The
Four Quadrants
Body Mind Spirit Emotion

It is important to balance one’s intellectual side for overall wellness. This includes nurturing one’s learning and creativity, gaining knowledge and wisdom, and continually growing.

There are various signs of having an imbalance in one’s intellectual quadrant, including losing an interest in learning and studying, having low self-esteem, and having difficulties with communication. When your intellectual quadrant is balanced with the other quadrants, you will feel your best.

Learn more about your physical quadrant and possible signs of balance and imbalance.

A holistic approach to wellness recognizes that a person’s body, mind, spirit, and emotions are all interrelated and need to be continually brought into balance. Experiences which are part of the physical quadrant (e.g. insomnia) also affect the other quadrants (a person’s mind, spirit, and emotions). How to achieve balance is on-going and will be different for each person. A journey towards balance and wellness may involve self-reflection, connecting with friends, family, and community, using a variety of community resources, and/ or seeking support from a trained professional.
