What Is Power?

Some people think power is defined by the amount of money in your bank account. They think it comes from the kind of car you drive or where you work.To some people, power is material. But, not to us. Living up to your fullest potential everyday? That’s power. It’s the ability to overcome adversity and celebrate every moment on the journey. Power is being independent, but still being able to ask for help. Putting in the hard yards, taking two steps back then three steps forward. Power is making the most of the hand you are dealt and knowing you always have something to offer. No matter where your journey began or where you are today. Now is your time to ‘Live Powerful’.


WHAT MAKES US, US?

THE SIX CIRCLES OF HEALTH

We take a progressive and holistic approach to health and wellbeing at HWBE.

Building balance and supporting in six core areas of health.

PHYSICAL HEALTH

Anything that affects your physical body such as genetics, diet, exercise, illness, disability, environment, economic status, physical accessibility to resources and medical supplies and any other factors that can damage or improve your physical body.

EMOTIONAL HEALTH

Emotional health is not simply feeling happy all or most of the time but experiencing a large variety of emotions (positive and negative). Emotional health includes the ability to regulate and demonstrate feelings in a safe and healthy manner.

COGNITIVE HEALTH

Cognitive health includes multiple factors which when combined, create an individual’s intelligence and/or maintain independence. Important factors include the ability to learn, memory, intuition, judgement, language, reason, concentration, planning and organisation.

CULTURAL HEALTH

Cultural health is a combination of social and physical health as it is influenced by our community laws, beliefs, attitudes, behaviours and values and has the potential to strongly influence emotional, social and physical health.

SPIRITUAL HEALTH

Spiritual health often includes the belief of unity with a higher power and often includes higher values of hope, purpose, faith and peace. Spirituality can be a strong motivational factor for improving/maintaining all other forms of health.
