Wellness means overall well-being
It is an ongoing process and a life-long journey, not a one-time event. Building the eight interconnected dimensions of wellness into everyday habits will improve quality of life. It may also help individuals live longer, manage current health conditions, and support recovery from illness, injury, and addiction.
Eight Dimensions of Welfare
When you envision someone who is “well” and “healthy,” what comes to mind? What factors do you think influence wellness?
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has identified eight dimensions of welfare to focus on to optimize health. The eight dimensions include: emotional, spiritual, intellectual, physical, environmental, financial, occupational, and social.
Wellness can be compromised by lack of support, trauma, unhelpful thinking styles, chronic illness/disability, and substance use. The eight dimensions are described below.
Emotional wellbeing is the ability to cope effectively with life and build satisfying relationships with others. People with healthy emotional welfare feel confident, in control of their feelings and behaviors, and are able to handle life challenges. Working through life challenges can build resiliency as we learn that setbacks can be overcome.
Spiritual wellbeing is related to values and beliefs that help you find meaning and purpose in your life.
Intellectual welfare is when you recognize your unique talents to be creative and you seek out ways to use your knowledge and skills.
Physical welfare is affected by physical activity, healthy nutrition, and adequate sleep. There are many examples of physical activity that range in levels of intensity from light to vigorous.
Environmental welfare is related to the surroundings you occupy. This dimension of health connects your overall well-being to the health of your environment. Your environment, both your social and natural surroundings, can greatly impact how you feel.
Financial welfare is a feeling of satisfaction with your financial situation. Finances are a common stressor for people, so being able to minimize worry about this aspect of your life can enhance your overall wellness.
Occupational welfare is a sense of satisfaction with your choice of work. Occupational welfare involves balancing work and leisure time, building relationships with coworkers, and managing workplace stress.
Social welfare is a sense of connectedness and belonging. The social dimension of health involves creating and maintaining a healthy support network.
