Because there's more to health than the physical body...

The Five Aspects of Health



Understanding the Five Aspects of Health

Your custom-designed Sophus Health program is crafted to give your employees viable solutions for a healthier lifestyle, which can save everyone money by reducing claims. That’s the beauty of our approach, and the underlying wisdom of the Sophus way is that we embrace the five critical aspects of health and well-being.

The physical health of the human body is in constant flux as we respond to our inner and outer environments. Most everyone understands that to remain healthy certain steps must be taken: get exercise, eat well, avoid accidents, get plenty of rest, avoid stress, get regular checkups and seek professional help when necessary. Of course, the medical insurance will always be there to cover you when you need it. But Sophus Health also considers the less obvious influences on sustained wellness. Things like our relationships, communication, attitudes and beliefs, even how we handle our finances.

  • Personalized Health Recommendations:  Your employees can use our online lifestyle health assessment survey to get specific recommendations for their situations. This includes medical issues, nutrition, diet and lifestyle factors.

Money worry is one of the leading causes of stress and disease. Your employees can reduce that stress by acquiring a better understanding of the role money plays in their lives. Also by learning financial skills, making better use of personal resources and developing a plan for the future. Indeed, the good feelings resulting from true financial prosperity can help sustain wellness.

  • Full Service Financial Education Services: Your employees can learn to address issues that can contribute to financial stress, such as: debt, buying a home and planning for retirement. The Sophus Learning Culture provides a full range of financial planning tools to help your employees organize and track their personal finances, as well as set appropriate goals, strategies and resolve problems.

Spirituality can certainly take many forms, but, the common denominator between those variations is that this is where we can align our experiences with meaning. It is that place where we allow the large questions to arise and exploration to begin. At Sophus Health, we help your employees explore and deepen this connection. Independent of religion, of course, we look for ways to celebrate those individual connections. This enables your employees to be more present in their daily lives and therefore have a greater sense of fulfillment while following their own path.

  • Spiritual Guidance and Resources: Your employees can take advantage of a variety of self-tests and spiritual guidance resources. The Sophus Learning Culture provides the latest in e-courses, health techniques and reviews.

When there is friction between co-workers or family members, a person’s ability to be effective and 100% functional is substantially compromised. That’s why Sophus Health places a high value on building strong teams and relationships. Indeed, healthy interpersonal relationships set the stage for creativity, contentment and community that thrives.

  • Relationship Evaluation:  The Sophus Learning Culture will work with you and your employees to assess and evaluate current relationships, and provide help with learning how to better handle relationship challenges. We have the resources necessary for all concerned to develop healthy behaviors that lead more fulfilled lives.


img_Number5   Self Health is essential for positive energy and creativity.

Exploring the self is a process of uncovering and developing our own innate being. It is an action where we give ourselves permission to take a journey into self-knowing, completely free of judgment. This awareness manifests as self-expression, self-compassion, self-confidence, creativity and leadership. Your employees may gain a greater sense of satisfaction, become more productive and lead richer lives when self-health gets the attention and energy it needs to flourish.

  • Creativity Profile: he Sophus Learning Culture has multiple tools and resources available to help your employees discover their natural inner strength. They can actually learn to apply the thinking skills of creative genius to life’s challenges that are personal or professional in nature.
