Wellness compasses 6 components of life that lead to a better state of health and well being:
Emotional wellness Practicing emotional wellness reminds us that both positive and negative emotions affect how we respond and adapt to our surroundings. It inspires a sense of relaxation and inner strength.
Social wellness Social wellness is the ability to create and maintain a health circle of relationships. Isolation leads to negative emotions and having too many people can be overwhelming to maintain. Learn to build nurturing bonds. Improving this will improve emotional wellness.
Physical wellness Respect and responsibility for taking care of your body promotes a desired sense of optimal health and physical functionality across your lifespan. This dimension encourages a balance in physical activity, exercise, rest and relaxation, nutrition, mental health and well-being.
Occupational wellness "Work is just work" is a segment of most of the population. Taking a moment to explore opportunities in your career will allow you to discover new tasks and skills that lead to a greater sense of fulfillment.
Spiritual wellness Spiritual wellness is the least understood component. People immediately equate this with religion, but that's not always the case. It can simply mean deepening the peace within oneself and the world. The dimension can be defined in terms of religious faith, personal values, moral beliefs or underlying mind body connection. This enhances all other dimensions of wellness.
Intellectual wellness Never stop learning! Engage in creative and mentally stimulating activities. This means participating in activities that expand your knowledge and skills academically, culturally, communicatively to foster a greater sense of fulfillment. Improving social wellness is one of the best ways to also improve emotional wellness.
