Your Body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit – Look after it!

Defining Wellness

There are a variety of reasons that not all of us are healthy. However, good health is a good goal for us to go for. We may be struggling with a disability, frailty of years, an injury or something else. However, we can endeavour to care for and nourish ourselves through it all.

It’s a daily effort to ensure we stay healthy through nutrition, lowering stress levels, and many other ways. The Bible tells us that we are the temple of the Holy Spirit, so we are responsible for looking after ourselves to the best of our knowledge. I enjoy increasing my knowledge and perpetually learning how my mind, body, and soul works and how best to nourish them.

To understand the significance of wellness, it’s important to understand how it’s linked to health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), health is defined as..

“being a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

The Global Wellness Institute defines wellness as the active pursuit of activities, choices, and lifestyles that lead to holistic health.

 Wellness is an individual pursuit—we have self-responsibility for our choices, behaviours, and lifestyles—but it is also significantly influenced by our physical, social, and cultural environments. Wellness is a series of positive daily choices to live your life to the fullest! 

I want to support you in making the right daily choices for your wellness. I do this through coaching, counselling, speaking publicly, and writing.

Wellness is a modern word with ancient roots. The fundamental tenets of wellness as preventive and holistic can be traced back to ancient civilizations from India, China, Greece, and Rome. 

Various intellectual, religious, and medical movements developed as conventional medicine developed. However, focusing on holistic and natural approaches, self-healing and preventive care, these movements have provided a firm foundation for wellness practices.

The idea of wellness is broadly defined, but each has several similar components. I am interested in wellness for your soul as well. Faith in Christ will aid the wellness of your mind and body, which should not be overlooked.

To be able to maintain wellness, it is something that you desire and choose to pursue. It’s a choice you make in life that requires constant effort to achieve.

While associated with a healthy lifestyle, wellness goes beyond the confines of general health. It encompasses a positive outlook on your mind, body, and soul and is something we often have more control over than health.

Wellness has various dimensions and can be viewed as a quality, state, or process.

At face value, the idea of wellness may appear complex- but it need not be.
