A wellness series - Part one: The Physical Domain

The Physical Domain

Have you ever found yourself stuck in a cycle of unhealthy relationships, toxic patterns of behaviour or an overwhelming feeling of “Eh, there must be more than this?” We have all been here at some point, I like to think of it as our internal computer telling us it’s time for a service – Take stock of your wellness. So much of the time, when we feel like this we need to look for where the imbalance is in our body, mind and soul. We are going to take an in-depth look at what makes up our wellness and how we can start to regain some balance. We must first look at what wellness is and then dissect these pieces to better understand what is required from us to be the healthiest versions of ourselves.


Wellness is more than just the absence of illness, it includes your emotional, social, physical, spiritual and creative segments of who we are. Wellness is an awareness and the process of change and growth within these areas, to live a high-quality life that is fulfilling and healthy on all levels.

I like the how the wellness institute describes it for us as "a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential." - The National Wellness Institute
