Week Nine - The Dimensions of Wellness

What is the definition of wellness? More than ever before, we hear this word in the news, on billboards, in conversation and even at work. Interestingly, there is no universally-accepted definition of wellness. In the practice of The Core Challenge, wellness is a “state of acceptance or satisfaction with our present condition.”

A health nutrition is a fundamental practice for achieving wellness. Wellness is an expanded idea of health and means more than just absence from disease. The first step in practicing a healthy nutrition is to examine your own values: respect, honesty, human life, family, education, health, community and religion. Making Healthy Food Choices is determined largely by your understanding of wellness. True wellness is determined by the decisions you make about how to live your life with vitality and meaning and it is the result of what you eat. There are six dimensions of wellness that are continually influenced by your food choices:

  • Physical Wellness
  • Emotional Wellness
  • Intellectual Wellness
  • Environmental Wellness
  • Spiritual Wellness
  • Social Wellness

Ultimately, the dimensions of wellness all fall into two broader categories, being mental and physical. This is critical to note, as the mental or emotional component is often overlooked as focus on such main staples as physical fitness and chronic disease risk factors. In order to achieve a state of wellness in our own lives or try to guide others to it, we must pay due diligence to each of the dimensions. We may not all be physically fit or free from disease; we can, however, strive for increased wellness by working with what we’ve been dealt.
