Value Wholeness — We need to include sexuality and sensuality in our conversation around mental wellness and invite both the therapeutic, wellness, spiritual and health communities to expand the dialogue and embrace this in their own practice, and self. But, as individuals we must also understand that we are WHOLE beings. As much as we wish to silo ourselves off, we really can’t. Consider the last time you had an argument with your partner or spouse. It likely interfered with your work day, how you talked to your employees or children, and maybe just bothered you all day. Your life does not happen in isolated experiences, and yet we try to compartmentalize ourselves. This leads to a fracture and a sense of alienation.
Often when we refer to wellness, we assume that we are talking about physical wellbeing. But one can be physically very healthy but still be unwell, emotionally or mentally. What are the steps we can take to cultivate optimal wellness in all areas of our life; to develop Mental, Physical, Emotional, & Spiritual Wellbeing?
