How to find balance in Your life?

Is your life out of balance?  Do you feel mentally sluggish, emotionally drained every day?

 

How to balance your emotional, mental, physical and spiritual needs? Wellness and well-being impact the way you feel about your life and the approach you take to living every day. 

 

Wellness is much more than just our physical health, exercise or nutrition, it is a lifelong process of making decisions to live a more balanced and meaningful life in different dimensions. There are always opportunities for enhancing our wellness. A good way to start is by evaluating your current state and establishing goals towards a fuller sense of well-being. 

What is a “Wellness Wheel”, and how does it work?

A Wellness Wheel is a visual guide that is used to assess all areas of one’s health.It is a continuous and active process of reaching optimal health in which a person becomes aware of or makes choices towards a more holistic existence. We often think of health and wellness in terms of fitness and diet, but there are so many other aspects to consider.

 

There are several types of wellness wheels, each highlighting different aspects of wellness. It can assist us in understanding this ongoing and active process for ourselves.

 

Amongst all Wellness Wheels, the most well-known ones are the 10 Dimensions of Wellness. So, let us straight away dig into the 10 Dimensions of Wellness, and its purposes.

I invite you to take this self-assessment, a Wellness Wheel, the 10 Dimensions of Wellness. You can use this self-assessment tool to determine the areas of wellness where you are thriving, as well as those that may need greater attention. Taking this assessment will also help you to reflect on components of health that you may not have considered or awared before. You can rate yourself in each aspect of your life on a scale of 1-10. (10 = Doing really well, 1 = Not at all )

Step 2

Think about one more thing you would like to do (or could be doing better) to further enhance this dimension of wellness.

Plan out or set a goal for each of the components on your Wellness Wheel, and hang it or paste it somewhere so that you will see it regularly, referring to it once in 3 days or once a week for evaluation.

Interconnectivity of Each Area

When we talk about the wellness wheel, it’s all about the components that are interconnected and essential to living a healthy and balanced life. It reminds all of us to improve our sense of well-being, focusing on just one area is insufficient, rather we must concentrate on all areas of our lives. You can regain your balance by knowing what you exactly need and make changes accordingly.
