What is health according to you? Lifting weights in the gym? Goals on your fitness tracker? Eating green vegetables in your fridge? Yoga and meditation? Different types of people have different meanings and understanding of health.

"Health is wealth” is a commonly used phrase all across the world. Mahatma Gandhi validated this in 1948 when he said: “It is health that is real wealth not pieces of gold and silver". He was alluding to the idea that health is what is needed for a society to prosper not monetary wealth. Health is a relative term. To some people, having six pack abs is being healthy. Others say, having a disease free life is being healthy. While some people think having a good metabolism is a sign of good health.

Your health is far more than the numbers on a scale or freedom from illness or disease. Healthy living is a practice of maintaining a good balance between physical, mental and spiritual health.

The 3 aspects of Healthy living

You can think of these three aspects of health—physical, mental and spiritual—as three legs on the stool of overall health; they work together to keep you strong and balanced..

"Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open." – B.K.S. Iyengar

Spiritual Health

Spirituality is the way you find meaning, hope, comfort, and inner peace in your life. Many people find spirituality through religion. Some people find it through music, art, or a connection with nature. Others find it in their values and principles.

If you want to improve your spiritual health, you can try the following ideas. Howerer, you must remember that everyone is different. What works for you may not work for others so do what you what you are comfortable with

  • 1.Identify the things that gives you a sense of inner peace, strength, love, connection and comfort.

These may include doing community service or social work, praying, meditating, reading inspirational books, walking in nature, having some quiet time in thinking, doing yoga, playing a sport aor anything that works best for you.

Balance between the 3 aspects of health

When you’re in good physical and spiritual health, but have a mental health struggle, you may feel off-kilter. And the other areas of your health may start to suffer, too. Depression, for example, might make you less likely to exercise or tend to your spiritual needs. Until you get help for the depression, staying healthy physically and spiritually might become challenging.

At the same time research shows that strong health in one area can improve health in another area

Having the mental state of optimism has been shown to contribute to a longer lifespan of 11% to 15% than those with a mental state of pessimism.

Researchers have found a 26% reduction in the odds of becoming depressed for each 15 minutes of running or an hour of walking.

Researchers have also found that there is a complex and non-linear relationship between spiritual health and the areas of quality of life, mental health and burnout.
