Seven Areas of Wellness

Live Tenaciously and Grow Wellness

EMOTIONAL

“What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality” – Plutarch

Feeling and accepting our emotions and those of others is a sign of emotional maturing — so is managing them and taking responsibility for our actions. Striving for an optimistic outlook will build emotional wellness. These things will contribute to satisfying interdependent relationships.   One of the best ways to maintain harmony in my life is to create a healthy work/life balance and to set aside quality time to spend with friends and loved ones.  Find ways to add more laughter to your life.  It’s free and is the best medicine and great for the soul.


NUTRITION

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” – Hippocrates

The saying is so true, “We are what we eat”.  It’s not just natural, wholesome foods, but delicious, fun, and easy-to-prepare foods. Deprivation and willpower approaches is not an issue when you find the foods that work best for you, and we help our clients do exactly that.


FITNESS

“A body in motion stays in motion” – Isaac Newton

Many of us flinch when we hear the word “exercise” but it shouldn’t be that way.  Our bodies were made to move.  Doesn’t matter what the movement is, we were design to go. It could be yoga or just a simple walk.  Let’s find the movement you enjoy; fast pace or slow.  We are going to find activities that you enjoy, but most importantly: find ways to integrate movement into your daily life in a way that works well for you.  Think of your body as a friend and co-laborer who you care for lovingly, giving it foods and activities that enhance health rather than detract from it.


RELATIONSHIPS

“Where there is love, there is life” – Mahatma Gandhi

Food isn’t the only thing that feeds us. In fact, it may not even be the most important source of nourishment in our lives. Part of our whole-person approach includes enriching the lives of our clients by offering them tools to support and enhance their personal relationships. When your relationships are going well, the other things in your life take on a whole different perspective.  Social wellness is all about leaving the environments we touch better. That can mean a family, a circle of friends, co-workers or wider circles such as a community or the natural world.  They all play an important part in your well-being.As people become healthier, they might realize their integral role in building a stronger society.


CAREER & FINANCE

“Whatever your life’s work is, do it well” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Unless we’re doing work we enjoy, it’s hard to call ourselves truly “well”. Whether it’s learning to love the work you already have, or making plans to find something new, we work alongside you to implement strategies that help you feel productive and engaged. Your career doesn’t have to define you, but it should at least encourage you.

Financial woes getting the best of you? We can even help you come up with a plan to be more “fiscally fit”, one step at a time.

Pursuing a profession or volunteer activities that are meaningful, rewarding and consistent with personal values will translate into job satisfaction.


SPIRITUAL WELL-BEING

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Our level of connection to the weightier matters in life is critical to our overall sense of purpose and well-being. Healthy spirituality manifests in growth toward actions becoming more consistent with values.  For some, this can be as simple as spending more time communing with nature. For others, it’s a deeper involvement with the faith traditions of their ancestors. Prayer and meditation are universal to most religions and are great places to start.   Religions can emphasize love in action, reverence for life, honesty, respect for others and self and a modest lifestyle. For most, it’s getting a deeper relationship with God.

The key is to integrate a meaningful source of spiritual renewal into your life and find affirming ways to stay connected.  Spiritual Beings having a human experience is a Soul-centered approach to healing. Our daily problems and issues that may include substance abuse, alcohol abuse, depression and so on – have enormous value for our Soul.  We are here to help you regain control of your life. 

Being true to our own beliefs yet tolerant of others are signs of spiritual health.  Once you have control of your life, your life becomes a beautiful thing.

Our health is dynamic process because it is always changing.  We all have times of good health, times of sickness, and some maybe times of serious illness.  As our lifestyles change, so does our level of health.  Wellness is the search for enhanced quality of life, personal growth, and potential through positive lifestyle behaviors and attitudes.  If we take responsibility for our own health and well-being, we can improve our health on a daily basis.  We do this to live long, full, and healthy lives.  The pursuit of health, personal growth, and improved quality of life relies on living a balanced life. To achieve balance, we need to care for our mind, body, and spirit.
