Topics in Health and Wellness

According to the World Health Organization, also known as the WHO, the term health refers to a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.1 At the core of health and wellness is Spiritual Health – which is the innermost part of you that tells you who you are and it may help you discover a sense to the meaning of your life. Spiritual Health connects all the health topics together. From there, Spiritual Health can branch out into a variety of health topics such as Social Health, Occupational Health, Emotional Health, Physical Health, and Intellectual Health.

Social Health refers to a state of maintaining healthy and safe relationships. Occupational Health refers to health and safety at the work place. Emotional Health refers to an individual’s emotional well-being, expressing their emotions for meaningful social interactions. Physical Health refers to health as it pertains to our bodies as a physical entity. Intellectual Health refers to our mental wellbeing, whether we can critically think, problem solve as well as creative capability and imagination. All these branches complement our Spiritual Health, which tells us why we are here, how healthy we are or should be, as well as our purpose for living. Although one may not think of these diverse health topics consciously, their impact on human life is inevitable.
