What is Wellness?

Wellness can be defined as a state that combines health and happiness. It could be considered a healthy balance of mind, body and spirit that results in the overall feeling of well-being.

The first step in improving your wellness is to know and understand that your wellness has seven dimensions that may help you reach your highest potential. These seven dimensions of wellness are: physical, emotional, spiritual, social, intellectual, occupational and environmental.

How can you improve your Wellness?

Make a personal decision to incorporate or reinforce some good habits into your daily life. Below are important aspects that impact your well-being and may help you discover how to improve your habits.

Physical: Before making any changes in your life, please ask your physician about incorporating physical activities and the type of exercise or effort you may include into your daily routine. With your physician's authorization, start slowly and regularly integrate your personal physical routine. Eat healthier types of foods, according to your physician's recommendations, take your medications following your physician's prescriptions, and also get enough sleep; a good night's sleep usually improves your well-being.

Including these simple steps in the physical aspect of your daily routine may help you improve your health and your ability to function.

Emotional: Your emotions and feelings are inside of you and no one can see them from the outside. If you think you need help in managing your emotions, consult with your physician. Recognizing your limitations, asking for professional advice when needed and behaving responsibly may help to improve your emotional wellness. Activities like watching and caring for a pet, growing plants and volunteering may help you improve the emotional aspect of your life.

Spiritual: Exploring habits that help improve your peace and relaxation are very helpful. Reading about or discussing your values and beliefs may bring pleasure to your daily life.

Social: Participating in community activities may help you interact with other people. Find information in your local newspapers, magazines and media about activities happening in your area. You will be amazed at how many social events are available every month and many of them are offered at no cost.

Intellectual: Engaging in creative activities such as arts and crafts, playing a musical instrument or taking computer classes may help to keep you active and satisfied. Include mental games like Sudoku and crossword puzzles in your routine.

Occupational: Sharing your skills, talents and abilities with other people may give your life a sense of fulfillment and may help you improve your level of productivity and independence.

Environmental: Discovering eco-friendly products such as clothing and tools may help you improve your well-being. There are many gadgets and designs available that help increase your ability to function. Getting information about local shelters can help prepare you in case of catastrophic situations such as a fire or storm and will help to improve your sense of security.
