September 5, 2018
The Self Crafted Wellness Protocol is founded upon 5 Elements. When the themes of the elements are successfully integrated, optimal health expression can occur.
Balancing the 5 Elements of Wellness ensures health is reflected into your everyday life. The best cure for disease is to be Well. Being Well means maintaining Wholebody Wellness for a long and enjoyable life.
What are the 5 Elements of Wellness?
The 5 elements are foundations of an integrated map for Self Crafted Wellness. Stemming from these foundations are five pillars of health. Only when the elemental foundation is strong, will there be potential for the pillar to rise as a sturdy, stable and secure source of health.
Balancing all five elements means that you have five balanced health pillars holding up the true expression of Optimal You. Self Crafting your Wellness everyday is the key to a long and happy life.
What are the 5 Health Pillars?
Rising from the foundational elements are the pillars for health. An individual who balances all five pillars has ease in Being Well.
The 5 Pillars are
- mental health
- environmental health
- emotional health
- physical health
- spiritual health
Self Crafting your Wellness everyday, is the key to a long and happy life.
What if I focus on just one Element?
To have balanced Wellness, it is important to realise that all 5 Elements are equal in importance. There’s no one part that can be focused on as the key to health.
An example of this is seen in our culture’s obsession with diet or exercise. People who eat “the perfect diet” can still be unhappy. People who meditate all day and wear white, and do yoga, can spend every night awake with insomnia and have horrendous mood swings.
Wellness is an integrated weaving, that requires regular maintenance and attention through self care.
If it’s all important, why are there sections?
We sectionalise the Wellness map so as to find where we are giving much attention and not enough. Looking at the themes of each elements, and noticing where you focus (or not) your attention can be serve as an educational tool for knowing our own individual Wellness better.
