What Are The 5 Pillars?

 

We all want to be healthy. We all want to be happy. We all want to live long, beautiful and fulfilling lives – but what exactly does “healthy” mean?

Does it mean eating healthfully? Sure!

Does it mean getting rid of emotional baggage? Of course!

Does it mean having some fun? Most certainly!

When we talk about health, it mustn’t only include what we eat, or how much exercise is needed – but it must include a holistic attitude. This attitude looks at our entire beings, and not just our physical bodies.

And so, The 5 Pillars of Health was created.

Each of the 5 Pillars represents a different module that helps us achieve a balanced and healthy life.

The 5 Pillars include:

Physical Health

What we eat has a huge impact on how we feel and our productivity levels. Exercise is a key ingredient to keeping our bodies in tip top shape. This Pillar includes all things directly relating to our physical bodies.

Mental Health

The Mental Health industry has exploded in recent years – including new drugs, new pills and new areas of expertiese to help us “keep sane.” Real mental health can be achieved in a holistic way one that does not involve dependence on taking drugs.

Emotional Health

Dealing with stress. Dealing with difficult people. Dealing with our day to day responsibilities. We learn how to deal with our hang-ups effectively so that they do not weigh heavily on us, causing other health issues. Emotional health also deals with getting rid of all that fun baggage that accompanies us from childhood.

Spiritual Health

Whether you believe in a religion or not, spiritual health is crucial to ones well -being. Understanding and putting faith in a higher being – be it a G-d, a spirit, or just a presence, will help release negativity, anxieties and worries that keep us trapped.

Recreational Health

All fun and no play? Definitely not my motto! Phrases like “workaholic,” “burning the candle at both ends” or “Type A Personalities” are not examples of healthy living. Recreational health helps us remember that a day in the park playing ball and having good old fashioned “fun” can be just as important to a healthy lifestyle as much as eating fruit for snack.

*************

Each pillar is equally important and a person is truly healthy when each of their Pillars are balanced and in sync.
