As someone who works in Wellness, I'm often asked the question “How can I lead a healthier life?” Friends, family, and strangers alike will ask me this and you know what I always say..."It’s complicated." Like any relationship, it's not a one size fits all. The relationship between you and your wellness is... "complicated."
When I first got into this field, I was aware that Wellness was a complicated topic. I earned my bachelor's degree in Public Health and a certificate as a yoga instructor and continue to echo "it's complicated." You might ask, "Why?" Keep reading to find out!
Before I chose my concentration, I knew that in order for one to achieve the title of “healthy”, it wasn't as simply as changing one thing in your life. It takes changing several different factors to achieve a level of health that can be sustained.
With that, I did more and more research on what Wellness is and came across the "7 Dimensions of Wellness."
The "7 Dimensions of Wellness" divides Wellness into 7 parts:
According to the University of Wisconsin, “Each dimension contributes to our own sense of wellness or quality of life, and each affects and overlaps the others. At times, one may be more prominent than others, but neglect of any one dimension for any length of time has adverse effects on overall health.”
Do you want more information about each of these 7 dimensions?
Of course, nobody is perfect! We all lack in areas and excel in others. That’s why we created this quiz where you can see which areas require more of your attention and which areas you’re rocking!
Check out our website, read about the different dimensions, and do the quizzes to take your first step towards leading a happier and healthier life.
We want to encourage everyone to explore different areas of wellness!
