How does the New Zealand term ‘Hauora’ link to ‘self-concept’?
Hauora is a Māori philosophy that encompasses four different approaches to health including Social Well-Being, Physical Well-Being, Mental and Emotional well-being, and Spiritual well being. In order to be a healthy balanced person, you need to be strong in all 4 walls including self-concept.
Spiritual Well-Being – Beliefs, Religions, Values
Physical Well-Being – Being healthy, Hygiene, Taking care of your body
Social Well-Being – Relationships, Family, Friends, Talking
Mental and EmotionalWell-Being – How you think and react to problems to ideas.
Self Concept is your idea about yourself, How you see yourself, Strengths and Weaknesses.
I think the New-Zealand term, Hauora links to Self-Concept because it looks at all aspects of your health, not only the Physical part. In order to be a healthy individual, you need to be strong in all Four walls of the Hauora house to be a balanced person; physically, spiritually, socially and emotionally.
