The true nature of wellness is when an ecosystem works together in harmony. For my purposes in this blog, that ecosystem is the human mind and body. I truly believe a person cannot achieve total wellness unless all of his or her dimensions of vitality are positively working together. The photo above is courtesy of Discover Wellness Solutions,
a website dedicated to ending vague wellness concepts for a more succinct definition. The 8 Dimensions of Wellness
according to the site are:
Emotional Wellness - optimism, trust and self-esteem
Environmental Wellness - interaction with nature
Financial Wellness - balancing priorities to meet basic needs
Intellectual Wellness - self related to community and cultural activities
Occupational Wellness - are your unique talents being wasted?
Physical Wellness - eating habits and physical activities keeping bodies in peak conditions
Social Wellness - personal friends and how you spend your time
Spiritual Wellness - questioning meaning and purpose
While wellness as a single word is common, if not overly used, term to describe many things in life from exercising and eating right to relationships, I thoroughly enjoyed the concept of breaking it down into a multifaceted approach. When we take a step back and look at the bigger picture, we can see that if a person is ill they cannot spend time with loved ones therefore impacting both physical and emotional wellness. And, if a person has millions of dollars yet no social circles to enjoy her or his financial resources with, social wellness suffers.
As an avid wellness enthusiast myself, I wanted to share the 8 Dimensions of Wellness
with Home of Wealth's readers to encourage a well-rounded approach to personal wellness that is grounded in unpacking, reclaiming, and re purposing our goals in life.
