An Integrated look at Wellness
Managing our wellness is not a skill that comes naturally, we all need to learn and discover how to maintain a healthy and balanced wellbeing. Unfortunately, it takes a sudden life crisis, loss of a job or loss of a loved one to evaluate how our wellbeing may be dented in one or more key components.
Wellness is a balancing act across several dimensions such as Relationships, Health, Self, Intellectual/ Financial, Environment and Spirituality. These dimensions are integrated and interlinked to form who you are and how you interact with the world around you.
So, what do these components consist of and why do we need to pay attention to them?
What role does Relationships play in our wellbeing?
Why you should care for yourself?
Is physical health enough?
Why does Intellectual stimulation aid self-worth?
…(as with Financial security)
Why your environment is critical to your wellbeing?
Why a sense of spiritual balance helps your wellbeing?
Is there such a thing as a balanced Wellbeing?
Seeking balance is not easy, and arguably questionable that we can achieve total balance across all dimensions at the same time.
Each component is consistently moving and changing, and it is unlikely that we can achieve a perfectly balanced set of components. Instead, we may see the focus move from one area of our wellbeing to another. The best we can all do is to have a healthy relationship with ourselves and those around us, this will help stimulate and maintain a healthy yet fluid interaction with the dimensions of our wellbeing.
