Let’s define ‘wellness’?

Wellness has become a priority for many people. For some this means a return to natural ways and foods, for some, it means opening up worlds to spiritual enlightenment, and for others still, it means taking time off to do what they love. Whatever the case, it is clear that wellness incorporates different aspects of our life such as mental health and physical health. But what does ‘wellness’ actually mean?

Wellness is holistic

Wellness is the pursuit of activities that lead to holistic health-- that means there is no ‘one-size-fits-all approach, and there is no one way or simple measure to get there. What we can do is assess where we are, and keep moving to where we want to be, emotionally, spiritually, mentally, physically, occupationally and so on. You get the picture, right? Wellness is multi-dimensional.

Wellness is transformational

Think about the most centred person in your circles, your spiritual leaders, your mentors, your fitness icon. One major thing they all have is that they were willing to work towards the transformation. Once you start to work on your wellness and continue to stay committed the results will come in time.

Your wellness is what you make it

You can decide to focus on one aspect of wellness at a time. For instance, you can work on your physical health while you ease into your spiritual health, or you can do both while you work on being mindful and eating better. The entire approach is up to you. In the world we live in today, very simple things can aid your overall wellness. You can call a loved one for 10 minutes a day, take some time to read for 20 minutes a day, eat more veggies in your meals, sleep more or meditate. Whatever you decide, it’s about you.
