Wellness is a holistic approach to health that includes the developmental, cognitive, physical, emotional, spiritual, relational, vocational, and contextual parts of us. These eight dimensions of wellness are all interwoven and correlated with one another. What happens when you focus on overall wellness and not just your health?
You have a much higher likelihood of achieving your full potential (no matter your age) by having a conscious, self-directed, and evolving process that focuses on the aspects of your life that drive happiness.
When one dimension suffers, others suffer, too. When you thrive in one area, other areas will thrive, too. This is why it is important to make sure that all aspects of your life are healthy and fulfilled.
Even absent of health issues, older adults can struggle to find happiness without clear purpose and meaning in their life, especially as children become self-sufficient, memories of a successful career can only be seen in the rearview mirror, and unexpected changes to health or ability make activities we once loved hard to enjoy. In this eBook, we will explore what the eight dimensions of wellness are and how you can use them to live a healthier, happier life no matter your age or physical condition.
