Wholistic wellness for adults has as its pillars physical, emotional, spiritual, social, occupational, environmental, financial, and intellectual components. Ideally, if one has had a balanced social and emotional education as a young person, one emerges with skills for healthy living in all these areas. A balanced life has similar levels of energy invested in each of these areas, resulting in a life where one is able to impact the world to achieve what one considers important and of value, while enjoying this life.
Mindfulness with a non-religious, stress reduction focus teaches adults to attend to the physical, emotional and environmental elements of their lives in the present moment in ways that give them insights into the spiritual, social, occupational, intellectual and financial parts of their lives in order to address them with their own innate wisdom.
Well teachers and well parents have skills that they can apply with artistry to living and working with young people.
