What is wellness consciousness? A healthy group endorsed higher levels of wellness consciousness than an unhealthy group did. Wellness consciousness refers to awareness of one’s thoughts and judgments. The less conscious person is more vulnerable to automatic thoughts, judgments and emotions. By cultivating wellness consciousness, one can take charge of their own health. However, if a person aspires to be more conscious, they must develop a discipline to remain focused and aware of their thoughts.
In addition to awareness of one’s physical health, wellness consciousness involves an awareness of one’s environment. An individual’s environment has a profound impact on how they feel. For instance, someone living in a tropical rain forest may experience seasonal depression. This negative environment has an adverse effect on one’s social, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Ideally, a person aims to create an environment that fosters their sense of purpose and contentment.
The concept of wellness is not new. In fact, the term was coined by Hollywood star Jane Fonda in the 1970s, who made fitness and nutrition an obsession. These days, consumers view wellness from a broader perspective, taking into account a person’s overall health, appearance, and mental state. More than ever, consumers have more choices than ever. The result is a market filled with health-conscious products and services. It’s no wonder this segment is growing so quickly.
Awakening wellness consciousness requires a profound shift in perspective. The physical body cannot heal itself unless the Spiritual, Mental, and Emotional layers of consciousness are well-developed. Achieving Perfect Health means re-learning and remembering how you were once Perfectly Healthy. You can do this by reconnecting with your higher self and living in a state of heightened wellness consciousness. By doing so, you will find the healthiest version of yourself.
In this study, we assessed the relation between wellness consciousness and emotional intelligence. We used a global measure of emotional intelligence (EI) and four EI subscales. Age, sex, family income, and education level were also included in the models. The results of our study are summarized in Table 4 and Figures 2, 3.
