How To Receive Meals
FINDING BALANCE IN LIFE THROUGH THE SEVEN DIMENSIONS OF WELLNESS
When most people consider their health and well-being, they think of what they eat, how much they exercise, and the absence of disease.
Healing Meals knows it’s easy to overlook the other areas of daily living that contribute to our health, wellness, and quality of life. But, have you ever defined the dimensions of being that makes you, YOU?
Physical, Emotional, Spiritual, Intellectual, Social, Environmental, Occupational
Physical health is what we often equate to overall health. A balanced diet consisting primarily of plant-based whole foods, exercise, good hydration, and plenty of sleep are good practices that help to create physical wellness.
Emotional wellness is being aware of and accepting of your feelings with the ability to process them in a way that positively affects your circumstances. Practicing mindfulness can help us approach our emotions in a calm, understanding, and constructive way.
Spiritual wellness is having a deep connection with yourself and living out that truth. When we live a life of meaning and purpose, we can be more in harmony with ourselves and others. Spending time in nature often helps connect us to our inner knowing.
Intellectual wellness is being open to new experiences and expanding your knowledge in all areas of your life. Think of learning as exercising your mind every day; it's always a good day when you learn something new.
Social wellness means having the ability to make connections and create relationships with others. We thrive off other people's energy, so if it's happiness and ease that you seek, look to match that energy with whom you spend your time.
Environmental wellness is understanding the link between your daily practices, your health, and the health of the planet. Each of us has a personal responsibility to be aware of how we affect and how we are affected by our surroundings.
Occupational wellness is finding a place in the world that allows you to use your gifts and practice being the best version of yourself. Having a job, school, or volunteer opportunity that inspires you versus one that drains you can help to bring balance to all other dimensions of your life.
