Wellness-How do you look?

Wellness encompasses the overall physical and mental health and well-being of an individual. It involves the active pursuit of choices and lifestyles that lead to a state of holistic health. "How do you look?" in the context of wellness refers to one's physical appearance as a reflection of overall health, including factors like fitness, nutrition, personal hygiene, and the absence of illness, but it also can extend to the outward expression of inner health and balance.

Emotion- How do you think?

Emotion relates to the complex psychological state involving an individual's thoughts, feelings, and physiological changes that influence behavior. "How do you think?" in relation to emotion focuses on the cognitive aspects of emotional experiences, such as how one's thoughts interpret and give meaning to feelings, the awareness and regulation of emotions, and how thought patterns affect emotional well-being.

Language- How do you sound?

Language in this context refers to the means of human communication, both verbal and non-verbal, through which individuals express themselves, share ideas, and connect with others. "How do you sound?" encompasses not just the words chosen but also the tone, pace, and style of communication. It reflects an individual's emotional state, confidence level, intentions, and social and cultural identity.

Life- How do you live?

Life, in this broad sense, refers to the manner in which an individual experiences and navigates their existence, encompassing daily activities, interactions, beliefs, and decisions. "How do you live?" pertains to the lifestyle choices an individual makes, including their habits, values, priorities, and the impact of these choices on their own life and the lives of those around them. It encapsulates the essence of one's being and how they manifest their purpose and values in the world.
