The term and meaning of vitality can be seen as a quality that has no connotations with a “divine or spiritual life force” like Prana, Qi, or Mana, but rather as a natural function (or result) of our bodily energy systems.
Vitality then is seen as being strong, healthy, vigorous, dynamic, and “full of energy.” A lack of vitality is usually described as having a “lack of energy.” In fact, when we experience less vitality, our wellbeing comes under pressure, and we may fall seriously ill — physically, emotionally, and/or mentally.
The reasons for a lack of vitality are generally attributed to physical health issues, but also to various mental and emotional health problems. These health conditions can obstruct the creation, transformation, and/or distribution of necessary vital energies through our biological system.
By contrast, a simple lack of appropriate “fuel,” such as poor nutrition, or poor air quality, can also get our energetic system to malfunction, and subsequently our complete biological system.
To increase our overall vitality, health, and general wellbeing there are a wide range of treatments that work with/on our energy flow, such as Reiki, Qigong, magnetism, herbal remedies, physical exercise, diets, acupuncture, meditation, and a variety of massage and hands-on manual therapies.
But it doesn’t stop there: environmental, social, and relationship changes often play an equally important role to increase our vitality, and finally our health, wellbeing, and happiness.
