The “Whole 5” represents the mental, physical, spiritual, social, and emotional aspects of the whole person. Each module is interconnected and affects the other playing an integral role in promoting a good quality of life and sense of wellbeing. Since we are unique from one another in our make-up it is not uncommon to gravitate towards one or two modules and less towards the others. While this is certainly natural, the true challenge is to incorporate the others into your life as well.
