Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth. The World Health Organization defines it as “…a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity” and The National Wellness Institute defines wellness as “a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential”.
Our main aim at The Essential YOU is to help you do just that using the wonderful power of essential oils and natural products. In fact, our whole philosophy is underpinned by the Wellness Pyramid opposite, beginning with the foundational health of eating right and quality supplementation.
Why wellness matters…
Maintaining an optimal level of wellness is absolutely crucial to live a higher quality life. Wellness matters. Wellness matters because everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being. In turn, our well-being directly affects our actions and emotions. It’s an ongoing circle. Therefore, it is important for everyone to achieve optimal wellness in order to subdue stress, reduce the risk of illness and ensure positive interactions.
The dimensions of wellness…
There are eight dimensions of wellness: occupational, emotional, spiritual, environmental, financial, physical, social, and intellectual. Each dimension of wellness is interrelated with another. Each dimension is equally vital in the pursuit of optimum health. One can reach an optimal level of wellness by understanding how to maintain and optimise each of the dimensions of wellness. At The Essential YOU we show you how to do this, harnessing the power of essential oils, whole food supplementation and other natural products, to help overcome any barriers to wellness.
