The Big Five

I've broken "Health" into five major categories, none of which is more or less important or significant than any of the others (despite what the magazines say):

1. Mental Health
2. Emotional Health
3. Physical Health
4. Spiritual Health
5. Relational Health

They mix and mingle and play with and off one another. Every so often I sit down with my notebook and assess my life, breaking it down into these 5 categories. It's the best indicator I've found for how I'm really doing. Every time I realize that I've elevated one area above the rest, neglecting parts of my self that deserve to be taken care of.
