Orikhu Wellbeing Institute (OWI) and its Centre Of Wellbeing …
… take a proactive approach in finding optimal ways of living, offering specific intelligence to upgrade the quality of your life, and promote optimum levels of wellbeing so you can achieve your highest potential, and evoke feelings of power, courage, fulfilment, joy, happiness and satisfaction.
Orikhu sees wellbeing as a holistic integration of the physical, mental, spiritual and environmental – nourishing the body, engaging the mind, and fuelling the spirit – spread over twelve dimensions.
Although wellbeing always includes striving for health, it’s more about living life fully. It’s about designing a personal lifestyle suited to who you are, and living in such a way to be the best version of what your potentials, circumstances, and fate allow.
Orikhu Centre Of Wellbeing Addresses all Components of Wellbeing
There is no consensus around a single definition of what wellbeing encompasses – but there’s a general agreement that, at its minimum, wellbeing includes the presence of positive emotions and moods (feeling good, contentment, happiness), the absence of negative emotions (depression, anxiety), resulting in complete satisfaction with life, feelings of fulfillment and positive functioning, with something meaningful to strive for.
Each dimension of wellbeing contributes to your overall wellbeing status. They are interlaced and can have an influence on one another. Neglecting any one of them for any length of time, can have an adverse effect on your overall wellbeing, so it’s important to maintain harmony in all.
They do not, however, have to be equally balanced. You should aim, instead, to strive for a personal harmony that feels most authentic to you, informed by your priorities, approaches, aspirations, and views of what it means to live life fully.
Traditional Wellbeing Perspectives
Wellbeing is a complex construct that concerns optimal experience and functioning. Previous research on wellbeing has been derived from two general perspectives:
Hedonic approach, which focuses on happiness and defines wellbeing in terms of pleasure attainment and pain avoidance.
Eudaimonic approach, which focuses on meaning and self-realisation and defines wellbeing in terms of the degree to which a person is fully functioning.
These two views have given rise to different research foci and a body of knowledge that is in some areas divergent and in others complementary.
Why Wellbeing Is Important
As a human being, you have an inherent ethical obligation to take your wellbeing seriously to promote feelings of worthiness.
Because sufficient self-care results in being a well-rounded person, someone who is able to look after him/herself and through that, able to serve others and contribute to society.
They feel healthy and full of energy to take on daily activities. They are satisfied, interested, and engaged – experiencing a sense of accomplishment from their activities and consider their lives to be meaningful.
Individuals with high levels of wellbeing are more productive at work, earn more money, and are more capable to contribute to their family and communities.
In health, they are associated with little risk of disease, illness, and injury, better immune functioning, speedier recovery, and increased longevity.
Orikhu’s Wellbeing Framework
The 12 dimensions of Orikhu’s wellbeing framework are the currency of a life that matters.
They may not constitute every nuance of what’s important for everyone, but they do represent which are essential to most people. Although these dimensions are universal across cultures, and nationalities, people take different paths to increasing their individual wellbeing.
The aim is to live most effectively in all dimensions to experience fully optimised wellbeing. And if that’s something of value to you, working on each dimension becomes vital.
The dimensions are interlinked into each other, and there’s no clear division between them, thus illustrated as a framework only to assist as a guide.
With a holistic and integrated approach, Orikhu Wellbeing Centre conceptualises, develops, produces, manufactures, delivers, and distributes products, content, programs and experiences across the 12 dimensions of wellbeing, promoting an optimised lifestyle as informed by original intelligence.
