Blog

At YouDriveHealth we believe in informing our members about relevant articles and information that can help them become more healthy and improve their overall wellness or well-being.  We want to encourage debate – we have noticed that there are different views, often conflicting, and we try to present these different points of view and then give our thoughts.  We don’t claim to be right all the time – we do our research and our team believe it’s more important to present you with facts and let you decide what’s right for you.

As we progress we want to encourage other people to write posts and articles – this will increase the variety of opinion (and increase the volume of posts!).

You’ll see all the latest posts below, and you can decide if you want to see posts of a particular type by selecting a category.

If you want to contribute, click the Contribute button which you’ll find on most pages (including this one!).

You can also go to our full blog, which simply lists all posts in date order.

Health domains

You need to scroll down to see all the info in this popup – sorry for going on so much!

We break down the overall concept of health or wellness into ‘bite-sized chunks’ that we can actually do something about.  The first level we call health domains.

We like the Life of Wellness site and we have chosen the following domains.

1. Emotional Wellness: Awareness and acceptance of feelings
2. Spiritual Wellness: A search for meaning and purpose
3. Intellectual Wellness: Recognition of your creativity, knowledge and skills
4. Physical Wellness: Need for physical activity and balanced nutrition
5. Environmental Wellness: Positive awareness and impact on your environment
6. Financial Wellness: Debt reduction, cash flow balance or financial future planning
7. Occupational Wellness: Personal achievement and enrichment from your career
8. Social Wellness: Contribution to your community

Health Areas

Within each domain, we have included a number of health areas. These are specific issues that you can tackle.  Within each health area, e.g. Depression, once you have subscribed we have built additional information and exercises which you can do to help in the area.

The 8 are:

  • Emotional

You can take a questionnaire, which scores you in each domain.  You can decide which domains you are strong in, and which you need to improve.

Another analysis shows which domains you should look at, but also which domains you want to look at.
