What is Wellness?

SAMHSA defines wellness not as the absence of disease, illness, or stress but the presence of purpose in life, active involvement in satisfying work and play, joyful relationships, a healthy body and living environment, and happiness.


Eight Dimensions of Wellness

-Environmental—Good health by occupying pleasant, stimulating environments that support well-being

-Financial—Satisfaction with current and future financial situations

-Intellectual—Recognizing creative abilities and finding ways to expand knowledge and skills

-Occupational—Personal satisfaction and enrichment from one’s work

-Physical—Recognizing the need for physical activity, healthy foods, and sleep

-Social—Developing a sense of connection, belonging, and a well-developed support system

-Spiritual—Expanding a sense of purpose and meaning in life
