I have learned about diversified ways in which the four lenses can be utilized/applied to prioritize/affect health conditions. Emotional peace, sympathy towards other individuals and empathizing can ensure that emotional disturbances/conflicts are minimized (Garcia, 2015). Therefore, wellness is concerned not only by keeping physical health conditions good but also psychological/mental states/conditions good by maintenance of societal/communal peace/harmony. Selflessness is important in case of maintenance of wellness because relationships can become filled with distress in acts of selfishness, jealousy and hatred (Garcia, 2015).
