The Aspects Of Life Wellness

Achieve balance and harmony across all major categories.

The wellness philosophy is made up of major life areas that work together to create and build a more whole and complete way of living. Each aspect involves achieving an optimal level of functioning in that area, and contributes towards improving quality of life. Each aspect is interconnected and directly affects and impacts the others.

The aim is to obtain a degree of balance and harmony across all aspects of health and wellness. At times one may overlap the others, but under or over-prioritizing or neglecting any one aspect for any length of time will cause it to be out of sync and out of balance with the others, thus having an adverse effects on your health and well-being.

The 9 Aspects of Wellness are Physical, Mental, Spiritual, Emotional, Social, Intellectual, Financial, Occupational, and Environmental. While the exact aspects of wellness could be debated, we believe the ones listed in this model includes all major life areas and can be easily broken down to smaller combinations.

Physical WellnessPhysical Wellness means respecting and taking care of your body by achieving a high state of physical well-being that includes physical fitness, physical nutrition and physical/personal care. The objective is to create a healthy lifestyle that's capable of moving you towards an optimal level of health.

Mental WellnessMental Wellness or mental health are terms used to describe how well the brain-mind is physically and operationally functioning. The brain is the "central command center" of the human body that generates and orchestrates the symphony of perception, thoughts, behavior and actions. The brain generates its own mental representations and behavior. It controls all basic functions of your body including our internal organs, movements, thoughts and emotions.

The brain is an electro-chemical computer where Mental Wellness can be considered the hardware and operating system and thoughts and emotions (Emotional Wellness) are programs that run on top.

Mental health is a term used to describe either a level of cognitive or emotional well-being or an absence of a mental disorder. It is a state of emotional and psychological well-being in which an individual is able to use his or her cognitive and emotional capabilities to function in society, cope with and adjust to the recurrent stressors of everyday living in an acceptable way. It's the ability to meet the ordinary demands of everyday life in a healthy manner.

Spiritual WellnessSpiritual wellness is the ongoing process of discovering and cultivating your spiritual inner self. Spirituality, spiritual wellness and faith can be defined as a believe in something and it can take on many different unique meanings and forms for each individual. Many factors such as religious faith, values, ethics, principles, morals, attitude and gratitude play a part in defining spirituality. Spiritual Wellness is the quest of discovering meaning, value and purpose in life that results in hope, joy, courage, inner peace and gratitude as well as demonstrating it through behaviors.

What is Aid and Attendance for Veterans?

The Veterans Administration offers Aid and Attendance as part of an "Improved Pension" benefit that is largely unknown. This Improved Pension allows veterans and spouses of veterans who require the regular attendance of another person to assist in bathing, eating, dressing, undressing, medication dosing, or using the restroom to receive additional monetary benefits. It also includes those who are blind or a patient in a nursing home because of mental or physical incapacity. Assisted living facility care also qualifies.
