In modern-day culture, often divested from these elements of a balanced life, emotional wellness can be far more elusive. If physical illness, interpersonal loss or chronic pain enter one's life, nurturing the spirit becomes especially challenging. Sometimes, there is a sense of losing one's spirit entirely and this may manifest as anxiety, depression, or difficulty with self-care.
In situations like these, restoring one's emotional health means attending to the mutiple aspects of being that have been disrupted.
