How to Live Holistically

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts – Aristotle

Holistic health focuses on the concept that your health depends on many variables and three principles can be applied every day in your life.

Mind

You focus consciously on your thoughts and use the mind to make conscious decisions. It is your mind that is responsible for your reasoning, beliefs, emotions and attitudes.

Body

Your physical body is home to the nerves, organs and other biological and physiological systems which make up a human body. It is here that you store negative and positive energy. Your body is used to interpret the environment around you through sensory perceptions: sight, smell, taste, touch and sound. Your body is the first of your being which experiences symptoms of imbalance and illness.

Soul

It is in your soul where you find your passion and purpose for life. This is where your true self exists – it is the centre of your being. Understanding, knowing and nourishing your soul can help you find your true meaning in life.

The guided healing meditations have been designed to help you tap into and unlock the potential of your mind, body and soul.

Living a wholisitc life involves taking care of your entire self – mind, body and soul – to find balance in all aspects of your life. It involves recognising that the cause of illness can be mental, emotional or physical.

The following practices can assist you on your journey to live a wholistic life.

  • Practice gratitude
  • Self-care
  • Practice mindfulness and manage stress
  • Make healthy food choices
  • Movement and exercise
  • Intention and Growth
  • Build and maintain social connections
  • Explore holistic medicine
  • Environmental and sustainable living 
  • Remove toxic personal and professional relationships

There is no right or wrong to live a holistic lifestyle, it is unique to each individual. It requires you to make intentional choices to care for your entire self.
