What is Wellness?
Wellnessis the creation of a health culture within the workplace focusing on the promotion, prevention and maintenance of good health so that employees can function at their optimum physical, mental, emotional and social levels and that these factors do not interfere with job performance.
Wellness is a lifestyle. A way of living that encourages good physical and mental health. It is a balanced lifestyle. It is the full integration of physical, occupational, social, spiritual, intellectual emotional and environmental wellness. Each of these seven dimensions act and interact in a way that contributes to our own quality of life.
The 7 dimensions of Wellness
Physical wellness involves aspects of life that are necessary to keep yourself in top condition. Optimal physical wellness is developed through the combination of beneficial physical activity/exercise and healthy eating habits. Elemental components of physical wellness include building muscular strength and endurance, cardiovascular strength and endurance and flexibility
Physical wellness is also concerned with developing personal responsibility for your own health care, such as caring for minor illnesses and knowing when professional medical attention is needed. Developing physical wellness empowers you to be able to monitor your own vital signs and understand your body's warning signs. You'll understand and appreciate the relationship between sound nutrition and how your body performs. The physical benefits of looking good and feeling terrific most often lead to the psychological benefits of enhanced self-esteem, self-control, determination and a sense of direction.
