Tackling Four Areas of Wellness: Spiritual, Emotional, Mental and Physical
Reaching toward my 27th year, I’ve become more aware of the importance of maintaining good health and wellness for my overall well-being. To do so, it’s necessary to create a consistent wellness path to follow in the years to come, ultimately setting myself up for a healthy lifestyle as I get older.
Are you interested in creating your own wellness path as well?
First, let’s tackle this concept and why it’s important for our well-being. Maintaining health and wellness is critical to live a quality and fulfilling life, as it affects our everyday actions and emotions. When your wellness is at its peak, you understand your importance in society, you feel motivated to enhance personal relationships and important friendships, and so on. When your wellness is at its low, you increase the risk of stress, anxiety and illness. You may also feel too discouraged to exercise or keep up with your diet.
It’s often viewed that our soul, feelings, mind and body are separate entities, when in fact, they are all connected. You must feed each of those areas every day to stay on your wellness path, whether it’s reading before you fall asleep, writing in a journal to express your feelings, going for a walk, eliminating junk food or talking to a close friend.
This holistic approach will ultimately balance and improve the different aspects that make you a whole person. You’ll be able to understand yourself better, cope with different challenges, and much more. All you need is time, determination and perseverance to achieve four areas of wellness: spiritual, emotional, mental and physical.
Imagine yourself meditating in a peaceful open field. Now, take a deep breath. You, my friend, are on the path to experiencing spiritual wellness, a state of harmony with yourself and others. You can also travel, pray, practice yoga, or think positive thoughts in order to explore your spiritual core, achieve inner peace and ponder the meaning of life.
Do you want to give and receive forgiveness, build positive relationships, feel more love and compassion, and ultimately experience happiness? Improving your emotional wellness will help you do just that! Distract yourself from negative thoughts, write in a journal, manage stress, and accept your mistakes to have a more positive attitude, a strong sense of self, and most importantly, inner strength.
When you improve your mental wellness, you also improve your capacity to live a full and exhilarating life regardless of its inevitable changes. Pick a fulfilling hobby, read captivating stories, participate in memory and mind-stimulating tasks, and display acts of kindness. Just remember to smile through the pain, because, after all, laughter is said to be the best medicine.
It’s very important to keep yourself in top condition for optimal well-being. Achieving physical wellness means taking quality care of your body through proper nutrition, exercise and rest. Some ways you can do this are getting consistent sleep, listening to your body, adopting healthy eating habits, controlling meal portions, drinking alcohol in moderation, and avoiding sugary, salty and fatty foods.
