8 DIMENSIONS OF WELLNESS http://www.unh.edu/health-services/ohep/wellness Wellness: In Eight Dimensions1 Wellness Wellness involves being aware of ourselves as whole people, including a sense of balance and comfort. It is a sense that things are going well for us today, and can continue to go well for us tomorrow. It is a sense that we have meaningful relationships and a sense of meaning and purpose. Although we may have setbacks, or experience stress we are resilient, have strength, material resources, and the support of others to survive and thrive. Stress, addictions, illness, and traumatic experiences impact wellness and balance. At the Institute, we believe that helping people improve their personal wellness, as they define it, is critical. Wellness incorporates all of the eight dimensions shown on the cover and back of this booklet. Each dimension of wellness can affect our overall quality of life, because wellness directly relates to how long we live (longevity) and how well we live (quality of life). When we look at the eight-dimension model, our attention is drawn to the idea that all eight dimensions are connected. We all know how much they are connected in our lives. When we feel financially stressed (e.g., debt building), we experience anxiety (emotional), sometimes leading to medical problems (physical), our effectiveness at work falls off (occupational), and we may even question our own meaning and purpose in life (spiritual). When we are not working (occupational), we lose some of our opportunities to interact with others (social), cannot get the quality foods and medical care we need to stay well (physical), and may need to move to a place that feels less safe and secure (environmental). Stress, addiction, trauma, disappointment, and loss can impact our wellness and the balance in our lives. It seems important to balance work with play and rest, to balance time out for recuperation and recovery with living our lives fully and productively, and to balance the desire for rapid change with the known effectiveness of slow changes to build good habits. Habits are key for wellness. Our habits affect what we do, how we feel, how we work, how we fuel our mind and body and how we spend or save money. Habits become ingrained, and we have to work consciously to maintain or establish good habits that contribute to our wellness, our valued roles, and our personal goals. Some habits (excessive alcohol, harmful drugs or chemicals, consumption of energy drinks, sugar and fat laden foods) can have immediate or long term negative effects on our physical, mental, and social well-being. Another part of wellness is our valued roles such as friend, worker, volunteer, student, colleague, parent, spouse and community member. These roles provide an identity, drive our daily activities, and ignite our passions. Wellness involves a sense of empowerment. Each day we wake up we can make choices. Empowerment goes hand-in-hand with taking personal responsibility for our day to day choices and our lives. We hope this guide will help you think about your own wellness—what you already do now (your daily routines, habits, and valued life roles and activities), what else you can do or can learn to do, and what type of supports you need to focus on your wellness and balance. One of the things many people find helpful is to look at their own wellness in each dimension. For each of the eight dimensions that follow, record your strengths and areas you may want to 1 www.welltacc.org Peggy Swarbrick and Jay Yudof © May, 2013-rev Collaborative Support Programs of NJ, Inc. change, improve or do better. This wellness booklet can offer some insights to determine things you are doing well and things you may want to start or stop doing. Please use this booklet yourself or share with co-workers or support group members so you can review, share, and grow together. We hope this is helpful. We wish you a successful wellness journey!

8 dimensions of wellness survey
1. Please Complete the wellness assessment below
a. This includes sections titled strengths and things I would like to doas well
as the Self Assessments
2. Savework to help you with your final project
Answer the following questions.
3. In your own words define wellbeing.
It is defined as a feeling of feeling that everything is ok starting from emotional
feeling, financial status, and environmental, intellectual, spiritual, physical and social
sectors.
4. Discuss the interconnected nature of the 8 dimensions of wellbeing.
The connection between eight dimensions of wellbeing comes when they are
examined on how they influence the kind of life one lives, therefore, when one is
affected ten the other is also affected.
a. Include 3 real life examples of how you have recognized or experienced the
intersecting of these dimensions.
For instance when one loses a job, the he or she loses a chance to socialize at
work, financial status goes down, emotional feeling is also affected. Also,
when someone is sick, then that person is not able to work, make money or
even socialize. The person in such situations may not feel like they have a
reason to live; that is spirit. Another case is when someone does not have
money, then the person will live stressed without an opportunity to socialize,
he or she will then end up getting traumatized hence not go to work and use
his or her intelligence.
b. See below for one example of how these dimensions are interconnected
i. I live in an unsafe neighborhood (environmental) therefore I find it
difficult to get outside to perform adequate physical activity (physical)
and I scored low in many of the areas we assessed in class.
