Holistic Wellbeing Program is ideal for those who are looking to live a happy, healthy and balanced life because it integrates all main aspects of wellness. To have a true holistic understanding of our wellbeing, we must look at our physical body, mental body, emotional body and energetic body as a whole entity. When you choose a holistic wellness program, you are saying yes to a holistic rather than a linear approach to wellbeing, which will help you to transform your life for better in the long run.
Wellness is the condition of being in optimum health. It is a holistic blend of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being–the result of consciously choosing to live a quality life. The path of natural health and wellness is a life-long journey that requires personal responsibility and commitment.
Holistic Wellbeing emphasizes the importance of the whole human entity and the interdependence of its parts. It is the recognition that what affects one part or system affects the whole body. A holistic approach to health is multi-faceted and mindful of the consequences of our habits and actions.
Contrary to what we see on social media, TV and in magazines, wellbeing goes well beyond the physical body. To be truly healthy and fit, we need to look at all aspects of fitness, including mental, emotional, spiritual fitness and energetic wellbeing. Working to improve our Holistic Wellbeing in all these areas can only improve our lives and is work worth doing.
Elements of Holistic Wellbeing:
Balance comes in physical form, emotional form, and spiritual form. Being in balance may mean something different to each individual.
Holistic Wellbeing is made up of physical health, emotional nurture, mental stimulation, focus & clarity, spiritual growth as well as energy balance. With Holistic Wellbeing, each aspect is a reference to the WHOLE. This includes the body, mind, emotion, spirit and energy. The whole person is seen in relationship to the world in which the person lives. By pinpointing and understanding the source of the obstacles that prevent you from living life fully, you will be able to transform all these aspects of your life.
At the Integrated Wellbeing, we understand that well balanced life encompasses all our parts- not only the physical body. Our goal is to serve, educate, support and empower our clients to improve and maintain their overall health and wellbeing through healthy lifestyle choices and to create a culture of wellness among us.
We integrate modalities like Personal Training, Healthy Nutrition Education, Gut health protocols, reducing inflammation protocols, NLP, Hypnosis and Advance Energy healing, to achieve the deep, lasting results people seek on the journey to the lives they were born to live.
Taking care of your body is a powerful first step towards mental and emotional health. The mind and the body are linked. When you improve your physical health, you’ll automatically experience greater mental and emotional well-being.
The physical aspect of life includes our health and the way we treat our bodies. This includes what we consume, how often we exercise, keeping our bodies clean and fresh, as well as our posture and how we carry ourselves.
Things we can to do to attain Physical Wellbeing:
Find a way to be physically active every day. This could be anything from joining a gym to just dancing by yourself in your room. Do something that you are comfortable with and make it fun, whilst also seeking out new challenges.
Choose exercise that suits your personality type. Don’t forget those sports you used to like to play as a kid! And if you have to, you could even borrow your girlfriend’s Wi iFit. Exercise is a powerful antidote for stress, anxiety, and depression.
- Eating a well balanced diet will help keep your body healthy.
- Eating foods that are Gut Friendly and that reduce inflammation.
- Maintain a regular sleep schedule; try to get 7-8 hours of sleep every night.
- Get a dose of sunlight every day. Sunlight lifts your mood, so try to get at least 10 to 15 minutes of sun per day. This can be done while exercising, gardening, or socializing.
- Limit alcohol and avoid cigarettes and other drugs.
Our body is the most precious gift we have and without it, we cannot exist. If we don’t stay healthy, we certainly cannot embrace and enjoy all the other aspects of life. For that reason, loving our bodies is the very first step on the road to happiness. No matter where we are starting from, no matter how irreversible we think our bad health may be, it is never too late to start changing our habits. A healthy body equates to a healthy mind, and by taking better care of ourselves we will increase our confidence, motivation and control over our life situations.
If you do not take care of your body, you will limit your ability to embrace other aspects of your life. It is more than just looking and feeling good about yourself – it is also about living a life of longevity and limiting the suffering from potential illness and disease.
