Reinvent Yourself:
Discover the Rewards of Emotional Health and Wellness
through the Six Dimensions of Wellness*

 

"Where we are able to feel emotionally strong or stable, our lives are richer; problems easier to solve or manage; and, health is better: We will enjoy the riches of personal relationships and find balance between work, leisure, family and friends."  ~~ Dr. Teresa M. I. Schaefer

01

Emotional 

The emotional dimension of wellness recognizes the value of awareness and acceptance of one's feelings. Emotional wellness is recognized in the capacity to manage feelings and behaviors, the development of autonomy, and the ability to cope effectively with stress.

03

Physical 

Physical health and emotional health go

hand in hand. Feeling and looking good

result in improved self-esteem, self-control, determination, and direction. Nutritional awareness, substance control, and realistic physical health routines improve personal outcomes.

05

Spiritual 

Spiritual wellness is found when feelings and actions are consistent with beliefs and values. The search for meaning and purpose is often characterized by harmony between internal personal feelings and behaviors and the experience of your path in life.

02

Intellectual 

The intellectual dimension of wellness recognizes one's creative and stimulating mental activities. A well person expands his or her knowledge and skills while discovering the potential for sharing these gifts with others.

04

Social 

Social wellness is found in acknowledging the interdependence we have with others. Willful choices to nurture personal relationships and contribute to the community in which we live fosters our social health. 

06

Occupational 

The occupational dimension of wellness recognizes personal satisfaction and enrichment of one's life through work -- in and out of the home, paid and unpaid. Our ability to contribute our unique gifts, skills, and talents through work is both personally rewarding and meaningful.
