Let’s discuss…Whole means to be in an undamaged or unbroken state, to be intact, entire, all of and in one piece. It represents a thing (entity) that is complete in itself. On the other hand the word “hole” is defined as a hollow place in a solid body, a small or unpleasant place, depression, indentation or cavity. What is commonly referred to as living from a place of “total” wellness and health by aligning the mental, physical and emotional bodies (mind, body and soul) has been popularly called “Holistic Living”. However, there is a contradiction going on here. The spelling of the word “Holistic” and its meaning indicates that something is missing. In order to live from a place of wholeness, our mindset and thinking must be from a place of wholeness.
Dr. Jewel has coined the term “Wholistic Living” to fully encapsulate the true meaning of living a life where the mind, body and soul are balanced….creating harmony inside and outside of the body.
Think wholly, be well and then live well!!
