Did you know that health is more than just physical?
In total there are 6 elements of complete health, all of which influence our life in different ways. Complete health goes beyond how we think, feel and act. It is a state of being where all elements of our well-being are in balance.
So how do we make sure we are looking after all elements of our health?
Here are 6 simple tasks you can incorporate into your life to ensure you are working towards complete health.
Physical Health – Move your body each day and Fill your body with nutritious food
