The World Health Organization’s definition of health is “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” More accurately, optimum wellness is having your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health all in balance and functioning optimally. In a nutshell THIS is Wholistic Health.
When one of these areas is out of balance, it’s going to have an effect on the others. They are all interconnected and related. To focus on one area while ignoring the others will eventually lead to a state of “dis-ease,” imbalance, and ultimately, sickness. By mental health I mean things like time management, budget, career, goal-setting, our purpose in life – do you even know why you get out of bed in the morning? Our spiritual and emotional health are hard to even separate – simply put, our good emotions are from God and our negative emotions are from the enemy. The basic foundation of our physical health is rest, water, exercise, good nutrition and good nerve supply.
