Adapted from Te Whare Tapa Whā, which looks at the four dimensions of wellbeing: Physical, Spirituality, Connectedness, and Mental & Emotional health.
Taha Tinana – Physical Health
Having optimal physical health provides a good base from which we can respond to our normal everyday activities. When our physical health isn’t very good it can lead to increased worry, to losing our ‘zing’ for life or reducing the amount of ‘good’ emotions we are capable of. It affects our resilience and makes it harder to bounce back from the knocks of life. Staying fit and well allows our mental health to flourish.
