The
Four Quadrants
Body Mind Spirit Emotion

Within a holistic approach, it is important to nurture one’s spiritual side for overall wellness. One’s sense of spirituality is different for everyone. Spirituality can include feelings of love, peace, and a sense of connection with other living things, faith, respect for self and others, and a sense of gratitude and hope.

There are various signs of having an imbalance in one’s spiritual quadrant, including having a lack of purpose, having a lack of identity, and not wishing to connect with others. When your spiritual quadrant is balanced with the other quadrants, you will feel your best.

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.
