The 5 pillars of Health and Wellness
The Holmes Organisation Our Concept of Health and Wellness
Wellness is a concept beyond health. True wellness is largely determined by how you live your life. After reading Achieving Fitness, it is my hope that you chose to live your from this day forward with vitality and meaning, ready and capable of change and growth, eating well, exercising and making good sound lifestyle choices.
Wellness has many facets: The first is of course physical-taking care of your body. Second, emotional wellness is a major factor in our daily lives, Optimism, trust, self-esteem, self reliance and self acceptance, self-control are pillars of support in a fit and healthy life.
Intellectual wellness is one’s ability to question, think critically, be creative, and curious, willing to try new things and motivated to work toward mastering them.
Spiritual wellness is a must but it can come in many forms. Finding love, compassion, forgiveness, altruism and joy are the rewards but also developing the ability to face anger, fear, anxiety, cynicism and pessimism especially in difficult times.
Social and environmental wellness are dimensions that include political action, good works on behalf of mankind, appreciation of art and nature, friends and family, support networks and a sense of community. These categories summarize our entire existence, the concept that all things are tied together, our actions and emotions and individuals and as population are woven together in the great tapestry of life. ‘Wellness’ is achieved through total fitness of the Mind, Body and Spirit. Obviously not a new concept but certainly a time tested one. Improved fitness and maximizing your potential in these areas leads to improved self-esteem and confidence, confidence leads to productivity and happiness. Being a powerful person of body and spirit on the inside emanates to all things around you, the people in your life and endeavors you take on that is complete or symbiotic wellness. We firmly believe in a dynamic and multifaceted approach to helping people achieve personal fitness goals, weight loss, improved sleep habits and healthy nutrition habits, and ultimately better ‘lifestyle’ choices through the constant growth and change that mind body and spiritual training offers.
We all are never absolutely fit in all aspects of our lives. We start to put it together when we are young when things aren’t so complicated. We age adapting and changing to the new challenges the world presents us. We forge the personal tools to deal and cope with life and our understanding of the human condition.
True Wellness is when you know that you are personally prepared and fit for the challenges of tomorrow, whatever they may be. The Holmes Organisation is proud to support and encourage Health and Wellness initiatives for it’s employees and to extend those opportunities to it’s clients.
Live Well….Work Well!
