Six Ways to Wellness

Share This Post

According to the World Health Organisation: “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

That doesn’t come as any great surprise; what is surprising is that the statement was made over 70 years ago – only now are we beginning to understand its implications.

There are six dimensions to health and wellness:

  • Emotional health effectively means the ability to handle life’s stressors calmly.
  • Environmental health involves looking after your own space on the micro level and the planet on the macro level.
  • Social wellbeing revolves around healthy relationships.
  • Spiritual health means being comfortable with the values that guide your life.
  • Intellectual health involves looking after your brain by keeping the mind alert.
  • Physical health means looking after your body by staying active and eating sensibly.

Now take a look at these six drivers and tell me if you think that regular exercise plays a key role in creating and maintaining wellness.

You bet it does.
