Continuing the previous blog from last week – Self improvement through deep health. Pt. 1, let’s understand the last 3 areas and find out how to develop our own program that suits our lifestyle. But remember that deep health is the whole person approach, a whole life approach to health.
The social area – deep health.
Now we talk about your tribe. But before, let’s talk about your immediate connections. Social dimension covers your relational life. Do you have a supporting family and friends network that you can access. I say access because of our today’s world. Gone are the days where families used to live together from one generation to the next and friends grew up on the same elane, got married at the same time and had kids living nearby as neighbours. That might have been paradise for some, but today, mayn move to the cities in pursuit of a better life, right?
So lets say “access”. You can access your friends and family via phone call, video call. Bottom line is that the relationship is strong and valuable. Nobody is draining anybody. All parties involved are building the relationship together. This also applies to your friend circle, your work space and even to distance networks, including online. Building a healthy relationship to friends and family, as well as to strangers online, can impact our physical health for the positive and vise versa. When you surround yourself with people who share values you respect (see I did not say similar values), values you respect and they respect your values, you can grow.
Your environment matters – deep health.
Wao, this is so important, especially for entrepreneurs living in the so called emerging countries. I refuse to actually label these places emerging, because it is often based on perspective. For example – tech emerging. However, when we talk about the environment, we talk about your immediate environment and how it impacts you. I remember the noise I had near my work space in Lagos. It was a generator and it was consistently loud as the power supply just failed regularly. So everyone nearby had to turn on their generators. It was impossible to work. To get to a quiet place on the Island, a more luxurious district where people could afford soundless generators, I had to drive through the city and get stuck in a 4 hours traffic.
At the end of the day, I felt already exhausted before resuming work. This is a massive issue for entrepreneurs. This state of stress imposed by the environment you live in, might not even be worth it, especially when it affects your wellbeing. Do you feel safe and secure in your space? Does your environment support your health and wellbeing? Remember in the first blog on deep health where I shared my one personal story, I talked about how I had to change my kitchen to create a supportive environment for healthy cooking. I will definitely post a video on my Youtube Channel showing you what and how I changed my environment to support my goals.
When you find existential purpose, life is sweet!
Wao! This is the core of deep health. Staying motivated and inspired to balance the different dimensions of your life often depends on your WHY. Do you feel a sense of meaning and purpose? Have you found that thing that makes you extremely fulfilled? I am getting some great life coaches to expand on this because this is hughe.
3 takeaways from this blog
- Find your tribe and build a great relationship.
- Your environment is key. How can you make it favour your goals?
- Finding an existential purpose is the core foundation that connects all the other deep health dimensions.
