Wellness is a state of being that requires an awareness of the seven components and taking steps to improve each one. The end result is a more balanced life. Overall wellness results when the components interact in a healthy, balanced way. The seven components of wellness include:

  • Physical: Maintaining a healthy weight and activity level; getting regular check-ups and medical care as needed
  • Emotional: Encompasses accepting and managing your feelings; recognizing the interaction among thoughts, emotions and behavior; knowing your limitations and navigating difficult, sometimes stressful situations; maintaining healthy relationships with others
  • Environmental: Awareness of the effect your surroundings have on how you feel; living and working in physically and emotionally safe surroundings
  • Intellectual: Participating in creative, stimulating and growth-oriented activities; sharing the skills and knowledge you possess with others
  • Social: Emphasizes the interdependence among ourselves, others and nature; connecting with the environment and the community; It involves using good communication skills; having meaningful relationships; respecting yourself and others; and creating a support system that includes family and friends
  • Vocational: Feeling satisfied with the work you have selected; having a sense of accomplishment and purpose
  • Spiritual: Having a solid, consistent value system from which to operate; finding meaning and purpose in your life
