What is Wellness?

Wellness involves a holistic approach to health and well-being that views many aspects of life as contributing to how “well” you are. As defined by the National Wellness Institute, wellness includes six dimensions:

Occupational Wellness

Physical Wellness

Social Wellness

Intellectual Wellness

Spiritual Wellness

Emotional Wellness

additional dimensions:

Financial Wellness

Mental Wellness

The National Wellness Institute defines wellness as

“an active process through which people become aware of, and make choices toward, a more successful existence.

Wellness is a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential.

Wellness is multidimensional and holistic, encompassing lifestyle, mental and spiritual well-being, and the environment.

Wellness is positive and affirming.”
