There is wealth in diversity. When we diversify we flourish, diversity in thoughts, exercise, diet, healing modalities, conversations, friendships, entertainment and more; Diversity is simply another way to look at holistic health. Taking one road and splitting it into multiple avenues. Let’s take exercise as an example, if we have two athletes A and B. Athlete A is physically gifted and trains hard but tends to stay in one lane, physical training and growth. Athlete B is not as naturally gifted but finds the edge in diversifying their approach. Athlete B trains hard but uses recovery protocols to heal faster and train more often, seeks advice from professionals and peers to become more knowledgeable in the field, reduces stress in everyday life by having a healthy mindfulness routine, understands what foods allow them to perform better and feel their best and in turn now knows their self much more in depth. Who do you think would have an advantage in this scenario?
Holistic health is an understanding of oneself in entirety. The physical self, the emotional self and the spiritual self are all connected through you, when one falters all become affected. Maybe your emotional self is incredibly stressed from work or life, this may cause physical discomfort and tension in the body, likewise with the spiritual self. These three pillars of YOU (the physical, emotional & spiritual self) are always in communication with one another and always in communication with you, to understand ourselves better we just have to sit and listen to the message that is being conveyed.
