The 8 Dimensions of Wellness

3 Jun

“Wellness” seems to be the buzzword lately, but it is a pretty vague term as far as I’m concerned.  My goal is to get us to think about what wellness really entails.  In lectures at the University of Minnesota, many of my professors described wellness as having 7 different dimensions.  They include the following:

1.) Physical

2.) Social

3.) Emotional

4.) Spiritual

5.) Intellectual

6.) Financial

7.) Occupational

8.) Environmental

The goal of my blog is to describe these dimensions to you and provide you with ways to improve upon each dimension in your life.  I want to point out that each dimension of wellness lies on a continuum.  Some people are at one end, and some are at the other.  However, most of us (myself included) fall somewhere in between.  The point is that we all have work to do, so let’s get started!!
