What is Wellness and Why is it Important?

Nowadays, in whichever life stage you are in or industry you are serving, there is a time when you say at least once a week, “I haven’t been able to make time for myself at all.” When you haven’t been able to reach your own goal, give yourself a supportive environment that will help both your physical and mental health. Having a hectic schedule is not conducive to the best form of wellbeing, and that is especially true because it is a major city.

Currently, people function on packed schedules. Heavy workload. There may not be much room in the schedule for self-care. Employees’ schedules are always packed with commitments outside of work, such as appointments, meetings, and paperwork. Investing in a wellness programme for yourself may do wonders for your morale, health, and productivity in the workplace.

So, what is wellness? Why is wellness important? Especially, when everything that is happening around us?

What is Wellness?

Wellness has many more contributing factors than just genes and lifestyle. The first step is realising just how much potential we possess. And the second is accepting responsibility for developing that potential. Every day, we have the choice to take one more step toward sickness or one more toward health and longevity.

According to the Global Wellbeing Institute, wellness is the intentional pursuit of actions, decisions, and patterns of behaviour that promote physical, mental, and social well-being. It is not just the absence of sickness or disability.

World History of Wellness

The concept of wellness is relatively new yet has deep historical origins. Ancient societies all throughout the world, from the East (India, China) to the West, had a common belief in the importance of health as a preventative and comprehensive practise (Greece, Rome).

Parallel to the rise of conventional medicine in the 19th century, a number of intellectual, religious, and medical groups emerged in Europe and the United States. These social shifts, which promoted treatment based on the whole person, natural remedies, and self-care as well as preventative medicine, laid the groundwork for modern health and wellness.

Yoga and the ancient Indian healing practice of Ayurveda were given high regard by ancient Indians for their beneficial effects on health and well-being. Two subsequent themes focus on these points.

Shareeramadyam khalu dharma-sadhanam is a concept used by the ancient clairvoyants to underline the value of health. Swasthya, or health, is the foundation of all human pursuits. True health is exemplified by a healthy body, and true health is necessary for the pursuit of spirituality.

In ancient India, the goal of life was to be happy and healthy for a century’s worth of autumns. Each person said the Vedic prayer, “Jeevaama sharadah shatam” (Let us live for a complete hundred years).

In many Indian homes, health is prioritised before schooling, responsibilities, and even employment, a fact that has been lost on many in the current generation.

Various facets of Wellness

Just as we read in the previous sentence, the concept of “wellbeing” is broad. The experiences we’ve had throughout our lives, as well as the way we were brought up, colour our distinct perspectives on the concept of wellness. In our view, well-being is a state of mind that is intentional, self-directed, dynamic, multifaceted, optimistic, affirmative, and open to everybody.

If we want to thrive and set an example for the future generation, we need to give equal priority to all aspects of health. Harmony in all respects is not necessary. Find your own unique balance between the aspects that really reflect who you are. Passivity will not get you there; rather, it is awareness, acceptance, and dedication that will get you there.

What you read below will help you understand the various facets of wellness clearly

Physical Wellness

Physical wellness, or “wellbeing,” means caring for your body so it can function well, especially when you need it the most. You achieve this by exercising, sleeping well, and eating well. This involves managing health issues and obtaining medical treatment. Wearable technology is regularly used to monitor health.

We often fail to become receptive to new ideas and critical thinking in today’s age of distractions, alerts, and an overabundance of information. It’s because all the information is disposed of within that 15-second time frame. Mental stimulation and creativity promote intellectual wellbeing.

Intellectual Wellbeing

Mental stimulation could simply mean just putting your phone down and being socially interactive, going for a walk or run, or reading something interesting to you. Secondly, be curious. Dissect everything you believe or know. Knowing the why of things triggers brain activity, encouraging inquiry and lifelong learning.

Emotional Dimension

We are emotional beings. Our needs are often met with disappointment or compassion. What we do when we ask ourselves how to handle such situations is what we accept as emotional intelligence. Although, that is our definition of emotional wellness, it might not be true.

Emotional wellbeing, as we all know, is about understanding why you do those things you do every time you are sad not just happy. How you handle life’s difficulties and failures. Emotionally healthy people concentrate on addressing their emotional needs, establishing resilience and coping abilities, and maintaining effective relationships and support networks.

Social Wellbeing

We are very well aware of this because of what we have been through during the pandemic. The need to go out and socially interact with people and the desperation with which we waited our favourite places to be functional again, gives an impression that we need to be surrounded with people in order to have a fulfilling life.

Social wellbeing emphasises enhancing communities, interacting with people, forming supporting social networks, and forging meaningful connections.

Spiritual Wellbeing

Spiritual wellness is knowing and accepting your position in the world. It’s knowing your life has a purpose beyond “things” and short-term satisfaction. You create your own destiny. Spiritual wellbeing involves doing good, being grateful, and spreading optimism.

When you reach spiritual wholeness, you’re at ease. You see problems as chances and realise it’s all part of your path. This approach lets you be flexible and adaptive to solve challenges. These talents help you reach your objectives quicker, build good relationships, make difficult choices, and enjoy life.

Financial Wellness

The ability to manage day-to-day spending, achieve long-term financial objectives, and build up a safety net in case of an unexpected financial setback. Having control over one’s financial situation may alleviate a lot of anxiety and help one to fully appreciate the benefits of achieving financial independence.

Those who have achieved financial security tend to worry less about their financial situation. This has a rippling effect, improving their emotional and physical well-being as well as their interpersonal connections.

Occupational Wellness

This determines our longevity as employees as well as our chances of moving up the professional ladder. To achieve a state of “Occupational Wellness,” you must learn to deal with the stresses of work and cultivate positive connections with your colleagues. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle entails striking a balance between work and play.

Having a job that you like going to each day might help give your life more meaning and purpose. This assurance might help us unwind and recharge while we’re not working. The constant demands of either our professional or private lives have the potential to overwhelm us and throw us off kilter.

We lose the chance to unwind, be creative, and bond with those closest to us when work takes over our lives. Balance between personal and professional responsibilities is essential to our health and happiness, and occupational Wellness encourages us to do just that.

How Can Tattvam Retreat Help You?

We take a “vacation” every year because it’s expected of us and because it’s what everyone else does. So, we force ourselves to take vacations so the leaves don’t collapse at the end of the year. Instead of relieving stress, it just serves to make us feel worse about ourselves before we ever go back to the pile of unread emails at work.

Instead of spending your vacation overindulging and feeling bad about it, take yourself to Tattvam Retreat and give yourself the nicest gift you’ve received in years. We all look forward to the time off work that a vacation provides, but if you choose to go on a health retreat with Tattvam, you’ll be able to do more than just unwind; you’ll also be able to make real progress toward some long-neglected health objectives and come home with a renewed sense of purpose.
