Creating Wellness Unit 5 Blog Discussion
The two assignments were alike because they both require us to use our imagination process. By using the subtle mind practices "we can attend to our inner exeperiences and begin to transform what is ordinary health into integral health" (Dacher, 2006) On the other hand, "by using the loving-kindness practices with anticipation and perserverance, our initial faith will turn into confidence and then into certainty."(Dacher, 2006) I enjoyed having experienced them both.I now believe I can live and lead a more sensible, grateful, and thankful life because of these exercises.
2.Spiritual Wellness is a personal matter involving values and beliefs that provide a purpose in our lives. Optimal physical wellness is developed through the combination of beneficial physical activity/exercise and healthy eating habits. In my opinion, I believe that mental wellness means being free of depression and living your life to the fullest. Some examples include: setting goals and acheiving them, not feeling guilty about past hurts and troubles, and not beating yourself over something that you expected to happen but didn't. The connection between the 3 are manifested in my personal life each and every day because although I am still learning about life itself I feel that I have came along way than what I use to be. I am learning how to minimize the stressors in my life by praying about everything; as well as love myself first, eat right, and remember to believe in myself even when no one else believes in me. I have came along way but I still have oh so far to go.
