Wellness is defined as the state or condition of being in good physical and mental health. When broken down, there are a lot of different categories of a wholesome life that can be analyzed and worked towards in the pursuit of one’s overall well-being. There have been additions to this list throughout years of research and obvious variations of how people analyze their own personal fulfillment, but the general idea of wellness often encompasses the following 8 branches:
Physical wellness promotes proper care of our bodies for optimal health and functioning. There are many elements of physical wellness that all must be cared for together. Overall physical wellness encourages the balance of physical activity, nutrition and mental well-being to keep your body in top condition.
Emotionally well people are able to express feelings freely and manage feelings effectively. Emotional wellness is not an end stage but a continual process of change and growth. Emotional wellness enables one to maintain satisfying relationships, deal with conflict and remain grounded during stressful times.
Spiritual Wellness is a personal matter involving values and beliefs that provide a purpose in our lives. While different individuals may have different views of what spiritualism is, it is generally considered to be the search for meaning and purpose in human existence, leading one to strive for a state of harmony with oneself and others while working to balance inner needs with the rest of the world.
Intellectual wellness refers to active participation in scholastic, cultural, and community activities. It also involves assimilating what is learned in the classroom with life experience. Valuing and nurturing creativity, curiosity and lifelong learning are part of intellectual wellness.
Social Wellness refers to one’s ability to interact with people around them. It involves using good communications skills, having meaningful relationships, respecting yourself and others, and creating a support system that includes family members and friends.
Environmental wellness inspires us to live a lifestyle that is respectful of our surroundings. This realm encourages us to live in harmony with the Earth by taking action to protect it. Environmental well-being promotes interaction with nature and your personal environment.
Occupational Wellness is the ability to achieve a balance between work and leisure time, addressing workplace stress and building relationships with co-workers. It focuses on our search for a calling and involves exploring various career options and finding where you fit.
Financial Wellness involves the process of learning how to successfully manage financial expenses. Money plays a critical role in our lives and not having enough of it impacts health. Financial stress is repeatedly found to be a common source of anxiety, fear, and poor health. Keeping track of expenses, making a budget, and sticking to it are important skills to have in order to be financially responsible and independent.
