When it comes to health and wellness, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Holistic wellness is a form of health care that looks at the whole person, including physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. It’s based on the idea that all areas of our lives are interconnected and that if one area is suffering, it can affect all other areas.
Physical wellness is the first pillar, the foundation of holistic health. Eating right, exercising, and getting enough sleep are essential components of physical wellness. But even more important is the relationship you have with your body... Do you love it? Do you listen to it? Do you understand it's messages? Also, our body stores (generational) trauma and emotional wounds, so working with the body through movement, breathwork, energy work, and regulating your nervous system are, to me, essential parts of holistic wellness coaching.
Mental wellness is the second pillar. It involves
developing optimal coping strategies,
engaging in activities that bring joy and satisfaction,
taking time for yourself to relax, reflect, and practice self-care
doing shadow work,
breaking through limiting beliefs and patterns, etc.
To me, mindset is "everything". But I call it the second pillar, because you won't win the battle with your subconscious mind with affirmations alone, so to speak. You can do all the mindset work you want, but if it's not embodied, if the path to manifestation is blocked (because of stuck energy in the body), you'll have a hard time changing your habits and achieving your goals.
Emotional wellness, the third pillar, is about understanding and managing your feelings. It’s about learning to express your emotions in healthy ways, being aware of your emotional triggers, and developing the skills to regulate our emotions. Our emotions are also the communicators of our body and Soul. They are the bridge between all our layers.
Finally, spiritual wellness is about connecting to something greater than ourselves. It’s about finding meaning and purpose in life and living a life of integrity and authenticity. Taking time to reflect on your values, beliefs, and purpose can help you tap into a deeper level of well-being.
Holistic wellness is about creating balance in all areas of your life. It’s about taking care of your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health so that you can live a life of balance and harmony. With the right approach, you can create a holistic plan, your personal wellness recipe.
If you like, I'd love to help you do just that.
