Wellness Module

Healthy lifestyle is closely related to wellness. Wellness refers to a fine balance of the mind-body and spirit that would result in a person’s overall feeling of well being. It is an integration of physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual, social, environmental and occupational aspects of life. It is commonly conceptualized in the following 7 dimensions:

Physical Wellness: Maintaining a flexible and aerobically fit body; active prevention of body injury and illness; pursuit of healthy eating habits
Intellectual Wellness: Critical thinking applied to social, cultural and political issues; exploratory appreciation of creative arts.
Emotional Wellness: Mature management and expression of emotions; development of a realistic self concept.
Spiritual Wellness: Clear purpose of life; awareness of values and beliefs as related to behavior.
Social Wellness: Effective interpersonal communication; acceptance of human diversities; interest in friendship networking and community welfare.
Environmental Wellness: Capability to live in a clean and safe environment that is not detrimental to health.
Occupational Wellness: Setting of career goals; adequate job search skills; career planning and development.
