place it somewhere visible as a reminder.
2. Pinpoint The Problems(s)
Do some self-assessment to figure out what is causing your health concerns. Are you are consuming a lot of processed sugars, sodas, or fast foods? Maybe you're not getting enough sleep or even too much sleep. Has your lifestyle become less active? Or maybe there is even a deeper issue which you will need to figure out with the help of your doctor.
3. Do some research
There is a lot of information out there. It can really overwhelming. The fact is, there is no one right way for certain health issues - like weight loss, for example. Some of your process is bound to be trial and error, but with a little patience and information from reputable sources, you can find a maintainable solution that works for you.

With the problems you just identified in mind, you can come up with solutions that will work for you. Many people have many different methods. It may take some trial and error, but it doesn't have to be stressful. People tend to get caught up counting every single calorie they consume. This surely has it's benefits, but is it sustainable? For most people, it's not. Your best best will be to come up with a plan that that makes sense with your lifestyle - one that will be maintainable for the rest of your life.
