I think that wellness is a function of the interdependence between the components of wellness. The first level of wellness is physical wellness. Physical wellness is the ability to remain aware of what you are doing and the choices you make. It is the ability to remain aware of your body and to recognize when things are out of balance. Physical wellness is a function of the second level of wellness which is psychological wellness.
Psychological wellness is, “Having a strong sense of self-esteem, a clear sense of right and wrong, and the ability to be honest with yourself.” The third level of wellness is emotional wellness. Emotional wellness is the ability to be aware of your needs and to respond appropriately to them.
A person who is healthy on the physical level is also healthy in the sense that they have strong motor skills, they can do well in a sport, and they can even do well in a conversation. A healthy person on the physical level has the ability to do these things while maintaining the ability to maintain a good balance in the mental and emotional areas as well.
Self-awareness is the ability to know where the need is and what the response should be. There is a difference between the mental and emotional components of wellness, though. We are human beings, not something that floats in a galaxy. We are living beings who have needs or wants and if we don’t meet them we will feel disappointed, hurt, or angry.
The problem is that we can be so disconnected from our needs that we can be so disconnected from our feelings. When we find ourselves in a bad mood, we don’t know why, and we end up feeling angry or hurt. We can even be so disconnected that we don’t even recognize when we have a bad mood. We can also be so disconnected from our feelings that we can be angry, hurt, sad, or disappointed.
This is a common problem with the digital age. We have all kinds of apps that promise to help us manage our problems, but they do not come with the understanding that we have a problem. This is even worse than the classic problem of needing a “proper” fix. We have a problem, but we don’t know what, and we end up feeling bad, confused, sad, or disappointed.
In our world, we can get help through Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and a whole host of other forms of social media. It is not uncommon to get to know someone through these social media sites, but we are often not aware of any of it because we are so connected to our devices. Our phones, computers, and tablets are our constant companions.
The same goes for the way people think. We are continually bombarded with conflicting messages about what is and isnt possible.
This is so true. People are constantly bombarded with conflicting messages about what is and isnt possible. Whether it is food, exercise, or health, people are constantly bombarded with conflicting messages.
In general, there is a tendency in society to believe that the only way to be healthy is to be unhealthy, to believe that everyone is sick. This is not true. Being healthy is the key to living well and it takes practice and time to get good at it. But with practice and time, one learns to enjoy and trust one’s body. So the idea of the interdependence of the components of wellness actually makes sense.
