Integrated Personal Wellness Provides
the Quality of Well Being.
Integrated Personal Development
Comes as Integrated Personal Wellness is Increased. We Discover an amazing knowledge of our uniqueness, strength and undiscovered skills and talents we did not know we had, and find the Ways to Personally Develop them.
With a relatively small amount of time and effort, you can increase your personal wellness, and quality of well being. You have life responsibilities, the change is finding those times between responsibilities. Eventually, as your integrated wellness and personal development increases, you will handle your responsibilities better, and find even more quality time for “you.” When you feel good about yourself, you have an added strength to take on the demands of life. You also have increased prevention of many health conditions that require some form of treatment. Even when health conditions do emerge, having a sense of well being and a strong self can provide you a sense of self confidence and energy to proactively control/improve those conditions. If you simply include an integrated personal wellness program you will find you can handle not only health conditions, but also the emotional and mental strains that come from added demands in your personal, social, work life, as well as cultural demands placed upon you.
There are, and have been, numerous “programs” that promise life quality improvement, personal success, and even spiritual enlightenment. All too many of these are simply money making ventures, or worse, cults. The Replenish Vitality Institute is based on decades of scholarly study of health sciences and all the major spiritual traditions. There are no fees, or monetary investments to what the Institute offers. The Institute’s goal is to provide you not only with a framework of knowledge and offerings that you can explore and use. but also to provide a framework that can be integrated into education and work environments. Integrated Personal Wellness and Integrated Personal Development should be a primary cultural value that is provided, without charge, to strengthen any culture, person by person.
In such a framework of knowledge and teaching, both personal wellness and personal development involve body/mind/spirit integration. Health sciences are doing more and more to establish the mind/body integration. Spiritual integration is not based upon religion, but upon thousands of years’ old tenets found across major religions. These common tenets form the basis for mind/body/spirit integration.
With the lack of cultural endorsement and investment in the whole person, families and/or friends are often the ones that encourage wellness and personal development. Those wonderful people who “see” who we are and can become, and provide the encouragement. (There are also people who would control who you become, beware.) Without a particular inner strength and self direction and discipline, or others who bring out the best in us, there are “empty places” within. (The musical piece provided on this website, “Locked Ache” speaks to this in what words cannot.) Personal stress/anxiety and depression, often set in. Thus, a great majority of people rely upon unhealthy compensations and gratifications to dull the stress and strains, or even boredom, This can lead to a spiraling of lack of health, inability to function, and personal failure. In the 21st century, societies will enter times of chaos, but out of this will come a much better societal organization and governance, including an increase in the value of wellness activities and technologies. There is already evidence of this in personal wellness technologies and opportunities that have taken hold in the first decades of this century.
You will find more and more that your workplace and health plans are emphasizing “Wellness Programs.” They are discovering that depletion leads to health conditions that drain the person; thus placing greater strain on healthcare systems and decrease employment productivity. “Unbalanced” individuals can also lead to increasingly erratic behavior that adversely affects one’s own life, other lives, the society, and ultimately the environment of all life. One of the greatest human achievements of the 21st century will be when there is global acknowledgement that the most crucial resource is “an integrated person, who has developed their unique skills and talents, (not individuals shaped into some sort of cultural image).” The tragedy has been the reversal of human perception regarding you as an individual. The fear of individuality has led to molding the individual into what will best contribute to the success of a culture. Enforced morality and norms of behavior are mandated. This has all too often led to disasters if individuals bought into this; and for those who do not achieve the expectations, a spiraling loss of self-esteem, and wellness. Opposite to this, is placing great emphasis on personal wellness and development, in which there is an awareness and value placed upon one’s own life as well as all other life. People become more responsible and contribute more.
Begin with yourself, include a dedication to your own personal integrated wellness and development. Contribute to bringing this to others. This is the way to erasing Healthcare crises, crime, lackluster personal motivation, etc. This is the way to an integrated world flourishing and self-sustaining.
What You Can Do Now
People may judge you for what you do, have, or achieved, but you need to remember that you are much more than that, and take on your personal development to develop the best of who you are. As one saying puts it: “You are not what you do and gain, you are what you are as a person.” Gaining all the riches of the world can leave a person empty in the depths of their being. Life is a journey, not a “this is all there is.” Time is but a continuous series of opportunities that you either make the most of, or lose forever. Live the journey, maximizing your personal integrated wellness and personal development. You will know your progress as you become more aware of yourself and the life around you — finding that you care for both equally. You will contribute more to life this way than someone who limits both who they are, and what they do simply to gain wealth or stature. As you read this, take a moment to intuitively assess your level of personal wellness and how much you have put into personal development.. There is no guilt, because societies have yet to provide you what you need. Whatever your personal assessment, The Replenish Vitality Institute is meant to provide you with knowledge about integrated personal wellness and development; as well as, support, direction, and a variety, and range of activities. You should not be alone in improving and sustaining your well being. The hope is that what you find and enter into here eventually will be a societal emphasis. In the meantime, you deserve the support provided here. You can “jump in” and go explore “YOU” programs, or delve into the knowledge bases. You can go enjoy the music, photography, or writings. Choosing where to go from this moment, is the beginning of listening to your intuitive mind. There is no regiment or specific steps to follow. But, continuous steps you must take.
