Learn resiliency through the dimensions of wellness
Year of Wellness is all about helping you find your balance and build up a sense of resilience through wellness.
What is resiliency?
Resiliency means responding to challenges and moving forward in a positive way. It is a set of skills that can be learned and practiced. By boosting your resilience, you can build and develop skills to not only cope with these challenges, but also bounce back from them and thrive.
The Wellness Wheel
The Wellness Wheel is a way to think about health holistically. It includes eight dimensions: social, physical, emotional, occupational, spiritual, intellectual, environmental, and financial. Each of these dimensions of wellness are interconnected and work together to support a balanced life. While it is important to think of each dimension individually, being cognizant of how each dimension fits together is important and can contribute to your overall health. Adversity, stress, and day-to-day decisions made in your personal, academic, or work life impact each of these areas, influence how they ultimately function together, and affect your ability to bounce back from difficult and/or unforeseen circumstances.
As we progress through the Wellness Wheel, our goal is to help you develop resilience to alleviate these impacts when possible, consequently making it easier for you to achieve your specific health and wellness goals this year.
