Wellness is an active process and involves the interdependence of multiple dimensions in the pursuit of positive well-being. Wellness encompasses 8 dimensions: physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, occupational, financial, and environmental.
- Caring for your mind, body, and soul
- Influenced by culture and life experiences
- Self-defined and dynamic
- Not only the absence of illness or stress. You can still strive for wellness even if you are experiencing these challenges in your life.
Enhancing and maintaining your health and wellness is important for helping you achieve academic success, personal development, and lifelong wellness.
