What does it mean to live well? Living well is about a balanced life in Christ. Many elements work together to create a balanced life including our emotional, mental, spiritual and physical health.
God is at work in and through all our interrelated dimensions–intellectual, emotional, social/interpersonal, vocational, physical, and spiritual–and is central to our groundedness and balance.
How we care for ourselves impacts our outlook on life. It affects our flexibility–physically, emotionally, and spiritually. When we are struggling physically, we often have less energy and less emotional tolerance. When we are emotionally out of balance, we may not feel motivated to care for our bodies. When we are distracted by physical or emotional dis-ease, our ability to communicate with God may also be disrupted.
We are multi-dimensional people and we need to take care of all aspects of our life.
