The term “radiant health” is thrown around quite a bit, but what does it really mean? What does it feel like to nurture the mind, body, and spirit into a space of ideal wellness? I’ve been feeling a deep pull to explore this topic, as this word holds significant weight in my personal health journey as well Living Wholly’s intention to support others on this path. Sometimes, I ask myself - what is radiant health, inside + out, anyway? I am also, curious if others know what that means for them. Let’s explore...
In all honesty, when I consider all of the ways I could begin to shift into radiant health, I never know if it’s possible to actually reach this state of being. It sometimes feels like a double-edged sword to have so many avenues that lead to vitality – so many choices – so much that we want + need to do.
Because of this, the first choice I’m going to make in favor of radiant health is to slow down and give myself permission to explore what creates the most impact and joy. I’m not going to try and do it all. I’m going to gently work through my list of practices, and test out what feels best for me in this moment. I’ll commit to what feels effective, and let the rest go – for now. I’m going to keep it simple, and celebrate myself every time I show up, taking one step at a time towards optimum health.
The holistic approach may seem cliché or cosmic to some people. It is NOT. It is necessary. If you consider the profound connection emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually - you will understand how important it is to acknowledge each piece of the puzzle. It is all interconnected. It just is. Trust me.
Let’s start with Emotional Detox.
What did the person do or say that hurt me?
How did I feel about it and why did it hurt me?
What has holding on to this grievance cost me?
What are the benefits I will receive by forgiving and letting go?
Next up, Physical Health.
The somewhat obvious component of physical health is highly significant to the whole and is generally the piece that most people can tangibly connect with. Therefore, it is easier to commit to with food + exercise. Check out a few highlights that are important to focus on.

Spiritual connection to a power greater than yourself is profoundly supportive on this journey. In my experience, my relationship to the Divine guides me and provides messages that guide me along this path. I am devoted to experiencing our connection and cultivating a partnership that is co-creative. All in service to returning home within and remembering who I am again and again.
As you consider this list, tune in to what piques your interest and ruminate on other simple shifts you can make that will support you in thriving. In addition, take time to ask yourself how you’re feeling and take some time exploring the answer. Even if we feel pretty good, there’s often an opportunity to feel even better and more at ease – and we deserve to give ourselves the tender loving care to get there.
One thing that’s come up as I explore and dedicate myself to radiant health is the truth that it all serves to create a clearer + more expansive path to contributing radical impact into this world.
