Understanding Health & Wellness

In this blog, we are briefly discussing what is it that makes us healthy, and defining what health actually is. In understanding what health is we can better equip ourselves to be healthy. Good health and wellbeing bring many benefits for all of us. Healthier people tend to be happier, tend to play an active role, and contribute to society and the economy through their families, local communities, and workplaces.

According to HM Gov Department of Health, there is a two-way relationship between wellbeing and health: health influences wellbeing, and wellbeing itself influences health

  • Health is one of the top things people say matters for wellbeing
  • Both physical and mental health influence wellbeing, however mental health and
    wellbeing are independent dimensions, mental health is not simply the opposite of
    mental illness.

What is health?

We use a broad definition of health that encompasses holistic health, as well as wellbeing. This means we are not only interested in whether or not people are ill or have a health condition, but also in how healthy and well they are.

It’s important to understand the difference between wellness and health if we are to look after ourselves so we can be in optimal shape and enjoy life.

Definition of health

WELLNESS is a combination of  the 7 Pillars of health

All should be called to be healthy and balanced to achieve well-being or elements must be observed each element affects the other.

So to understand what health is, we need to be understanding what it is in relation to all aspects of the 7 Pillars.

You are a Holistic Being

So many of us just concentrate on our physical health and we ignore all the other elements. You can be physically healthy mentally and emotionally unwell. But the problem is that your mental state and emotional state will finally catch up with you and affect your physical health eventually. Then your social health will suffer which in turn will affect your mental and emotional health. Then all the pillars will be affected and that’s when life starts to suck!

So, we cannot separate any elements of our body but we must look at Health holistically – as a total whole.

The problem is that this takes a little bit of research to get our heads around. We do not automatically understand how to maintain the health of our bodies nor our minds or our emotions or even our social well-being, it is something that needs to be learned. This is why people who enjoy educating themselves are usually a lot fitter than those who don’t.

Science has learned how healthy your physical brain is that it actually affects your mental and emotional health. Both physical health and mental health can influence wellbeing

Learning to love learning is one of the key elements in your total health.

Ways to make physical health stronger

  • daily eating  nutritious meals and snacks
  • physical fitness activities that challenge your muscles
  • Regularly visiting Dr and dentist and other health providers for check-up’s
  • Avoid all harmful behaviours and habits

Ways to make Mental and emotional health Stronger

  • Improve your physical health 
  • Strengthen your Positive relationships
  • Ensure you have a positive and balanced self-concept and self-esteem 
  • Learn to  handle stress and challenges in daily living
  •  Deal with thoughts and feelings and the choices you make.

 In future blogs, I will be writing more about the 7 Pillars to help you gain and maintain holistic health.
