The Six Pillars of Health and Wellbeing
Personal finances and all financial decisions impact other areas of life and directly impact physical and emotional health.
Mental health is a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, copes with the normal stresses of life, works productively and fruitfully, and makes a contribution to his or her community.
Moral & Spiritual Health
A person with good moral and spiritual health feels a sense of purpose in life and duty to ensure that their actions are righteous.
Physical health is important for overall well-being, it relates to how well someone can move their physical body to meet daily demands.
Good societal health revolves around the ability to form satisfying relationships with others within family, work, and community.
Professional health is embodied when a person feels that their work and work environment gives them meaning, and is supportive of health, safety, and well-being of employees.
