Optimal Wellness

Optimal Health/Wellness

The World Health Organization, defines health as a “state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."

The American Journal of Health Promotion describes optimal health/wellness as being a balance of five areas of health, emotional, physical, spiritual, intellectual and social health.  Optimal health/wellness focuses on mental health and healthful relationships, as well as nutrition and exercise.

 

Benefits

Optimal health/wellness achieving an overall satisfaction with one's life. People who enjoys optimal health can experience a number of benefits, including the ability to adapt to and manage life experiences and challenges, developing coping strategies for stress and the ability to relate to others assertively and flexibly.

Physical Health

Physical health differs for individuals depending on their age and circumstances. While everyone wants to be healthy to have a chance to enjoy life, the physical potential of a 25-year-old is different from that of a 70-year-old. An able-bodied person will have a different perspective from someone who has been disabled. Getting cardiovascular exercise, doing strength-training exercise, sleeping regularly and eating healthfully are all factors that can affect health. Genetic factors also play a role, but they are often out of an individual's control.

Mental Health

Few in society would argue that having a positive mental outlook is not an important part of being healthy. People may internalize problems and refuse to talk about things that may be bothering them, a report by the Canadian Women's Health Network explains. Instead of addressing a situation such as a relationship with a spouse, parent or child, they ignore it and refuse to discuss it with anyone. This may lead to outbursts of anger on unrelated manners. Unhappiness may result and there's no way that person can be fully healthy until issues are addressed.

Social/Intellectual Health

A person who works hard, exercises, volunteers to help others and addresses their mental issues often have a greater chance of living a more fulfilling life and feeling happier.  A fully functioning member of society can help a person lead a well-rounded life that allows a person to feel good about what they are doing every day.  If a person knows he should be trying to help others out and contributing to society but doesn't, it may result in a lack of fulfillment.

Spiritual Health

Finding a path that may be prescribed by a higher power, an individual may feel healthier about all of his/her day-to-day activities. Others may find a spiritual calling without a belief in a higher power, but the two often are associated.

Living Optimally

Living a healthy lifestyle may mean something different from one person to the next. For some, health is defined by living a disease-free life. For others, healthy is being able to play with grandchildren or perhaps adhering to a weekly exercise schedule. Though the definition of healthy may differ between people, living a healthy lifestyle is a fundamental component to achieving your optimal mental and physical well-being.  We look forward to being part of your journey to health.
