The World Health Organization defines health as: a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

 

The definition of health above can be very comforting especially when one is living with a chronic condition. Health and well being is all encompassing. In addition to physical wellness, health includes emotional health and relationships with others, career / avocational / volunteer pursuits, financial health, intellectual health, environmental health, and spiritual health. All of these components comprise one's optimal capacity for overall health and well being.

 

Which elements of your health and well being are filled to overflowing and which could use a little more attention? How can you live each day living life to the fullest given your gifts from God?
