People often think about wellness in terms of physical health but it is so much more. Wellness is a holistic integration of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. We need to fuel the body, engage the mind, and nurture the spirit. It’s about maintaining good health and living life fully.
Wellness encompasses 8 mutually interdependent dimensions: physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, vocational, financial, and environmental.
The current global health crisis has shown how inter-connected these dimensions are. People’s lifestyles have been impacted by safety restrictions, a pervading sense of fear, social disconnection, business closures and job losses. For each of us, this has meant re-evaluating the importance of previous habitual activities and stepping out of routine. It also offers us the opportunity to be more mindful of how we self-steward our own wellness and support those we care about.
Each one of us is so unique that it’s impossible to assert any particular balance between the 8 dimensions of wellness. It is important to note though that neglecting any over time will adversely affect the others, and ultimately one’s health and quality of life. When determining how to balance, we can strive for a ‘personal harmony’ that feels nurturing and authentic to us.
