Review # 3 – Optimal Wellness

Optimal wellness can be described as experiencing all of the following:

  1. Physical Health
  2. Mental Health
  3. Emotional Health
  4. and Spiritual Health

Optimal Wellness – Maintaining A Healthy Balance



Keeping all those aspects of our humanity in balance is an ongoing task we must renew every day of our lives.

In other words Optimal Wellness is achieved by keeping a healthy balance in those four key aspects of our lives Every Day!

Physical Health

As stated in Anti-Aging Secrets, physical health is a function of diet, nutrition, keeping hydrated with water, doing regular physical exercise and taking adequate rest.

Both Phytonutrients and Anti-Aging Secrets, provided important details of diet, nutrition, drinking water and taking adequate rest, all contributing to optimal physical health.

Again in both Phytonutrients and Anti-Aging Secrets, we recommended dietary supplements rich in antioxidants and offered customers Savings $$$ for Shopping Online.

Nothing Medically Wrong?


 

Even though your doctor cannot find something ‘medically’ wrong with you but you still don’t feel in good health, then you can be sure that you’re NOT experiencing Optimal Health.

If that is your experience you’ll need to consider weather the source of being ‘unwell’ is physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual.
 
To further explore if the source is physical, I’ll recommend a book by Ralph Golan, M.D, entitled Optimal Wellness. Click the following image for more:
 
 
 
Mental Health
 
Anti-Aging Secrets, recommended keeping your brain stimulated through mental exercises, this is the foundation for mental health.

You however need to build on this foundation by developing a healthy attitude of mind.

The United States Surgeon General defined mental health as “a state of successful performance of mental function, resulting in productive activities, fulfilling relationships with people, and the ability to adapt to change and cope with adversity.”

To achieve the characteristics of that definition, you would agree starts with an attitude of mind that leads to productive activities, etc., etc. That is why Kathi Kemper’s Mental Health, Naturally would be a valuable resource.

Emotional Health

There is a difference between Emotional Health and Emotional Intelligence.

That is the position of Dr. Doris Jeanette, a licensed Philadelphia psychologist who has specialised in healthy energy flow in the body and emotions.

She defined emotional health as the degree to which you feel emotionally secure and relaxed in everyday life. The more emotional health you possess, the more self esteem you have and you are able to express your emotions in healthy, assertive ways.
 
 

How Emotionally Secure Are YOU?



 
She says emotional wellness is when you have so much healthy flowing energy that you radiate joy. It is therefore a high degree of emotional health.

Emotional intelligence on the other hand is an academic, intellectual way of looking at emotional health. In his book Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman identified emotional skills as:

  • Identifying and labelling feelings
  • Expressing feelings
  • Assessing the intensity of feelings
  • Managing feelings
  • Delaying gratification
  • Controlling impulses
  • Reducing stress
  • Knowing the difference between feelings and actions

Those skills point to a definition of emotional intelligence as the ability to recognize one’s emotions or feelings as it happens, manage those feelings, recognize feelings in others, motivate oneself and handle relationships.

Spiritual Health

Imagine for a moment: you’re in top physical shape, you’re satisfied with your achievements in life and feel fulfilled and secure in your relationships with other people. BUT something seems missing!

You ask yourself: “Is this all that life has to offer? Is there some deeper meaning to life? Is there some reason for MY existence, for MY life?” These are the questions that point to the state of your spiritual health.

Your spiritual health is a function of:

  1. Your knowledge of the existence of a supreme creator or “God”.
  2. Your acceptance and belief in THE Supreme Creator or “God”.
  3. The quality of your relationship with God.
  4. The quality of your relationship with others informed by your relationship with God.

 
COMMON SENSE & LOGIC

In a search to get information about a ‘supreme creator’ or ‘God’ you can come across thousands of concepts ranging from ‘There is NO God’ to “Look in the mirror and you’ll see God”.

Common sense and logic will however tell you that those concepts including many contradicting others cannot all be accepted.

There has to be some logical, accurate information about the existence of a supreme creator and how the supreme creator can be discerned.

One of the best approaches to that search has been presented by Josh McDowell in his book Evidence That Demands A Verdict.
 
 

Mastery Over Matter – Walking On Water


 
MASTERY OVER MATTER

Another clue that could help in the search for a ‘supreme creator’ would be evidence that point to control over natural laws e.g. being able to walk on water at will or command a storm to be still and the storm obeys. That is, being able to perform ‘miracles’.

‘Miracles’ need to be tested by rigorous scientific research. Rigorous scientific research would reveal the difference between miracles and ‘magic’ tricks or hoaxes.

Rigorous scientific research would substantiate ‘miraculous’ or unexplainable events that point to the intervention of a supreme creator or God.

Summary

Enjoying ‘Optimal Health’ can therefore be summarised as being in top physical shape with a mental and emotional stability that generate self confidence and a knowledge of self, and one’s purpose in life, that brings about an experience of joy and peace in one’s relationships with God and others.
