What is Wellness?
Wellness is the recognition of our true potential to live a happier, successful, balanced and healthier life. Wellness, in other terms, is an active life process utilizing awareness and decisions toward a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Wellness is now a status symbol among many people, who prioritize maintaining a well-balanced physical and mental health. Therefore, it’s no surprise that wellness is creeping into all aspects of people’s lifestyle.
Here are 4 Areas of Wellness to Truly Understand Why This Trend Continues To Boom
1. Physical Wellness
Physical wellness involves aspects of your life that are necessary to keep yourself in good condition. Optimal physical wellness is developed through the combination of healthy eating habits and physical exercise. Elemental components of physical wellness include building muscular strength, endurance, and flexibility.
The wellness approach would be to take preventative measures to enhance the performance of our immune systems, identify allergies, minimize exposure to toxins, drink plenty of clean water, eat organic foods and maintain a healthy percentage of body fat and lean muscle mass – all while developing and maintaining strength and flexibility. While you may think you’re healthy, it’s possible to get so used to the way you’re feeling, that you won’t even realize how much better you could feel, if the right steps were taken.
2. Emotional Wellness
Emotional wellness is related to knowing how you feel and coping with stress. It’s critically important to pay attention to relaxation, self-care, stress reduction and the development of inner resources so you can learn and grow from life experiences. Being emotionally well is more than just handling stress. It involves being attentive to your feelings, behaviors, and thoughts, regardless if they’re positive or negative. Emotional wellness means having the ability to be aware of and accept our feelings, rather than deny them, have a positive approach to life, and enjoy life despite its occasional frustrations and disappointments.
3. Social Wellness
The social dimension of wellness includes the careful creation and maintenance of healthy and active relationships, our impact on our surroundings or the environment, our contribution and involvement in the community. Social wellness helps you perform social roles comfortably and effectively, and creates a support network. This dimension of wellness allows you to not only develop positive relationships with peers but to also maintain close relationships with romantic partners. Since we cannot control others, we can only make investments in the best relationships and consciously be strong to avoid the needy, destructive ones that weaken our wellness.
4. Environmental Wellness
Environmental wellness encourages you to respect the delicate balance between yourself and the environment. Respect for other living things in our environment is just as necessary as respect for the physical environment itself. Environmental well-being includes trying to live in harmony with the earth by understanding the impact of your interaction with nature and your environment and taking action to protect the world around you. Protecting yourself from environmental hazards and reducing the negative impact of your behavior on the environment are also essential elements in wellness.
