Model of Personal Well-Being

Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of, and making choices toward, a healthy and fulfilling life. 

So how is your wellness? Consider each of these dimensions to see how you're doing.

  • Physical: The role that you take in maintaining your body for strength, vitality and energy.
  • Emotional and Mental: Being aware and managing your feelings, being at peace with who you are, and having the tools you need to weather life’s ups and downs.
  • Environmental reflects the impact your environment (home, school, city, planet) has on you and the impact you have on the environment.
  • Financial: Your relationship with money and skills for managing resources, as well as your ability to make good consumer choices and seek out appropriate financial opportunities.
  • Occupational: The work you choose to do and how it contributes to your community and fulfills you.
  • Social: How you choose to define and connect with your community and the people around you.
  • Intellectual: Feeling stimulated and engaged with learning and staying open to new ideas and perspectives.
  • Spiritual: Your understanding of your place and purpose, how you make meaning of what happens to you, and what your mind goes to for comfort or relief.
