What's your S.P.E.N.T.S. Score?

See below.

 

Rationale: The body in some sense is like a machine. It needs to be well oiled and requires maintenance all the time, especially more maintenance as we get older.

 

Exercise is the key formula to fulfill this requirement. In order for a machine to run, it needs fuel. The type and amount are important. Your nutritional component fulfills this need. Just like an engine, if a person just keeps on running at a steady pace, they can "overheat" and breakdown.

 

One thing the body does which is different than most machines is that it can actually repair itself on a daily basis Sleep gives the body the opportunity to perform both preventive and healing functions.

 

At this point we must depart from the comparison to a machine and focus on those aspects that are uniquely human. If we do not invoke thankfulness and gratitude, we will experience a lot of good and it will not make a positive impact which is so vital. We would be left focusing only on the negative.

 

A social and spiritual connection has been proven to be important by numerous studies. In a similar vein, seeing there is purpose and meaning in one's life is another essential component. If things do not go smoothly in one's life and there is a fair share of disappointment, pain and suffering, human beings need a reason to bear with it and to persevere. These six fundamental components can be represented by the acronym "SPENTS".
