Such needs may include visits by family members, and allow their spiritual leader to spend time with them among others. I also believe in maintaining my own health by leading a healthy lifestyle. Taking good care of myself is vital in ensuring that I am in a position to perform optimally in my work.

Holistic health thinks that health is maintained or reduced by the decision you make every day in all areas of your life and this could: emotional, mental, physical, or spiritual and these four functions help us go through the day and keep us going.
