DQ 1:Do you think that all six dimensions of health are equally important? Why or why not?
As far as I'm concerned, 'health' refers to the choices that we make each day that affect our bodies and minds. Our health changes according to everything that we do.
This includes things like the food we eat, the people we spend time with, and the intellectual stimulation we give our minds. The effect that these have on our bodies are all included in the idea of 'health. ''Wellness' sounds more individual to me.
We should all be trying to reach our personal wellness goals. Personally, I put the most effort into my physical health, emotional health,and spiritual health. I think that everyone has a different point of view about what aspects of health are most important to them.
DQ 2:Does being physically healthy equate to having overall health and wellness? Being physically healthy doesn't equate to having overall health and wellness. Although being physically healthy is a big part of having overall health andwellness, there are other factors to consider when looking at the big picture. I think you can be in good shape but still have other problems that can really take a toll on your health as a whole. On the other hand, I think being physically healthy is a good way to build upon your overall health. So even though being physically healthy isn't the only thing you should be thinking about, it is definitely really important. I believe being physically healthy is just a little piece of the big picture. I believe I am a physically healthy person in general, but there are some days I am drained emotionally, and mentally. These days just being healthy physically just can't cut it.
In reading this chapter I think I do a pretty good job in keeping a healthy well rounded life. Just being physically healthy isn't going to work if everything else is out of sync.
