#sense of space: HOLISTIC..what..HOME DESIGN?! 👀


characterised by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of a disease.


characterised by the belief that the parts of something are intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole.

The focus is on maintaining balance and harmony. Your body is made up of five different dimensions: physical, spiritual, social and mental and emotional (psychological). In a holistic point of view, these dimensions should be balanced and working in harmony for you to achieve overall well-being. As one dimension suffers, the rest are also negatively affected, which is why healing strategies should look at all dimensions to address the root problem.

The word “holism” was coined by philosopher Jan Christiaan Smuts in 1926. Smuts stressed that it is impossible to gain a complete understanding of the whole by merely knowing the parts because (as Aristotle said), “the whole is more than the sum of its parts.”

What's unique about this way of living is you observe everything as a whole. You don't look at sickness and say it's something physical, you observe the entire picture - the connection that it has with the other dimensions. It's about living a more mindful lifestyle and being able to connect with 'what' works for us and learn how to use that and get all the benefits and support from our own environment.
