HISTORY OF WELLNESS?
Wellness is a modern word with ancient roots. The key beliefs of wellness include both holistic and preventative concepts, which can be traced back to ancient civilisations from countries such as India, China, Greece and Rome. During the 19th century in Europe and the United States, a variety of
intellectual, religious and medical movements developed in parallel with conventional medicine. With their focus on holistic and natural approaches, self – healing and preventative treatments, these movements attracted many followers and have provided a firm foundation for wellness today.
THE DEFINITION OF WELLNESS
Wellness centres around the pursuit of activities, choices and lifestyles that lead to a state of holistic health. There are two important aspects to this definition. Firstly, wellness is not a passive or static state but rather an ‘active pursuit’ that is associated with intentions, choices and actions as we work toward an optimal state of health and wellbeing. Secondly, wellness is linked to holistic health, that is, it extends beyond physical health and incorporates many different dimensions that should work in harmony.
The individual aspects of holistic health all aim to address a specific area of our lives. It goes beyond looking at only our physical health and takes an approach to our lives that ensures an overall sense of wellness. Wellness is more than an absence of sickness, it’s the pursuit of a sense of contentment, accomplishment, and peace in our lives that stems from having everything in balance. While this isn’t possible all the time, the aim is to be treating each of the eight pillars of holistic health with equal importance so that we can live a fully rounded life.
THE EIGHT PILLARS OF HOLISTIC HEALTH
PHYSICAL HEALTH – If the first thing your mind jumped to was ‘exercise’ you’re not alone. However, our physical health goes beyond activity and includes diet, sleep habits and even hygiene.
NUTRITION – This is an important pillar. Nutrition isn’t as simple as getting the right amount of calories a day and the correct nutrients and minerals, it requires an understanding of your age, gender, level of activity and personal body chemistry to determine what’s best for you.
EMOTIONAL – Anyone who has lived in times of stress can understand the effect it takes on your body. Emotional health requires taking care of yourself, having a support system and a healthy relationship with your emotions.
SOCIAL – Humans are social animals and social interaction is so important to caring for our overall health. Those with social networks are healthier and experience a greater level of overall happiness.
SPIRITUAL – A common mistake is assuming that spirituality is about religion, but that’s just one way some people meet this need. A sense of direction, purpose in life, or meaning that helps define a path forward and a feeling of place.
INTELLECTUAL – Growth and mental stimulation are essential to keep us engaged and growing. It also contributes significantly to the health of the mind, including memory cognition and general aptitude.
FINANCIAL – Stress surrounding our monetary situation, is one of the biggest contributors to a sense of ill-ease. While it can be hard to get into a stable position financially, achieving this can provide a significant amount of contentment and comfort.
ENVIRONMENTAL – Our home, work and larger community all have an impact on our feeling of contentment, and as a result our overall wellness. Becoming connected in your personal and workspace can only be beneficial.
