10 Essential Elements of Wellbeing©

Every system of our body is connected. The mind - body - spirit connection is essential. It’s the foundation of ALL health. 

No two humans in this world are the same. We are unique beings and our beautiful bodies, hormones, ailments, values and stressors are all different. Nutrition, relationships and environmental influences can significantly affect our overall mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. This is most evident when we (women) traverse through major transitional chapters, including pregnancy, birth and menopause.

I fused my personal belief system, education and coaching experience to create the 10 Essential Elements of Wellbeing©, the foundation of all Nicole King Holistic Health & Wellbeing Programs. It’s important to realise that the 10 Elements do not stand independently of each other, but rather powerfully impact one another. Over the course of a tailored program, we mindfully work together to integrate each of the elements with the next to achieve optimum health and alignment.

Physical - Spiritual - Meditation - Nutritional - Environmental - Intellectual - Social - Occupational - Financial - Emotional.


Physical Wellbeing  - The Number One Value in life. Being physically well means that you care for your body through nutrition, physical activity, appropriate hygiene and the ever important sleep. Your body is a complex, beautifully designed system that can become your greatest tool. We’ll work through adopting healthy habits and learning to avoid the destructive ones. What's the secret to physical wellbeing? Listen to our body and follow the needs and requirements of our own unique genetics, temperament, and environment. If we want to stay healthy and live a long life, finding new ways to move, stretch and exercise daily. It doesn’t matter what activity you do (walk, dance, surf, yoga, sex, touch footy), just find something you enjoy and move your body! Sleep is often a challenge with newborns, sick children and general disruptions, all you can do is try your best. Although, I do have some very helpful hints and tips on how to restore and rest when disruptions arise.

Nutritional Wellbeing - Technically this Element could come under ‘Physical Wellbeing’, however I place such value on the importance of ‘Nutrition’ and ‘Gut Heath’ that it stands alone as an Essential Element. What you eat literally controls almost every function of your body and mind. Nutrition means eating a healthy, balanced and nutrient-dense diet. Food provides our bodies with energy, protein, fats, vitamins, minerals and nutrients which provide nourishment essential to live, grow and function properly. We focus on Gut Health (which is vital as it contains 80% of your immune system and is the 2nd brain). In other words, food is medicine. In this digital world we’re bombarded with information and fad food trends (eat this, don't eat that), and it can be challenging to know if you are actually eating a balanced diet. Breaking it down into essential versus nonessential nutrients for your body and lifestyle can help simplify and streamline your diet, making it easier than ever to achieve better health.

Intellectual Wellbeing  - I will forever be a student, not only for my own pleasure but so I can best serve my clients. Intellectual Wellbeing is the ability to open our minds to new ideas and experiences, identifying creative abilities and finding ways to expand knowledge and continually challenge your mind. It’s having a desire to stay curious and an inner passion flourish to reveal the true you.

Meditation  - The transformative potential of meditation shouldn’t be underestimated. In fact, I would suggest it become a centrepiece of your wellbeing. Regular practice can improve our sense of self, connectedness, boost focus & productivity, calmness, sleep, energy, and immune system, whilst reducing feelings of anxiety, stress and depression. We meditate to get great at life - NOT to get great at meditation. Meditation is known to enhance the flow of constructive thoughts and positive emotions. I teach clients a simple and effortless meditation technique they can instil into their daily routine.

Emotional Wellbeing  - Being emotionally well means that you have high self-esteem, a strong sense of self, a healthy body image and a positive attitude where you are able to manage stress and cope effectively with the every day events of your life. Now, are you emotionally well? If so, you are in tune with your feelings and are able to acknowledge and express emotions in a constructive way. I specialise in guiding you to better cope with the small or big challenges that life can bring. This element also includes, self-love. Too often this element comes last on the priority list. As Mothers we naturally put our families needs before our own. But you MUST give yourself permission to practice self-care to have a fulfilling life. High quality self-care is crucial. It is multifaceted and goes beyond the occasional mani-pedi or massage. While these are great examples of taking time for yourself, in order to reap the substantial benefits of self-care, you must make a consistent commitment and expand your routine of caring for yourself to nourish all levels of your being.

Spiritual Wellbeing  - Is the feeling of being connected to a higher reality. It is a deeply personal process of understanding and living a life that reflects your beliefs, ethics, morals and values. Do you feel calm and at peace with who you are? Are you concerned with the human spirit opposed to material or physical things? Are you able to practice forgiveness and compassion in life to yourself and others? Being spiritually well means that you find purpose and meaning in your existence, as well as the existence of all humankind. As mothers, Self-Care and Spiritual Wellbeing are often the most neglected aspects of our selves. A strong spirit helps us to survive and thrive with grace, even in the face of difficulty

Social Wellbeing  - Finding love and belonging is critical to a long and healthy life. As mothers, so many of us feel isolated and alone. We all want to feel as though someone has 'our back, that we have a sense of belonging, security and a strong support system. Healthy (or unhealthy) relationships impact us mentally and physically (we've all been there). Social Wellbeing is balancing romantic, social and personal time. It’s setting healthy boundaries (learning to say no and asking for help), and treating others (including ourselves) with respect. Being connected to others in 'community' (in real life ladies, not on social media) is a necessary ingredient for health, just like food, water, oxygen, sleep, or movement.

Environmental Wellbeing  - Our physical environment plays a HUGE role in our health, you want to find your surroundings to be enjoyable, peaceful. Your happy place. You are able to create home, work, and play environments that make you feel creative, safe, and inspired. This also includes environmental toxins (BPA's, pesticides, perfumes, cosmetics, shampoos, deodorant and toys!) which can interfere with the body’s endocrine (hormone and cell signalling) system and produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune effects. It is also the ability to recognise and respond to the impact of our personal and environmental decisions, and recognise our own responsibility of taking care of the quality of our environment, surroundings and the entire planet for ourselves and future generations.

Occupational Wellbeing  - The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away. Many working mothers tell me about their feelings of 'mothers guilt’. The idea of 'work-life’ balance is BS, a complete myth. We want to find meaningful work that we excel at, but we must take a more fluid, realistic approach to life that provides flexibility, opposed to putting pressure on ourselves. Instead of exhausting yourself by trying to achieve 'balance', learn to tilt (which is actually the opposite to balance), I can teach you this mindset. It took me 15 years of working in the wrong career field and two babies to finally have the courage to make changes, listen to my heart and follow my true passion of nutrition and health.

Financial Wellbeing  - Being financially well means that you are satisfied with your current financial situation and are not living beyond your means. You’ve learned to not let money be the driving force of your life. Your ‘wealth’ refers not so much to your net worth as it does to your outlook.
