Six Dimensions of Wellbeing

Wellbeing is a humanistic approach to life incorporating several dimensions. Achieving an optimal level of wellbeing is an ongoing personal journey. The concept of wellness is holistic, meaning that one area cannot be neglected while another is fulfilled.

1. Physical

Maintaining the health of your body

Physical wellbeing involves being attentive to your body’s needs. This includes seeing your physician regularly, getting sufficient sleep each night, eating a well-balanced diet, staying hydrated, and getting plenty of exercise.

2. Social

Healthy interactions with others

Social wellbeing emphasizes the importance of relationships. Connecting with others to share life experiences allows you to exchange support and develop a sense of fellowship and belonging. Those who are socially well create relationships based on interdependence instead of codependency. These healthy relationships involve mutual trust and respect.

3. Spiritual

Awareness of Personal Beliefs

Spiritual wellbeing is about exploring and discovering the meaning and purpose of life. Each person’s understanding of spirituality can be religious or secular; spiritually balanced people have an appreciation for the depth of life and a thorough understanding of themselves.

4. Environmental

Responsibility for your surroundings and the recognition of interdependence with nature

Environmental wellbeing involves learning more about our physical surroundings and our role in keeping them healthy, safe and sustainable.

5. Emotional

Cultivating awareness and acceptance of your feelings

Emotional wellbeing involves recognizing, managing, and appropriately expressing a wide range of feelings, including happiness, joy, fear, anger and sadness.

6. Occupational

Experience personal achievement and satisfaction

Occupational wellbeing enriches your life by selecting appropriate leisure activities and career pursuits. Occupationally satisfied people will choose a career consistent with their beliefs, goals, lifestyle, and values. One must have an understanding of the commitment, preparation and discipline required to achieve success in his or her desired profession.
