6 Dimensions of Wellbeing

Six Dimensions of Wellbeing

Wellbeing is a humanistic approach to life that incorporates several dimensions. Achieving an optimal level of well-being 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 the needs of your body. 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. Creating connections with others to share in life experiences allows individuals to exchange support and develop a sense of fellowship and belonging. Those who 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 in life. Each person’s understanding of spirituality can be religious or secular in nature; those who are spiritually balanced 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 the role that we play in keeping it 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

Experiencing personal achievement and satisfaction

Occupational wellbeing is about enriching your life through selecting appropriate leisure activities and career pursuits. Those that are occupationally satisfied will choose a career that is consistent with their personal 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.
