Submitted by Kristin Bogue, Sr. Professional Advisor and Whitney Brown, Coordinator of Assessment ~ Don’t let the dark and cold winter months bring you down. Let us help you focus on the spirit, mind, and body to feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Back in December, we paused in conversation to explore the eight dimensions of wellness to support everyone feeling balanced and ready to enjoy the holiday break.
We explored what ideal wellness looks like and how we support peace and wholeness among ourselves. Barriers to self-care were shared among colleagues and through a holiday fun activity we practiced incorporating the eight dimensions of wellness to inspire the quality of life desired.
Applying a wellness approach can be useful as a pathway to optimal living and helping people achieve their full potential. Consider the following to reflect within yourselves and among colleagues about the interconnectedness of each dimension and how they contribute to your healthy living.
- Can you identify the 8 dimensions of wellness and the roles they play in helping people achieve their full potential?
- Consider what is missing from your current wellness plan.
- How do we support each other to have this balance across all 8 dimensions?
