Many people have heard the term holistic wellness before but not many people know what it actually means or how to practice it. There are six different components of holistic health. The first is of course physical health which includes sleep, nutrition and exercise. Emotional health also plays a major role in our lives because when we are aware of our emotions we can see how they affects our decisions. Finally, mental health helps us focus on how our brain functions and the influence it has.
- Physical health is the realm of traditional medicine but it is not overlooked in holistic wellness. Physical health encompasses sleep, nutrition, exercise, hormones, and the environment.
- Emotional health in an emerging area of wellness and as a part of holistic well-being it focuses on day to day moods, relationships, and livelihood.
- Social health as a part of holistic well-being focuses on our connections to family, friends, and the wider community.
