When considering a person’s overall well-being, the Air Forces’ whole airman concept is a well-rounded approach to living a healthy and resilient life. The reason behind this is that it considers all aspects of the person. There is a focus on the body, mind, spirit and social aspects of who we are. Attention to all four of these areas is essential to living a balanced life. This is because in essence all these areas work together. For example, if you suffer an injury, you experience physical pain in your body, which affects your thoughts (mind), your desires/beliefs (spirit) and those around you (social).
