2 BODY – Physical Well-Being
The second level of well-being relates to BODY and provides the foundation on which we build our personal well-being.
Physical Well-Being is three dimensional:
Physical Well-being can be defined as:
- Looking good
- Plenty of energy
- Aging well
- Good mood
Physical Well-Being can be maintained by good habits:
- Sleep well 7 to 8 hours
- Meditate 20 minutes a day
- Exercise 20 minutes a day
- Sunshine, being outdoors
- Earthing, direct contact with the ground
- Steam / Sauna
- Plant Based Diet
- Drink plenty of water
And by avoiding bad habits:
- sitting for more than 30 minutes at a time
- eating after 7 pm
- taking in harmful substances
Physical well-being relates to procreation and the inner drive to find a mate and have a family. This also relates to the motivation to find creative ways to set up a home where the family can safely bring the next generation into the world and raise them to take responsibility for it.
Eastern religions refer to this element of well-being as the “sacral chakra.”
- healthy sexuality
The story of procreation is the story of physical health. Joy and pleasure surround each stage; birthing, parenting and providing. Our productivity each day is inspired by the need to provide for the family we have produced.
When we cook, bake, or garden, we are creating. Any time we take raw materials and transform them into something new we are using our creative energy in a way that satisfies our need to produce.
- having children
- producing food
- building a home
