Holistic as defined by Oxford dictionary: PHILOSOPHY- characterized by comprehension of the parts of something as intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole. MEDICINE- characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of a disease.
Taking a holistic approach to health and fitness includes training not only the body (through exercise and nutrition), but the body, mind and spirit simultaneously. It is the understanding that even if you achieve your dream body, you may still struggle with being unhappy, and ultimately, unhealthy.
Your fitness journey should not solely revolve around your physical appearance. By first focusing on strengthening your relationship with yourself and practicing consistent self-love and care, achieving your body goals will be a breeze.