Spiritual Wellness or Wellbeing
Spiritual Wellness or Wellbeing is a personal matter involving values and beliefs that provide a purpose in our lives. While different individuals may have different views of what spiritualism is, it is generally considered to be the search for meaning and purpose in human existence, leading one to strive for a state of harmony with one’s self and in others, whilst working to balance inner needs with the rest of the world. Spirituality can sometimes be the most overlooked aspect to life. I define it as “the relationship between our self and the world.” In many ways, our spiritual life is what defines our core, foundation, purpose, identity, and our reason for living. It permeates in all that we think, say and act. It is also how we view ourselves in relation to the world. Our spirituality determines our position of personal power. We can let the world crush us, or we can let it sit in the palm of our hands. Our relationship with ourselves has a deep impact on our relationships with others.
Things we can to do to attain Spiritual Wellbeing:
Be creative! When we express ourselves through things like art, music, or writing, we are developing emotional and spiritual intelligence; we are turning our ideas and intentions into reality.
Emotional Wellbeing refers to the ‘feeling’ component; to express and display emotions comfortably, effectively and in a healthy manner. Feelings of self-esteem, self-confidence, self-efficacy, trust, love, and many other emotional reactions and responses are included within this component. This also involves building emotional resilience, and seeking help for depression, anxiety and stress-related issues.
Emotional Wellbeing should not be viewed as the absence of emotions, but the ability to understand the value of your emotions and using them to move your life in a more positive direction. Emotional health is an important part of overall health. People who are emotionally healthy are in control of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours: they can cope with life’s challenges. They can keep problems in perspective and bounce back from setbacks. They feel good about themselves and have good relationships.
Being emotionally healthy does not mean you are happy all the time. It means you are aware of your emotions. You can deal with them, whether they are positive or negative. Emotionally healthy people still feel stress, anger, and sadness, but they know how to manage their negative feelings. They can identify when a problem is more than they can handle on their own.
Emotional Wellbeing is the ability to deal with whatever comes your way. This is not the same thing as being tough. In fact, someone who is emotionally fit can recognize when they are struggling and ask for help without shame. Emotionally fit people understand how stress affects their lives, and they work to deal with it effectively.
Improving our Mental Wellbeing is vital because we all want to feel good- both about ourselves and about the world around us. We all want to get the most from our lives. However, there is evidence that good mental wellbeing is not only about feeling good, it is also important for our physical health, and for helping us achieve the goals we set for ourselves.
Evidence suggests that there are five steps we can all take to improve our mental wellbeing:
- Connect – connect with the people around you.
- Be active –find an activity that you enjoy and make it a part of your life.
- Keep learning – learning new skills can give you a sense of achievement and a new confidence.
- Give to others – even the smallest act can count- whether it’s a smile, a thank you or a kind word.
- Be mindful – be more aware of the present moment, including your thoughts and feelings, your body and the world around you. Some people call this awareness “mindfulness”.
When energy flows from your body without disruption, you are in perfect wellbeing, however when this energy is out of balance, a disease occurs. Imbalances can be physical or emotional. Energy Balancing practices aim to restore this balance.
Energy Balancing is also known as Energy Healing, or Energy Work. It is the process of gently removing imbalances and blockages from our body. When the body’s energy is balanced, the whole human entity works more efficiently. Energy Balancing is the foundation of many ancient healing techniques like Pranic healing, Theta healing, Reiki healing, and in present times, it is beginning to be understood by quantum physics.
Things to know about Energetic Wellbeing:
Everything that exists, whether it be physical, audible, visual, or emotional, is made of pure energy.
All energy vibrates.
The different vibrations transmitted from energy is what makes one thing different from the other another.
Your vibration is specific to you!
The physical body has tightly packed energy called “matter.”
At the subatomic level, energy and matter are interchangeable.
There is an Energy Field that extends beyond the physical body (the Aura) which can be seen by some, and felt by those who have had the proper training.
Each emotion has its own unique vibration.
The energy vibrations of your body can become imbalanced, leading to emotional and physical dysfunction.
During our Holistic Wellbeing Program, we guide our clients to improve and maintain their overall health and wellbeing through the best and most efficient lifestyle choices. Every person is unique, and that’s why we are committed to providing a range of methods that can be easily implemented into your everyday life.
