Habit 7: Principles of Balanced Self-Renewal by Stephen R. Covey

Habit 7 is taking the time to sharpen the saw. You must work proactively (Quadrant II) to renew the four dimensions of your nature physical, spiritual, mental and social/economic.

The Physical Dimension
The physical dimension involves caring for your physical body eating the right foods, getting enough rest and relaxation, and exercising on a regular basis.

The Spiritual Dimension
The spiritual dimension is your center, your commitment to your value system. It draws upon the sources that inspire and uplift you and tie you to timeless truths of humanity.

The Mental Dimension
It’s important keep your mind sharp by reading, writing, organizing and planning. Read broadly and expose yourself to great minds.

The Social/Emotional Dimension
Our emotional life is primarily developed out of and manifested in our relationships with others. Renewing our social/emotional dimension requires focus and exercise in our interaction with others.

Self renewal must include balanced renewal in all four dimensions physical, spiritual, mental and social/emotional, which is the basic principle of Balanced and Healthy lifestyle. Neglecting any one area negatively impacts the rest of whole our life, the rest of all four dimensions physical, spiritual, mental and social/emotional.
