Are you healthy? Your personal health and wellness is a multi-faceted thing. In fact, physical, occupational, social, mental/emotional, and spiritual are the most important domains of health. If you’re concerned with your own well-being, you need to take a proactive approach in each domain.
1. Physical Health: Do I have to go to the gym?
Does anyone actually like going to the gym? If you do, that’s great – keep it up. If you don’t, you need to realize that there are a ton of other things you can do to stay active – you don’t need to waste your time running to nowhere on a treadmill. In the twenty first century, we’ve lost touch with what it means to be active. You don’t need to buy fancy equipment or a hefty gym membership. What you do need to do is try to find activities that you enjoy and incorporate them into your lifestyle. Try joining an adult soccer league or going to a yoga class once a week. If you’re busy, you can try making healthy habits part of your routine. For example, biking to work a few days a week, or always taking the stairs, or going swimming over your lunch hour. It doesn’t take much to stay healthy and fit, without having to put in time at the gym.
2. Occupational Health: Who wants to work?
Work is always a drag, right? Wrong. If you don’t like what you’re doing, why waste your time? Life is short, and we can guarantee you that staying in a job that is unchallenging or unfulfilling is a choice that you will regret in the long-term. Don’t you want to spend what little time you have here doing something that makes you jump up and down with excitement? You spend a huge chunk of your time at work, therefore if you don’t like what you’re doing, your health will be more likely to suffer.
3. Social Health: Love, actually?
The relationships that you have are extremely important. The interactions you have with others will ultimately bring enrichment and fulfillment to your life, but only if you are willing to put into your relationships what you want to get out of them. Every relationship you have, including romantic relationships, familial relationships, and friendships, is a two-way street. You have to be willing to give and share yourself in order to get the same in return. The types of relationships you have throughout your life can either help or hurt your overall health, so it’s important to make sure the people you spend your time with nurture you with positivity.
4. Mental & Emotional Health: Singing the blues?
Just as your body needs fuel to stay healthy, your mind needs nourishment to provide you with an output of positive thoughts and emotions. If you are prone to neglecting your emotions or thinking pessimistically, you are actually at an increased risk of developing mood disorders such as depression and anxiety, and physical health problems such as decreased longevity. Maintaining a positive frame of mind can also help you to cope with the stressors you will experience throughout your life and keep your emotions in check.
5. Spiritual Health: Are you there, God?
Your spirituality is an integral part of your personal health and wellness, and sooner or later you will have to address it. We all neglect our spirituality from time to time, but when we are forced to experience suffering, that’s when we seek assistance from a divine presence. With faith, you can endure all things, but sometimes it takes some active effort on your part to find those beliefs within yourself. Stillness can help you to acknowledge your spiritual side.
